“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
No matter what you are facing today, God is already aware of it and sovereign over it. May this truth bring you comfort as you lift your own needs to Him – as well as the requests below for The Fellowship, Israel, and shalom (peace) the world over.
Yesterday a terrorist carried out a stabbing and car-ramming attack near Jerusalem that injured an Israel Defense Forces soldier. Pray for the soldier’s quick recovery and for God’s protection on His beloved people. “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).
This summer, The Fellowship is helping a group of persecuted Coptic Christians in Egypt. Pray for God’s hand of protection on persecuted Christians throughout the Middle East, and for The Fellowship’s efforts to bless this oppressed community. “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy” (Proverbs 31:8-9).
Last Friday the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) passed a resolution stating that the Cave of the Patriarchs (where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are buried) is a “Palestinian heritage site” that is “endangered” by Israel. Please pray that this biblically significant site will be maintained and remain accessible, and that UNESCO’s persistent anti-Israel efforts would cease. “His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite, the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites. There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah” (Genesis 25:9-10).
The Fellowship is in the middle of a summer initiative to help 2,300 Jews make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) from 15 different countries. Thank God that these Fellowship Freedom Flights are going smoothly so far, and pray that these olim (new immigrants) will transition well to their new home. “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 and with outpoured wrath” (Ezekiel 20:34).
Praise God for Yael Eckstein’s recent safe and successful trip to Morocco, where she helped distribute food boxes to needy communities. Pray for the shrinking Jewish community in Morocco and that The Fellowship will be able to offer them the assistance they need. “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor” (Proverbs 22:9).
Rabbi Eckstein, Yael, and The Fellowship invite you on the journey of a lifetime to the Holy Land this December 4-11. Join us and experience the history and the people of Israel!
