When 200 Jewish refugees from Russia arrive unexpectedly at the St. Paul train depot, local residents help out by housing them in tents on the city’s west side. Many of the new Minnesotans settle there permanently.*

Thank you, Lord, that our state was a place of peace for Russian Jews. Thank you that they found help through direct relationships with local residents. Thank you for all who chose to ‘love their neighbor’, and remember that they, too, were once strangers and aliens in this place.
Lord, I’m in awe whenever I hear or read stories of Jews. Why? You are perpetually faithful to your covenant with Abraham and his generations! No tragedy of history has or can erase that name You have assigned; “My People”.

I want to bless the Russian Jews of Minnesota, their generations, and dwellings in the name of Jesus! May they fulfill their purpose in You. May they be strong, like David, in the power of Your might. May any fearful or cynical hearts in their numbers have a new revelation of Your faithfulness. “The Lord answered Moses, “is the Lord’s arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you.” Numbers 11:23

Mount Zion Congregation 1857  

Unknown-8

Mount Zion Hebrew Congregation, the first Jewish organization in Minnesota, is formed in St. Paul.*

Lord, thank you for the congregation of Mount Zion, and the Jewish heritage of Minnesota. Will You forgive any judgments made towards Mount Zion, and any Jewish people by citizens or entities representing our state? Will You forgive any counter-judgments of this congregation towards its neighbors? I want to announce the forgiveness of the Lord Jesus Christ to all inheritors of these bitter root judgments both past and present. May we receive Your blessings of chesed in all present and future generations!

“If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy.” Psalms 137:5,6 NIV
