December 2017 Prayer Calendar

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
(Psalm 98:1-3)

Psalm 98 portrays God as the victorious warrior, bringing salvation to the whole world, while conquering and judging all who oppose him.

The birth of Yeshua demonstrates God’s faithfulness to the house of Israel, so that all the ends of the earth might see His salvation. For centuries, Israel waited for God to fulfill his promise to send the Savior. When the fullness of the time came, God sent his son, born under the Law, in order to redeem those living under the Law. Because of Yeshua, God has adopted us into his family. The coming of Yeshua as Savior, King and Judge is a cause of great joy for all the earth!

We are grateful for your partnership through intercession and giving in the work of the Caspari Center. Below, you’ll find our prayer needs for December. God’s blessings to you this holiday season!



As you reflect on the birth of Yeshua, what “new song” might you sing or pray to him in response? Give thanks to him for his salvation, his reign, and his righteous judgment.


Join us in giving thanks for God’s vision, provision and protection during the last calendar year. Praise the Lord who is faithful to meet all our needs now and in the future! He has all the resources we need, both spiritual and material.


Please join us as we pray for Martha, our Japanese volunteer, for full recovery from a chronic illness. Would you also join us in asking for God’s provision of ministry-ready volunteers to come alongside us in the next season?


We ask that you lift up David, who is responsible for overseeing the research and writing of our updated edition of our book Facts & Myths about the Messianic Congregations in Israel. Please pray, too, for Jennifer Kaplan, who will be giving the next Open Lecture on December 5th. She will be speaking about the Ethiopian Messianic movement in Israel.


Please pray for the spring projects we are planning including Shabbat School seminars, our Discovering the Jewishness of Jesus course, upcoming Open Lectures, and for the next issue of our Mishkan journal. Specifically, we ask prayer for fresh ideas and new contacts among teachers, lecturers, and authors.


Join us as we seek the Lord’s blessing on the upcoming Hebrew-language Shabbat School seminar in Netanya on December 8th. Please pray for fruitful interactions and connections between the participants and the teachers. Pray, too, that additional congregations will send their teachers to these very important seminars.


Please intercede for all the children in this land, especially those from impoverished families deprived of adequate housing, schooling, food, and clothing. We pray that God will bring his peace and provision to their lives, and make them peacemakers in their generation.
