The Fellowship's Prayer Points
Our bi-weekly Prayer Points unite 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, your prayers will make a powerful, positive impact.
“Celebrate this as a festival to the LORD…This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come…so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in temporary shelters when I brought them out of Egypt.”
Yesterday was the first day of Sukkot, the Jewish holiday also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, when Jews around the world build temporary structures, called sukkot, where they eat, entertain, and even sleep for the coming week. The sukkot call to mind the temporary dwellings the Israelites lived in while they wandered in the desert for 40 years, and serve as a tangible reminder of God’s faithful provision today. Let us be reminded of his sovereignty over our world and our lives as we lift these prayer requests to Him.
- Nearly 21,000 Manitoba homes and businesses remain without power in the wake of an early snowstorm that the province's Crown energy utility said left an unprecedented amount of damage to transmission lines, towers, and more, and will take days to repair. We pray everyone remains safe and warm during this period. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
- We pray for the citizens in northern Syria who have been under attack from Turkish forces this past week. Now in its seventh day, Turkey’s offensive has sowed fear and chaos in this already war-weary region. We pray for a ceasefire and for stability in the region. “Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14).
- Praise God that The Fellowship’s High Holy Days food outreach was able to provide nourishment and hope to thousands of impoverished Jews in Israel, the former Soviet Union, and elsewhere during this holiest of seasons. “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor” (Proverbs 22:9).
