Pray with Us


“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)

The Jewish people recently celebrated Simchat Torah — Hebrew for “rejoicing in the Torah.” It’s the Jewish holiday that marks the end of the annual Torah readings and the beginning of a new reading cycle. So let us rejoice in God’s Word, and lift up our pleas and our thanksgiving to Him.

  • Two weeks ago, we remembered one of the more horrific moments of the darkest chapter in Jewish history that occurred at a ravine in Ukraine called Babi Yar. There, more than 30,000 Jews were murdered by the Nazis. Let us pray that God watches over His people as we know Jews around the world still face terrible anti-Semitism simply because of their faith. “The LORD is my strength and my shield” (Psalm 28:7).

  • For the first time since Israel and Egypt signed a peace deal in 1979, the Egyptian national airline Egyptair will run a regular flight between the two countries. Praise God that we’ve made this step towards peace, and let us pray that one day there will be peace in Jerusalem and across the Middle East! “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs” (Proverbs 10:12).

  • Please pray for the families of the Israeli children and teens who were among those killed and injured in a tragic accident involving a youth group bus near the Sea of Galilee. Please pray with us for God’s swift healing hand over all of the injured, and His hand of comfort for all those mourning loved ones. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).

  • Pray that during the upcoming winter months, IFCJ Canada will have enough resources to help all the elderly and Holocaust survivors as well as families with young children in the former Soviet Union who struggle to eat and heat their homes. Pray that we can reach each and every vulnerable Jewish person this winter season. “Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone” (Psalm 71:9).
