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.
“‘On the first day of the seventh month hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. It is a day for you to sound the trumpets’” - Numbers 29:1
Rosh Hashanah starts this week. This holiday isn’t just the Jewish New Year; it also ushers in the High Holy Days, which ends with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) ten days later. This is the holiest time in the Jewish calendar, and a season for introspection and reconciliation. May we all pause in the coming weeks to examine our hearts and seek the face of our gracious God. And in our times of prayer, let us remember these requests for Israel, her people, and the world.
- The High Holy Days are here! Pray for the many Fellowship projects providing help to the needy this Rosh Hashanah — from clothing for needy children to food for impoverished families. May we reach all who need help these High Holy Days. “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow” (Isaiah 1:17).
- Deadly wildfires on the west coast, both in Canada but particularly in the US, have already burned over 4.6 million acres, damaging the landscape and causing dangerous air quality for the people living in the area. Please pray for these communities who now must stay indoors or evacuate for safety until these fires clear. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me” (Psalm 23:4).
- We haven’t seen a peace agreement between Israel and another country in the Middle East for over two decades. Praise God for the new peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Israel. Pray that God continues to watch over and protect His people and that one day peace will be achieved. “All your children will be taught by the LORD, and great will be their peace” (Isaiah 54:13).
- We are here to pray for you. Please submit your prayer requests here and we will take them before God. “The LORD is my strength and my shield” (Psalm 28:7).
