The Fellowship Prayer Team
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.
“Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”
We at The Fellowship continue to mourn the passing of our beloved founder, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, who died in his home in Jerusalem on February 6. As we seek to carry on his work of bridge-building and supporting Israel, we give thanks for his life, and ask that you continue to lift up prayers to God for his family — and for Israel, the Jewish people, and the entire world.
Praise God for the life of Rabbi Eckstein and for the miraculous vision that led him to found The Fellowship. Pray that God will continue to bless The Fellowship and our partners as we carry on the work the Rabbi began 36 years ago. “A faithful person will be richly blessed” (Proverbs 28:20).
Pray for all of the Rabbi’s family and loved ones, that God will comfort them in their time of grief. “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18).
Pray for God’s blessing upon Yael Eckstein, who has taken over the role of President of The Fellowship, a position her father had been preparing her for over the past few years. Pray that she will be granted the wisdom, strength, and vision to lead The Fellowship into the future. “Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments” (Deuteronomy 7:9).
Give thanks to God for our many wonderful partners who have reached out to offer prayers for Rabbi Eckstein’s loved ones, and to celebrate Rabbi Eckstein’s rich legacy of helping. “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity” (Proverbs 17:17).
Pray that all olim (immigrants) coming to Israel will have new hope as they settle in their biblical homeland. “I will bring you from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered—with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm” (Ezekiel 20:34).
