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.

It’s been an especially devastating hurricane season, with storm after storm destroying homes, wiping out islands, flooding major cities, taking lives, and leaving a wake of damage that will take years to repair. Still, even with the mighty power of nature on vivid display, we know that God is even more powerful. And it is to Him that we cry out in the midst of these storms and any other storms we might be facing – for protection, provision, and His most precious gift of shalom, peace.
Pray for those in the path of Hurricanes Jose and Maria – that they would remain safe, that damage would be minimal, and that God would give them His comfort. “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust’” (Psalm 91:1-2).
Continue to pray for those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. May God’s grace to those who have lost loved ones or livelihoods be abundant, and may the rebuilding process be swift. “‘But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 30:17).
Pray for The Fellowship’s High Holy Days Outreach as we deliver food, medicine, and warmth to thousands of needy Jews. “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done” (Proverbs 19:17).
As world leaders, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, are gathered for the United Nations General Assembly this week in New York, pray for wisdom, godly leadership, and new bonds of peace to be established around the world. “Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you” (Proverbs 4:6).
Praise God that, thanks to our donors’ faithful generosity, The Fellowship recently brought the 10,0000th Jew to Israel on one of our Freedom Flights. “I will bring you from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered—with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath” (Ezekiel 20:34).
Thank you for standing with Israel and the Jewish people.
