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.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
- A series of rockets have been launched at Israel by a Palestinian group in Gaza. This comes after Israel targeted one of the leaders of the Islamic Jihad who directed recent attacks on Israel. Let us join in prayer for God’s hand of protection and comfort over His people, for renewed peace in the region, and for His comfort during this dangerous and stressful time. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels’ (Psalm 122:6-7).
- A toddler in Toronto has tragically died after being struck by an air conditioner that fell from an apartment building in the city’s east end. The little girl’s mother was returning home with her three young children after picking two of them up from school. The two-year-old was in her stroller when the air-conditioning unit fell from the eighth floor of the building and struck her. Paramedics rushed her to the Hospital for Sick Kids in critical condition, but she later died in hospital. Let us pray for the parents and family, that they may be comforted during this tragic time. “The LORD is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18).
- Let us pray for those suffering from the wild fires raging across Australia’s east coast. Let us pray for relief for the severe weather forecasted, for strength for emergency first responders, and for the safety of all citizens. “The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Proverbs 18:10).
