The Fellowship Prayer Team unites 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, the Prayer Team will make a powerful, positive impact.
August 21, 2018
God is good. When you’re happy and when you’re despondent. When you have money to burn and when you’re living paycheque to paycheque. When you are loved and when you are lonely. Regardless of our circumstances, our God is good. And He is always listening for our voice. As you pray to Him this week, please remember these praises and requests for Israel, the Jewish people, and the world.
Please pray for the countless people endangered by the floods in India and the wildfires in British Columbia and California. Ask God to rescue those in peril, heal those who have been injured, protect those searching and rescuing, and comfort those who have lost their homes and/or loved ones. “I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” (Isaiah 46:4).
Fire kites and balloons sent from Gaza continue to destroy acres of land in Israel and leave the residents in peril. Pray that God would protect His people and comfort those living with the daily reality of extremism. “The LORD will keep you from all harm he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore” (Psalm 121:7-8).
With the High Holy Days less than a month away, pray that The Fellowship will be able to provide food to as many people in need as possible during this most sacred time on the Jewish calendar. “For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help” (Psalm 72:12).
As the new school year is upon us, pray for The Fellowship’s many projects that provide at-risk students throughout Israel and the former Soviet Union with after-school clubs, food, clothing, school supplies, and transportation. “But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish” (Psalm 9:18).
Praise God that there were no injuries when an Israeli policeman was attacked by a man wielding a knife in Jerusalem’s Old City on Friday and an IDF patrol was fired upon by a gunman near the northern Gaza Strip yesterday. Ask God to protect those on the frontlines of keeping Israel and her people safe. “The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Proverbs 18:10).
Thank you for praying with us.
