DAY 16: PRAYER POINTS
» Pray for the Redemption of God’s Holy Land
¤ “In Ezekiel 36: 22 – 28, God tells of His plan to bring the people back. He didn’t say that the people were being brought back because of their own righteousness; rather, He says that He is bringing them back for the sake of His Name.
In Hebraic thought, a name stood for the character of a person.
When God says He is doing something for the sake of His Name, He is saying that His Reputation is at stake.
He promised to do certain things and He will fulfill them so that the nations will know that He is God.” (“For Zion’s Sake I will not be Silent,” by Rebecca Brimmer, page 101, Bridges for Peace.)

And you will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people and I will be your God.” Ezekiel 36:26 – 28
