An Introduction to Prayer in Messianic Judaism
Messianic Judaism is heir to a rich heritage of prayer, including both thousands of years of Jewish wisdom and the powerful, soul-stirring teachings of our Master, Yeshua the Messiah.
This book is a brief introduction to prayer in Messianic Judaism. Jewish prayer is unique, both in its fundamental ideas and concepts and in the way it is practically observed. In this book, we examine the concepts of prayer from a Messianic Jewish perspective. Messianic Judaism is a type of Judaism. That means that the historical prayers of the synagogue across the centuries are our prayers. It was our sages, rabbis, poets, and prophets who penned these prayers and entrusted them to us, the Jewish community. Accordingly, this book looks at the aspects of prayer that we hold in common with all of Judaism. We delve into the discussions of the scholars recorded in foundational, ancient Jewish works such as the Talmud and Midrash to see how they conceptualized prayer.
Embarking on a journey into the depths of Messianic Jewish prayer can be daunting, but every journey begins with a small step. This accessible and informative book will welcome you into this rich world of prayer.
