You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
It’s the holiday season, Fellowship friends! Those of us in the U.S. prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with our loved ones, and soon our Christian friends will prepare to celebrate Christmas, as the Jewish people prepare to celebrate Hanukkah, a time of light and miracles. And while we ask that God take away all the pain, anguish, heartache, and violence that is happening in our world, we also want to remember all of His blessings and light that shine through the darkness. There is a lot to feel thankful for as we join in prayer this week, so let us remember God’s love, strength, and guidance that shine through each of us.
- Pray for the people of Israel as terror has once again gripped the Holy Land. Last week, a terrorist unleashed an attack in the West Bank, killing three and wounding three more. “The LORD is my strength and my shield” (Psalm 28:7).
- Five died and more than a dozen were injured in a weekend shooting in Colorado. Pray for God’s comfort over families who lost their loved ones and pray for an end to this senseless violence. “My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—from violent people you save me” (2 Samuel 22:3).
- As the Jewish people prepare for the special holiday of Hanukkah — a time when Jews remember the miracles that occurred in biblical times, as well as the miracles that happen today — let us pray that God continues to shine His light in the darkness, and that The Fellowship is able to bring light and warmth to every impoverished Jewish person who needs us this holy season. “The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple” (Psalm 119:130).
- Praise God that He continues to bless The Fellowship’s ministry even during such a year of uncertainty and pain. Pray that He continues to help us reach out to the most vulnerable Jews who have nowhere else to turn. “LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress” (Isaiah 33:2).
