Amidah Blessings 15-17

Hi and shalom!
Today is Friday May 27, and for those living in the US may I express regards to you for a blessed Memorial Day weekend. We have been considering the Daily Amidah the last several posts for the most part, and blessings 10-15 are concerned with prayers for National Israel. We as believers are responsible to pray not only for the peace of Israel but our country as well and the world at large.
These are shared from the site
Blessing Fifteen David's Kingdom
In this blessing, appeal is made for the "branch of David" to arise and bring about Israel's salvation (Yeshua).
We believe that Yeshua of Nazareth is indeed the promised and only legitimate Jewish Messiah.

May the seed of David, Your servant, flourish speedily, and may You exalt in your salvation. For in Your salvation do we hope all the day.
Blessed are You O Lord, who brings forth the horn of Your salvation.

Blessing Sixteen Acceptance of Prayer Kabbalat Tefillah

Hear our voice O Lord our God, and have pity and mercy upon us and accept in mercy our prayer, for You are a God who hears prayers and supplications.
Do not turn us away from before you, empty, for in mercy you hear the prayer of your people Israel.
Blessed are You O Lord, who hears prayer.

Blessing Seventeen Worship Avodah

According to the Rabbis of the Talmud, the Avodah prayer was said by the priests in the Temple after they had offered the sacrifices.

Mishnah Tamid 5:1)

Accept your people O Lord our God, and receive their prayer.
Restore the most holy service of Your house and accept in love the offerings and prayers of Israel.

May it please You always to want to accept the service of your people Israel. May our eyes see You return to Zion in mercy.
Blessed are you O Lord who restores His presence to Zion.

Kevud Yehoveh, his presence be with us..
Your hellos and comments are appreciated.
