“Celebrate the Festival of Weeks to the LORD your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the LORD your God has given you.”
This past weekend, the Jewish people observed Shavuot, which is also known as the Festival of Weeks, or Pentecost. This joyful festival is two celebrations, really — thanking God for the gift of His Word, the Torah, to Moses, and offering Him our firstfruits, as the Bible tells us to. So, as we join in prayer, let us thank God for the Bible, and let us also offer Him our gifts, talents, and all that He has blessed us with.
- Last week, Nechama Rivlin, wife of Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, passed away at the age of 73 after a longtime pulmonary illness. Mrs. Rivlin was not only Israel’s first lady, but had served the Holy Land during her career as a scientist. Please pray for President Rivlin and his family as they mourn the loss of this incredible woman. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).
- Continue to pray for those in Israel who were victims of the recent fires that spread across the Holy Land. These include the residents of Moshav Mevo Modiim, a village in Israel that was completely destroyed. Pray that lives and livelihoods will be restored and homes rebuilt. And pray for The Fellowship’s continued efforts to help Israelis affected by this tragedy. “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail” (Lamentations 3:22).
- Despite growing bonds of love and friendship between Christians and Jews, anti-Semitic hatred continues to grow around the world. Pray that God will not only protect the Jewish people, but will compel those driven by anti-Semitism to spread love, instead of hatred. “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs” (Proverbs 10:12).
- While The Fellowship provides care all year round to elderly in Israel and across the globe — including to many Holocaust survivors — this month we are focusing on helping this vulnerable population. Pray that every need will be met, this month and going forward. “Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone” (Psalm 71:9).
Give Hope to Holocaust Survivors
You can act to help provide food, medicine, shelter, and other necessities to the thousands of elderly and impoverished Holocaust survivors who are all alone and unable to care for themselves.
