It’s amazing, when you stop to think about it – that we all have the ability at any moment to breathe our heartfelt requests or words of praise directly to the God of the universe. And we don’t just have the ability, we have an open invitation to this sacred dialogue. As you exercise this wonderful privilege this week, please remember these requests for Israel, The Fellowship, and shalom (peace) throughout the world.
As The Fellowship’s Prayer at the Wall campaign kicks off, praise God for the freedom to lift our concerns to Him at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, where pilgrims have offered prayers to Him for centuries. Pray that we will be able to take as many of your prayers to the Western Wall as possible. “May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice” (Psalm 141:2).
Praise God that Niv Nehamia, who was stabbed last week at the Israeli supermarket where he works, recently regained full consciousness. Please continue to pray for his full recovery – and for the protection of all Israelis. “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” (Isaiah 46:4).
Praise God that The Fellowship and our faithful Canadian partners were able to help Egyptian Christians being persecuted for their faith. Pray that we might continue offering lifesaving help to Christians throughout the Middle East who suffer for their beliefs daily. “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).
Praise God that after weeks of violence and unrest, peace has been restored at the Temple Mount. Pray that God will continue to protect His people who visit this holy site that is also a lightning rod of religious and political controversy. “When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them” (Proverbs 16:7).
Please pray for the safety of Rabbi Eckstein and his daughter, Yael, who are travelling extensively this summer to visit Fellowship friends. “The Lord will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore” (Psalm 121:7-8).
Thank you for standing with Israel and the Jewish people.
