Acts of violence around the world seem to be occurring at an increasing rate. As people of faith, we know our God is bigger and more powerful than those whose goal is destruction and death. Let us cling to our sovereign God and the certain hope He offers us as we lift these requests in prayer.
On June 3, three people rammed a van into a crowd of pedestrians in London and then went on a stabbing spree. All told, 8 people were killed and another 48 were injured. Pray for those grieving these unthinkable losses and for the recovery of those wounded. “Say to those with fearful hearts, ‘Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you’” (Isaiah 35:4).
An underground tunnel was recently discovered under a school run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) that was likely intended to carry out acts of violence. Please pray that God continues to protect the people of Israel. “I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed” (Psalm 57:1).
Give thanks to God for His blessings upon this vital ministry, for the most recent outpouring of response from caring Canadian partners to feed the hungry through our network of soup kitchens in Israel and to help the elderly in the former Soviet Union. “I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds” (Psalm 9:1).
Pray for the smooth transition of the brand-new Israelis who will be arriving in the Holy Land at the end of this month on IFCJ Canada’s Fellowship Freedom Flight from Ukraine. “Therefore say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will gather you from the nations and bring you back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you back the land of Israel again’” (Ezekiel 11:17).
Thank you for standing with Israel and the Jewish people.
