“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.”
Reading about recent events in the news, it would be easy to give in to despair. The fact that school shootings and attacks on IDF soldiers happen at all – let alone the fact that they are nothing new – is deeply troubling. But in the face of these difficult ongoing realities, we can have confidence in our all-powerful God. Let us bring our requests to Him today with confidence and gratitude that He hears our every prayer.
Pray for those grieving for the 17 people killed in the school shooting last Wednesday in Parkland, Florida. And please pray for the safety of all students in schools across the country. “He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces” (Isaiah 25:8).
Please pray for the healing of the four Israeli soldiers who were wounded last Saturday when a device exploded at the fence bordering the southern Gaza Strip. Pray too for the two IDF soldiers who were attacked by an angry mob after they accidentally entered a Palestinian town last week. Ask God to keep his strong hand of protection on IDF soldiers bravely defending Israel and her people. “‘But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD” (Jeremiah 30:17).
New laws in Poland are requiring softer language about the role Poland played in the Holocaust, causing much controversy and making Jews in the region nervous. Please pray for their safety and for an accurate accounting of historical events that we cannot forget if we wish to avoid similar atrocities in the future. “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).
Just over a week ago, an Iranian drone veered into Israeli airspace, and Israel retaliated by striking Iranian targets in Syria. Syrian forces responded by shooting down an Israeli F-16. In light of this incident and other escalating violence in the region, please pray for the safety of IDF troops and Israeli civilians in vulnerable areas. “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me” (Psalm 138:7).
Praise God for the 276 people who have made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) so far this year on Fellowship Freedom Flights, thanks to the faithful generosity of our donors. Pray that all these olim (new immigrants) would have a smooth transition to life in Israel, and pray for those who still hope to make aliyah with the Fellowship in the near future. “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).
