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.
“But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”
As we prepared for the new year, two attacks highlighted the dramatic increase in anti-Semitism we are witnessing in the United States. Attacks against Jews — in America and around the world — are becoming more violent and more frequent. Pray that God will protect His children, and that friends of the Jewish people will stand up against this terrifying trend.
- Please pray for a cessation in the rise of politically charged rhetoric and dramatically raised tensions between Iran and the United States and its allies. Let us pray that all parties will avoid conventional conflict and that diplomatic measures will be taken to reduce tensions in the area. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
- Let us pray for relief in Australia from the drought and unrelenting heat waves that have caused the worst and most widespread fires across the continent. Let us pray for the safety of both its citizens and wildlife during this time, particularly in New South Wales which is the worst-hit state in the country. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)
- Israel continues to hurtle towards her third elections in a year. Pray that God will provide His divine wisdom not just to the Israeli people as they prepare to vote, but to Israel’s leaders as well. “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his” (Job 12:13).
- And in this new year, please pray for God’s continued blessings on The Fellowship’s ministry, and on the Jewish state and her people. “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you” (Genesis 12:3).
