“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
A spate of attacks and uncovered plots around the U.S. and Israel in the past week have been deeply disturbing. Regular citizens going about their daily routines have been injured, and countless others now live with the fear of the next attack. Thankfully we have a much-needed reminder of God’s sovereignty in the upcoming High Holy Days, which include Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). At these most sacred of the Jewish holidays, we are reminded that God is still in control. Let us cling to that truth as we pray over these world events and the other issues we’re facing in our individual lives.
Israel is experiencing a spike in terror attacks around the country, with seven stabbings and car rammings in the past week. Please pray for healing for those injured, for protection for all Israelis, and for an end to this string of senseless attacks. “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).
In the wake of the bombing in a New York City neighborhood Saturday that injured 29, and the discovery of pipe bombs near a train station and a Marine Corps charity run in New Jersey on Sunday, pray for healing and comfort of those impacted and for protection of Americans going about their daily lives. “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).
A stabbing at a Minnesota mall on Saturday left nine people injured. Pray for their speedy recovery, for wisdom for officials investigating the attack, and for peace in this community. “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” (Psalm 5:11).
Please continue to pray for former Israeli president and prime minister Shimon Peres, who is still recovering from the massive stroke he suffered last week. Peres, 93, is currently listed in serious but stable condition. “The LORD protects and preserves them – they are counted among the blessed in the land – he does not give them over to the desire of their foes. The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness” (Psalm 41:2-3).
The Fellowship is distributing food boxes and food vouchers to impoverished Jews in Israel and the former Soviet Union in advance of the upcoming High Holy Days. Pray that we will reach all those who need our help so that they may truly celebrate this most sacred season on the Jewish calendar according to biblical tradition. “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor” (Proverbs 22:9).
