Isaiah 61 Prayer Song to Set the Captives Free

A group of Israeli believers gathered from all over the Land, together with believers from the nations, for this song of prayer in the city of Sderot, located approximately 1 km from the Gaza border.

Today marks five months of captivity in Gaza for 134 Israeli hostages, of which approximately 100 are presumed to be alive. 

Our prayer to God in heaven is to set the captives free, or in the biblical Hebrew — Likro lishvuyim dror — לקרוא לשבוים דרור.

We invite you to join this prayer song from Isaiah 61:1-3.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because the Lord has anointed me

to preach good news to the poor.

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim freedom for the captives

and release from darkness for the prisoners,

to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor

and the day of vengeance of our God,

to comfort all who mourn,

and console those who mourn in Zion

To give them beauty for ashes,

The oil of joy instead of mourning,

The garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. 

We invite you to pray, to sing, to proclaim, and to comfort according to the words from Isaiah 61.

The site of the prayer song video

On Feb. 26, 2024, in the city of Sderot, located approximately one kilometer from the Gaza border, a group of Israeli believers gathered from all over the Land, together with believers from the nations, to this song of prayer.

The believers gathered on the site of the former police station that was attacked by Hamas terrorists who took the lives of more than thirty policemen and civilians on October 7th. Today, all that remains is a devastated plot of land with twisted rebar protruding from the ground, surrounded by walls still bearing fresh bullet holes, a menorah with memorial candles lit in honor of the victims, and a huge painted mural recalling the tragic events, ensuring that the memory of these horrendous events is never forgotten.

Please take a public stand and sign the “I pray #Isaiah61” petition.
