Next week is Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, when the Holy City celebrates 50 years of being united under Israeli rule. The reunification of the city following the 1967 Six-Day War was a God-breathed miracle that still serves as a reminder that nothing is too difficult for God. Let that truth encourage your heart as you lift these requests to Him for Israel and for shalom, peace, worldwide.
Praise God that Jerusalem has enjoyed five decades of being under Israeli control! “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May those who love you be secure’” (Psalm 122:6).
In the face of the ongoing unrest and economic turmoil in Venezuela, please pray for peace and for God’s provision for all those living without basic necessities. “The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace” (Psalm 29:11).
Pray for The Fellowship’s outreach to impoverished Holocaust survivors in Israel and the former Soviet Union, that we would be able to help them live their final years in comfort and dignity. “Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:32).
An Israeli police officer was stabbed this past weekend in Jerusalem’s Old City. Pray for the police officer’s full recovery and for God’s continued hand of protection on Israel and her people. “Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise” (Jeremiah 17:14).
Praise God for The Fellowship’s faithful partners who are making a lifesaving difference for hundreds of thousands of people around the globe 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).
