The Fellowship Prayer Team unites Jews and Christians around the world to raise a chorus of prayer to God for the care and support of Israel's people. By appealing to God on behalf of His children, the Prayer Team will make a powerful, positive impact.

Hanukkah ended at sundown last night. This eight-day Jewish holiday celebrates God’s miraculous provision for the Jews during the Second Temple Period and reminds us even today that nothing is too difficult for our mighty God. Let us remember this comforting truth as we lift these requests to Him for Israel, the Jewish people, and the world.
Praise God that our generous supporters enabled us to help thousands of lonely elderly, hungry families, and neglected children during Hanukkah. “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act” (Proverbs 3:27).
Please pray for the swift recovery of the seven Israelis injured in a violent attack Sunday evening near Ofra, Israel – especially a woman who was 30 weeks pregnant. She has since delivered the baby, and both mother and child are still recovering. “’But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD” (Jeremiah 30:17).
Pray for the safety of those who are travelling during the holidays and that God will bring comfort to those who will be alone this season. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).
Praise God that 50 preschoolers in the Israeli town of Rehovot were safely rescued from rising flood waters due to recent torrential rains. “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you” (Psalm 5:11).
As temperatures drop, pray for The Fellowship’s efforts to provide winter heating assistance to impoverished people in need – especially isolated elderly – in Israel and the former Soviet Union. “I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy” (Psalm 140:12).
Thank you for praying with us.
