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.
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid.”
This past weekend’s horrific mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, have left people mourning for those lost and longing for peace and safety. Please pray to God that He will provide comfort for those who lost loved ones in the shootings, that He will provide swift recovery to those who were injured, and that He will cover North America, Israel, and the world, with his shalom, peace.
- Last week, Fellowship President Yael Eckstein was honoured to be joined on the Ben Gurion Airport tarmac by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Along with our Executive Director of Canada, Elizabeth Shelton, the three welcomed 121 of the newest Israelis — olim (immigrants) from the Canadian-funded Freedom Flight in memory of Rabbi Eckstein. Praise God that His people continue to escape hardship and anti-Semitism to return to their biblical and historic homeland. “I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself” (Exodus 19:4).
- Over the long weekend, a string of shootings took place around the city of Toronto injuring more than 15 people. Thankfully, no one was killed. Please pray for those recovering from their injuries and that the increasing gun violence across our country comes to an end. “Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil, but those who promote peace have joy” (Proverbs 12:20).
- This summer, The Fellowship and our faithful supporters continue to provide assistance to the neediest of Israel’s children, who are especially vulnerable. Pray that we will be able to help all of these precious souls. “You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat’” (Isaiah 25:4).
- Last week, three IDF soldiers were injured when a gunman infiltrated Israel’s border from Gaza. Pray for the recovery of these brave young men, as well as for God’s protection over all who protect and serve the Israeli people. “I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night” (Isaiah 62:6).
