Pray with Us

“‘From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,’ says the LORD.” (Isaiah 66:23)

In less than two weeks, Jews around the world will celebrate the holiest time on the Jewish calendar — the High Holy Days. This ten-day observance — which begins at sundown on September 25 with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year — is a time of reflection, repentance, and new beginnings. As the Jewish people prepare for this holy time, let all of us — Jews and Christians alike — unite in prayer, asking God to bless us with wisdom, humility, and compassion, and to heal our broken world.

  • In Israel, children have just begun the new school year. Praise God that, thanks to the compassion and generosity of so many Fellowship supporters, we were able to distribute 10,115 clothing cards for families to purchase new school clothes for children, as well as deliver 730 backpacks filled with materials for school including pencil boxes, pens, markers, scissors, erasers, notebooks, and other essentials to start off the school year to families in need. “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6).

  • With the High Holy Days approaching, pray that Israelis will be protected as they prepare to observe the holiest time of the Jewish year. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).

  • Let us pray that as IFCJ Canada volunteers — in Israel, in war-torn Ukraine, and elsewhere around the world — work to provide High Holy Days food boxes for all those Jewish elderly, families, and children who would otherwise go hungry, we will have enough so that all can celebrate this sacred time with dignity and devotion. “I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging for bread. They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be a blessing” (Psalm 37:25-26).

  • Let us continue to pray together, too, for Israel and her people, and that one day Jerusalem will know shalom, peace, and that peace may one day spread around the entire globe. “The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace” (Psalm 29:11).
