The Fellowship Prayer Team unites Jews and Christians around the world to raise a chorus of prayer to God for the care and support of Israel's people. By appealing to God on behalf of His children, the Prayer Team will make a powerful, positive impact.

Next week holy seasons begin for both Christians and Jews, with Good Friday, the start of Passover, and Easter. These holy days offer us all a needed reminder that we worship a miracle-working God who rescues and redeems. In the face of our fractured world and our personal trials, may these truths encourage and embolden us to bring our every concern to our mighty God.
Praise God for The Fellowship’s faithful donors, who allow us to do lifesaving work around the world every day. “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done” (Proverbs 19:17).
Pray that The Fellowship will be able to reach as many Jews in need as possible this Passover to provide them with food, including the special foods they need to celebrate the holiday according to biblical tradition. “Then Moses said to the people, ‘Commemorate this day, the day you came out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery, because the Lord brought you out of it with a mighty hand’” (Exodus 13:3).
In the West Bank last Friday, a car-ramming attack killed two young IDF soldiers and left two others seriously injured. Pray for those grieving the loss of loved ones and for the swift recovery of those who were hurt. “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).
This past Sunday, an extremist stabbed to death Adiel Kolman, a 32-year-old father of four, in Jerusalem’s Old City. Pray for his family as they mourn their loss, and pray for the safety of all Israeli citizens. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
