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.
May 16, 2018
This weekend is the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which commemorates God giving the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai. Jews and Christians alike consider Scripture foundational, and this holiday is a great reminder that God’s instructions to us are a gift and a blessing. May God’s Word bring instruction and encouragement for whatever you’re facing today as you lift your requests to Him.
Praise God for the life-giving gift of His Word. “For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does” (Psalm 33:4).
Pray for an end to the violent protests being waged on Israel’s border with Gaza. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).
Praise God that The Fellowship’s tour of Israel this week is going well, and pray that God will continue to grant these pilgrims safety and a meaningful trip. “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11).
Join us in prayer as we ask God for His protection over those affected by flooding in Grand Forks, B.C., especially as a second surge of floodwater is expected this week as warm temperatures melt the deep snowpack in the neighbouring mountains. “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you” (Isaiah 43:2).
Please pray for the safety of Canadians as many set out on holidays for the Victoria Day weekend. “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you” (Psalm 5:11).
Thank you for praying with us.
