For the conversion of Joppa, Israel

March 1, 2015

From Wikipedia:

To the Egyptians, the frog was a symbol of life and fertility, since millions of them were born after the annual inundation of the Nile, which brought fertility to the otherwise barren lands. Consequently, in Egyptian mythology, there began to be a frog-goddess, who represented fertility, referred to by Egyptologists as Heqet (also Heqat, Hekit, Heket etc. . . )
Later, as a fertility goddess, associated explicitly with the last stages of the flooding of the Nile, and so with the germination of corn, she became associated with the final stages of childbirth. This association, which appears to have arisen during the Middle Kingdom, gained her the title She who hastens the birth.

Psalm 127:3 (ESV)
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.

Our Father in heaven,

You are the God of generations, of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  We invite You to build the households of Joppa, Israel. Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.  O Carpenter of Nazareth, build there! Holy Spirit, vivify this people.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You are sovereign over Hequet.  We see through a glass darkly.  If there are any iniquitous remnants on the land in Joppa from the time of  Egyptian rule, we declare that they must bow their knee to Jesus, Son of the Most High God, seated at the right hand of the Father.  Jesus Christ is Lord in Joppa.  Amen.

Psalm 127:1
