“For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.”
Yesterday was the first day of Sukkot, the Jewish holiday also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, when Jews around the world build temporary structures, called sukkot, that they eat and entertain in for the coming week. The sukkot call to mind the temporary dwellings the Israelites lived in while they wandered in the desert for 40 years. They serve as a tangible reminder of God’s provision then and His faithful provision to His children still today. Let us keep His loving provision in perspective as we lift these prayer requests to Him.
Please pray that Jews celebrating Sukkot this week would know God’s abundant grace and His strong hand of protection as they dwell in their sukkot. “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).
Last week UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) passed a resolution stating that the Temple Mount and the Western Wall are solely Muslim holy sites, thus denying Jewish and Christian ties to these sacred sites. Please pray against this troubling international effort to deny the Jewish connection to the land of Israel. “’I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them,’ says the LORD your God” (Amos 9:15).
Next Tuesday is the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, a celebration of the ending and beginning of the annual cycle of Torah readings. As this day approaches, let us thank God for the gift of the Torah and the entirety of His Word. “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever” (Isaiah 40:8).
As the presidential election draws near, pray for God’s guidance and His best outcome for the well-being of the U.S. “Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long” (Psalm 25:4-5).
As the presidential election draws near, pray for God’s guidance and His best outcome for the well-being of the U.S. And whatever the outcome of the election, pray for peace and a renewed unity throughout the country. “Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long” (Psalm 25:4-5).
Praise God for the faithful provision of Fellowship donors who made it possible during the recent High Holy Days for us to give thousands of impoverished Jews food cards or food boxes filled with items needed for the special holiday meals. “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done” (Proverbs 19:17).
