October 2017 Prayer Calendar

We are grateful for your faithful continued monthly prayer for this ministry and for the Land of Israel. You will not know this side of heaven how your intercession has supported and strengthened us in our work of making disciples in Israel and beyond (Matthew 28:19-20).

We are heartened by efforts like the Day of Prayer for Jerusalem. This yearly event has been taking place since 2002. Visit http://www.daytopray.org to learn more. The Day of Prayer for Jerusalem has drawn the support of a wide cross-section of Christian leaders and has involved numerous churches in praying for the peace of Jerusalem. The Caspari Center is not connected in any way with the organization sponsoring this event, but we are grateful for the growing movement to energize believers worldwide to pray for safety and spiritual renewal in Jerusalem and the Land of Israel:

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.’” (Psalm 122:6-7)

Thank you for partnering with the Caspari Center in prayer throughout this month. Below you’ll find our prayer calendar for October.

 

Sunday

Join millions of believers around the world who are praying for the peace of Jerusalem the first Sunday of every October. This prayer event has quickly become the largest Israel-focused intercession event in history. You can visit http://www.daytopray.org to download a prayer guide for the day suitable for individual or congregational use.

 

Monday

Please lift up the Caspari staff members and their families yet again up to the Lord. Our staff resources are somewhat limited at the moment, and we need stamina from the Lord. Please join us, too, in praying that the Lord will provide the right long-term staff members and volunteers in the future, according to our needs. May we all grow in our relationship of trust and dependence with our God.

 

Tuesday

Please pray for the Caspari Center board meetings, which will take place at the beginning of November. Pray for God’s wisdom for the board members as they make decisions which guide our ministry. Funding the vision is an essential part of the agenda, and we would appreciate your prayers in seeking the Lord’s leading in our fundraising strategy, as well.

 

Wednesday

We are presently preparing the December issue of Mishkan, the bi-annual academic journal that focuses on the Good News and the Jewish people. Join us in blessing those who give of their time and theological expertise to write articles for this issue of Miskhan, including Antti Laato, Chad Foster, Yoel Ben David, Kurt Larsen, and Rich Robinson.

 

Thursday

We request prayer for our fall lecturers. The upcoming Open Lectures will take place November 14th and December 5th, with Father Antoine Levy from Finland and Jennifer Kaplan from Israel, respectively. These lectures draw a diverse audience which includes visiting scholars and interested locals. Please pray that God will use the content of these lectures for his glory in the lives of all who attend.

 

Friday

We are preparing for upcoming Shabbat School Seminars. Join us in praying that we will help develop excellence and passion among the teachers who will be attending these seminars. They are the ones on the front lines, passing on the faith to the next generation, and we aim to support them. We also pray that we will see new Shabbat School teachers find their way to the seminars.

 

Saturday  

Please intercede for the Ethiopian Jewry in Israel. Pray for those who seek to educate, equip and empower a new generation of Ethiopian Jews in Israel through various kinds of strategic projects and humanitarian aid. Unemployment and underemployment in this community remains a challenge. Please pray that they will find their rightful place in Israeli society and that many would find new life in Yeshua.
