April 2017 Prayer Calendar

“With your unfailing love you lead the people you have redeemed. In your might, you guide them to your sacred home.” (Exodus 15:13 NLT)

 

This year, Passover begins April 10th at sundown. Jewish people around the world will be retelling the story of God’s miraculous deliverance of his Chosen People from enslavement in Egypt, just as they have every year since the Exodus.

At his final meal with his disciples, Yeshua celebrated God’s deliverance together with them, while at the same time showing and telling them that he was the promised One who came to free those held in bondage to sin.

Give thanks that you are counted among his friends – and join us this month in praying that the hearts of many Jewish people will be moved toward faith in the Messiah as they celebrate Passover.

We are grateful for your continued partnership in prayer. Below you’ll find our prayer needs for April.

 

Sunday

John 12-17 contains the most complete account of Yeshua’s last supper with his disciples. Meditate on these chapters as you prepare to remember the final days of his life, and celebrate his resurrection.

 

Monday

Please continue to pray for the 12 Norwegian theology students we are hosting on their four-week study trip to Israel; that through lectures, field trips and encounters with local believers, both Messianic Jews and Arab Christians, the students will be able to get a deep and real picture of the Bible and the current situation in the land of the Bible.

 

Tuesday

Please pray for the Caspari Center staff and their families in Israel and in the U.S. Pray for a fruitful trip to Norway for our C.E.O, Elisabeth. Please lift up the rest of our staff members before the Lord: Alec, Rita, Jennifer, Sheila, Maria, Terho, David, Marja-Liisa, Daniel, Hiromi, Martha and Michelle. Ask for God’s guidance in helping us to select the right ministry workers to join us in the coming months.

 

Wednesday

One of our ministry volunteers is creating a video we’ll be able to use to show the work of this ministry. Please pray for this effort. It is our desire that the video will clearly communicate what God is doing through Caspari Center.

 

Thursday  

Our librarian will be leaving for one year. Our theological lending library is one way in which we serve the body of believers in Israel. Please pray for all aspects of the transition from librarian to the ministry volunteer who will oversee the library in her absence. Pray, too, for our librarian and her family as they prepare to make the transition back to Finland.

 

Friday

Please pray for the upcoming Open Lecture on April 25th, which will be given by Esko Siljanen from Finland. The lecture is entitled “Judeans of Egypt in the Persian period in light of Aramaic documents”. Pray that the lecture would serve God’s purposes in the lives of the listeners who will attend.

 

Saturday

Please pray for a peaceful Passover in Israel and around the world. Pray for the Jewish community as they celebrate Passover. May their hearts be opened to recognize and receive Yeshua as savior.
