“For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”
We’re just weeks into 2017 and there’s already plenty to pray about. While many things threaten the health and wellbeing of God’s people around the world – truck rammings, hate-filled rallies, freezing temperatures, airport shootings – we can still have hope for the year to come. We might not know what the coming year holds, but we know Who holds the future – and Who holds us all in His faithful, loving hands.
Pray for God’s comfort for the families of the four Israel Defense Forces soldiers who were killed this past weekend when a terrorist rammed a truck into a crowd of soldiers. And pray for the quick, full recovery of the 17 soldiers injured in the attack. “’Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the LORD, who has compassion on you” (Isaiah 54:10).
In the wake of the shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport last Friday, pray for the loved ones of the five people who were killed and for the healing of the eight others who were injured in the attack. And pray for God’s strong hand of protection on airports around the world. “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 for the residents of Whitefish, Montana, where a neo-Nazi group has filed paperwork to stage an armed march to harass the Jewish community on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 16. “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).
As temperatures plummet around the world, pray that The Fellowship’s Winter Warmth initiative will provide lifesaving assistance to as many impoverished elderly as possible. “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done” (Proverbs 19:17).
Pray for a peaceful presidential inauguration next week and for a smooth transition and successful term for the incoming president. “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety” (Psalm 4:8).
