Prayer Points

Psalm 32:7
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”

We are in the midst of a holy season — Christians will soon celebrate Easter, while Jews will observe Passover. This time of year assures us that our God protects us, delivers us, shelters us, and hears our prayers.

  • Last week, Israelis voted in their latest election, selecting a new Knesset (Israel’s parliament) and assuring Benjamin Netanyahu a fifth term as Israeli Prime Minister. Please pray that Israel’s leaders will have wisdom and God’s guidance. “Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people” (2 Chronicles 1:10).

  • Recent days have seen relative calm in the Holy Land after weeks of rockets launched into Israel from Gaza. Ask God to grant His protection over all of Israel, especially to those in southern Israel closest to the conflict and all who protect them. “The LORD will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore” (Psalm 121:7-8).

  • Last week, an Israeli spacecraft called Beresheet (meaning “Genesis” in Hebrew) reached the moon, although it crashed during its landing. Despite this, the mission showed the ingenuity and resolve of the Israeli people. Pray to God that He will continue to inspire Israel to be a light among the nations — in both technology and democracy. “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Psalm 19:1).

  • Pray that God, through our generous and faithful friends, will help The Fellowship provide Passover food to thousands of needy Jews in Israel and the former Soviet Union, allowing them to observe this important holiday. “From your bounty, God, you provided for the poor” (Psalm 68:10).

  • Let us continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and for peace throughout the world, especially as we enter this holy season. “The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace” (Psalm 29:11).

Save Lives This Passover

The cries of thousands of impoverished and oppressed Jews will go unheeded this Passover unless we answer them. Help provide special food items and other necessary provisions so these precious Jewish souls can observe Passover with dignity and joy.
