Pray with Us
Celebrate the Festival of Weeks to the LORD your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the LORD your God has given you. (Deuteronomy 16:10).
Beginning at sundown on May 25, the Jewish people will observe Shavuot, which is also known as the Festival of Weeks, or Pentecost. This joyful festival is two celebrations, really—thanking God for the gift of His Word, the Torah, to Moses, and offering Him our firstfruits, as the Bible tells us to. So, as we join in prayer, let us thank God for the Bible, and let us also offer Him our gifts, talents, and all that He has blessed us with.
- After a bus crash in Haifa, Israel, where 13 people were injured, we praise God for the emergency personnel and their quick action in protecting the lives of those who were impacted. Please pray for not only the brave first responders, but also those that they rescued and especially those 13 people injured. “When they cry out to me, I will hear, for I am compassionate” (Exodus 22:27).
- We remember just a few weeks ago when hundreds over 500 rockets were fired at Israel. But praise God that IFCJ Canada and our supporters were able to provide lifesaving aid to the people of Israel. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).
- As we prepare for summer, let us not forget about the elderly and Holocaust survivors who rely on us for care. Pray that IFCJ Canada will find and rescue all Jewish elderly in need this summer. “They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water” (Isaiah 49:10).
- Together, let us pray for the people of Israel, the work of IFCJ Canada, and for shalom (peace) throughout the entire world. “The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace” (Psalm 29:11).
