Prayers and Fast for the Vulnerable of Israel

Enemies surround the people of Israel on every side, with acts of terrorism, hatred, and shouts for their annihilation. And at a time when the threat seems perhaps more intense than ever before, we invite you to “raise your voice like a trumpet” for Israel.

We invite you to join The Fellowship in a time of prayer and provision for Israel and Jews around the world. This special season of prayer and fasting is described in Isaiah 58:6 – 11. In this passage, God revealed the elements of the type of fast that is pleasing to Him (v. 7):

  • Sharing food with the hungry
  • Sheltering the homeless
  • Clothing the naked

As we offer prayer and provision for Israel, we ask you to lift up and care for vulnerable Jews around the world by praying for:

  • Fellowship aliyah efforts as we rescue Jews from countries where they are in danger and bring them to Israel
  • Elderly Jews, including thousands of Holocaust survivors, who continue to face hardship, hunger, and dire poverty, and
  • Hundreds of thousands of Jews who do not have food, a safe place to live, or critical medicines

And when we take compassionate action and care for the Jewish people, the blessing of Isaiah 58 promises:

v. 8: You will be a light in darkness and experience rapid recovery; your righteousness will be proclaimed, and God’s glory will protect you

v. 9: The Lord will manifest His presence in your life

v. 10: Your gloom will lift, producing a better attitude toward life, and

v. 11: God will guide you and satisfy your needs, and you will have divine strength.

Today, we ask that you prayerfully consider a monthly gift of $58 or more to provide much-needed food, clothing, and lifesaving medicines to impoverished Jews in Israel, the former Soviet Union, and around the world.
