June 2017 Prayer Calendar

British missionary Oswald Chambers lived at the turn of the last century, and is best known today around the world for the devotional My Utmost for His Highest. During his short life, he ministered in relative obscurity. He was deeply devoted to prayer, and said, “Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.”

We endeavor to undergird every aspect of this ministry with prayer. Prayer indeed is the foundation of everything else we do. Please know that we come to you each month with these prayer requests, believing that you are joining us in this “greater work”.

We are grateful for your continued partnership in prayer for this ministry. Below, you’ll find our June prayer needs and praises.



Ephesians 6:18 says, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Recognize that you are not merely presenting a list of wishes to your heavenly Father. Prayer is communion with him. Each time you pray, you are growing in your relationship with him. As you intercede for others, you are participating in his work in the world. What a privilege!



Join us in giving thanks to God for the 20th anniversary of the national Shabbat School Seminar. The celebration was held in Netanya. We had approximately 90 participants from 28 different congregations. God has been faithful: since 2004, the national seminars have been held twice a year, and in 2010, a Russian language seminar was added to our yearly offerings.



We thank the Lord for all the organizations and churches that support us. Without them this work would not exist. Join us in praying for the Caspari Partners’ Council and International Board meeting that will take place here in Jerusalem June 11th–13th. Please join us in seeking God for guidance, wisdom, and vision as they gather to make decisions concerning the Caspari’s future.


Please pray for our staff and their families, some of whom are travelling in and out of Israel this summer: Elisabeth, Alec, Rita, Jennifer, Sheila, Terho, Maria, David, Marja-Liisa, Daniel, Hiromi, Martha, Olan, and Michelle. Maria and Terho with family will be leaving this month for a year, and Daniel and Olan return to Norway. Please pray for those transitioning to new ministry assignments in their lives.



Pray for our Open Lecture June 12th. Lift up our lecturer Chad Foster before the Lord. The audience for these lectures typically comes from a cross-section of local leaders, students, and people curious about learning more about the faith. Please pray that the lectures would continue to serve God’s purposes in the lives of listeners and that the name of Jesus would be glorified.



Please pray for Olan as he continues to work with the new library system. We would also ask you to pray for the Caspari Center’s participation and making new connections at the FIRM-conference (Fellowship of Israel-Related Ministries) June 13-15.



Please believe with us for God’s protection for Israel and for Christians across the Middle East. Pray that Jerusalem and Israel will continue to remain united. Pray, too, that God will open a fountain of salvation over the Jews, the Arabs, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Israel and the Middle East per Zechariah 13.
