Keep me and all who are related to me from any hint of hatred toward Israel, your ancient people.
Let us love them and pray for their good always, longing so much for their salvation that we, like Paul, should have sorrow and unceasing anguish because of their alienation from you.
Father, you gave such honor and wonderful gifts to them: You called them by your name; they are Israelites. To them belong the sonship, the glory, the worship, and the promises. To them belong the patriarchs, and of their race, according to the flesh, came the Messiah, your Son Jesus Christ, who is over all things, God blessed forever. Amen.
Their rejection of Christ does not mean your word has failed. Your word never fails. It is people who fail.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
