As the sacred seasons of Hanukkah and Christmas are quickly approaching, what a wonderful opportunity for us all to offer praise to our gracious God for the many ways He blesses us every day. And what a great time for us here at The Fellowship to tell you how much we appreciate your support and prayers for The Fellowship, for Israel and her people, and for shalom (peace) throughout the world.
Pray for the residents of Sutherland Springs, Texas, who are still recovering from the church shooting last week that claimed 26 lives and injured dozens more. Ask God to offer His comfort and healing, as well as His protection over His children wherever they gather to worship. “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).
Pray for victims of Sunday’s devastating earthquake along Iran and Iraq’s shared border. Ask God to comfort those grieving the loss of loved ones, to grant healing to the many who were injured, and to restore order and peace to a region that desperately needs it. “For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you” (Isaiah 41:13).
This week Rabbi Eckstein is in South Korea speaking at an education forum and visiting The Fellowship’s office in Seoul. Pray for the Rabbi’s strength and safety as he travels and connects with friends of Israel around the globe. “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11).
Pray that Fellowship supporters respond to our Giving Tuesday campaign to help raise Winter Relief funds. Let us provide comfort to those suffering in unbearably cold conditions before the icy grip of winter takes full hold. “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done” (Proverbs 19:17).
Praise God that, thanks to our generous donors, The Fellowship is able to help more than 1.5 million people in need around the world every year. “If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday” (Isaiah 58:10).
Thank you for standing with Israel and the Jewish people.
