40 Day of Favor

40 days of favor alignment Aug 18, 2023

During the 40 days leading to the Feast of Tabernacles, it's customary to do two things: 

✅ blow the shofar

✅ read Psalm 27


The Shofar

The ram’s horn (shofar), sounded every day during this season, except Shabbat, reminds us be awakened by God’s Spirit and for our future. The ram's horn always reminds us that-- 

⭐️ "God provides" Jesus for us in the same way He provided a ram for Abraham so he did not need to sacrifice his son Isaac (Genesis 22).

⭐️ It confounds and silences the accusations of the enemy against us, reminding us we are whole in Christ 

⭐️ It calls our spirit-man to attention


Here is a sound clip you can use.


Psalm 27

This song, written by David, highlights God's protection and provision as we seek His presence (text below is the NLT translation, copied from YouVersion.)

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—

so why should I be afraid?

The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,

so why should I tremble?

2 When evil people come to devour me,

when my enemies and foes attack me,

they will stumble and fall.

3 Though a mighty army surrounds me,

my heart will not be afraid.

Even if I am attacked,

I will remain confident.

4 The one thing I ask of the Lord—

the thing I seek most—

is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,

delighting in the Lord’s perfections

and meditating in his Temple.

5 For he will conceal me there when troubles come;

he will hide me in his sanctuary.

He will place me out of reach on a high rock.

6 Then I will hold my head high

above my enemies who surround me.

At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy,

singing and praising the Lord with music.

7 Hear me as I pray, O Lord.

Be merciful and answer me!

8 My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.”

And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”

9 Do not turn your back on me.

Do not reject your servant in anger.

You have always been my helper.

Don’t leave me now; don’t abandon me,

O God of my salvation!

10 Even if my father and mother abandon me,

the Lord will hold me close.

11Teach me how to live, O Lord.

Lead me along the right path,

for my enemies are waiting for me.

12 Do not let me fall into their hands.

For they accuse me of things I’ve never done;

with every breath they threaten me with violence.

13 Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness

while I am here in the land of the living.

14 Wait patiently for the Lord.

Be brave and courageous.

Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.
