Song of Songs 2:11-12
“See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.”
Spring has officially begun! This start of a new season and a time of new growth is a tangible reminder of the hope that always follows life’s “winters.” May our God who can renew and redeem anything bless you richly with joy as you lift your requests – and the ones below – to Him.
Praise God that last Friday the Lions of the North, an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) air defense battery and Fellowship-adopted IDF battalion, downed a Syrian missile aimed at an IDF aircraft. “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” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
Pray that The Fellowship will be able to help all the impoverished Jewish elderly and families who come to us for food assistance this Passover holiday – that we would be able to help as many people as possible celebrate this holy season according to biblical instruction. “I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it” (Psalm 81:10).
Both Rabbi Eckstein and his daughter Yael are traveling to the U.S. in the coming days. Pray for their safe travels and for effective meetings with Fellowship friends and staff while they’re in the States. “The LORD will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore” (Psalm 121:8).
As the Shin Bet has warned of Hamas attacks ahead of the upcoming Passover holiday, please pray for God’s mighty protection on the land of Israel. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
