Pray with Us
“Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field.” (Exodus 23:16)
This Friday at sundown Jews will celebrate Sukkot, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, when Jewish people around the world build a temporary structure called a sukkah in which they eat, entertain, and even sleep for the coming week. The sukkah calls to mind the temporary dwellings the Israelites lived in while they wandered the desert for 40 years, and serves as a tangible reminder of God’s faithful provision today. Let us be reminded of His sovereignty over our world and our lives as we lift these prayer requests to Him.
- During this holy season, please pray that IFCJ Canada will be able to reach out to all the lonely Jewish elderly and Holocaust survivors who have nowhere else to turn. “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor” (Proverbs 22:9).
- A major fire was started in the Holy Land on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement and the holiest day on the Jewish calendar. Pray that God would continue to protect His people. “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy” (Psalm 94:19).
- As the world has faced many natural disasters in recent months, let us pray that anyone affected finds the help and hope they need during this extremely difficult time. “Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous” (Psalm 112:4).
- Did you know that in recent years, IFCJ Canada has taken 50,000 prayer requests to the Western Wall in Jerusalem? Very soon, IFCJ Canada will be taking more prayers to the Wall, and we’d like to take your prayers, too. “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near” (Isaiah 55:6).
