Psalm 34:10
“Those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.”

This weekend marks the beginning of Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish holiday that celebrates God’s provision of two miracles. The first miracle was the military victory of a small band of Jews over a king who was trying to impose paganism on them. The second was God’s provision of enough oil to keep the flame lit in the Temple, according to Jewish tradition. Both miracles remind us – Jews and Christians alike – that we serve a God who provides for our every need. As we enter this holiday season – and consider the requests below and in our own lives – let us find comfort in that everlasting truth.

  • Let us thank God for His miraculous provision that inspired Hanukkah and continues to this very day. “The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing” (Psalm 23:1).

  • As temperatures drop and sacred holiday seasons approach, pray for The Fellowship’s many efforts to help impoverished people in need – especially isolated elderly – in Israel and the former Soviet Union. “I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor I will satisfy with food” (Psalm 132:15).

  • After Iranian President Rouhani called Israel “a cancerous tumor” this past weekend, pray that God will keep His people safe and the world will see this hateful prejudice for what it is. “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 quick and complete recovery of the three Israeli soldiers who were injured in a car-ramming attack by a Palestinian terrorist yesterday. “Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise” (Jeremiah 17:14).

  • In the past month, Hamas terrorists have launched more than 450 rockets into Israel. Amidst threats of further violence, pray for God’s strong hand of protection on Israel and her people. “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).
