Pray with Us
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. (Isaiah 49:16)
We’re just weeks into 2022 and there’s already plenty to pray about. From this weekend’s hostage situation during a Saturday service at a Texas synagogue, to the pandemic’s Omicron variant quickly spreading, all we can do is ask God to help guide us and keep us safe. We might not know what the coming year holds, but we do know Who holds the future — and Who holds us all in His faithful, loving hands.
- We will celebrate International Holocaust Remembrance Day in just over a week. Let’s pray that IFCJ Canada is able to reach all elderly Jews and Holocaust survivors who are still extremely vulnerable to the ongoing pandemic. Pray that we can provide lifesaving food boxes and care to these precious people in need. “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 the hostages that were being held in a Texas synagogue this weekend escaped safely. But let us pray for all of God’s people that they stay safe from terror, especially while praying in their places of worship. “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3).
- As we honoured the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this past Monday, let us continue to take to heart his message of love, hope, and justice for a kinder and more understanding world. “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5:24).
- A harsh winter storm slammed Ontario this weekend; please pray for all those affected and that they find God’s comfort. “Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD” (Psalm 31:24).
