Sabra Jews are those born in the land of Israel. The word is derived from the Hebrew word tzabar, the name of the "prickly pear" cactus. The allusion is to a tenacious, thorny desert plant with a thick hide that conceals a sweet, softer interior. It is a very special name full of meaning to Israelis.
Jewish identity is threatened when a Jew acknowledges Jesus as personal Messiah. Pray that Jews will see their identity enhanced when they follow Jesus, not diminished.
The Gospel is available if the hearts of Israeli Jews are prepared to hear and receive. Pray for prepared hearts.
The Lord is increasingly calling his own people the Jews to Himself. Pray for his followers among these Israeli Jews, that they will be faithful witnesses to their family and friends. Pray they will live lives that fully honor Jesus.
Pray the Lord will give Jewish families understanding and responsive hearts as they hear about the love of Christ. Pray for the Jews, that the veil over their eyes will increasingly be lifted, allowing them to truly see Jesus.
"Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who alone works wonders. And blessed be His glorious name forever; And may the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen, and Amen." Psalm 72:18-19
