Pray with us this week:

  • Ask   God   to   heal   the   many    VJF   members  struggling   with   pain,   cancer,   or   the   side  effects   of   chemotherapy,   and   other  physical   and   mental  health issues.
  • Pray   for   our   pastors   as   they   share   the  Word.   Ask   God’s   Spirit   to   move   within  them,   giving   them   boldness   and   clarity   as  they   speak.   Ultimately,   pray   that   God  is  glorified   through   them.
  • Pray   for   God’s   deliverance  in   Ukraine,   His  will   to   be   done   with   regard   to  Iran   and   for  peace  in  Israel   and   among   the   Jewish  people.
  • Pray   for   Ukrainian   families   suffering   from  the   trauma   of   losing   their   homes   and  loved   ones,   and   the   many   missionaries  who   are   tending   to   both   their   spiritual   and  physical   needs   each   day.
  • For our missionaries,  pray for their strength and perseverance to run the race;   that   the   Lord   will   bring  people   across   their   path   who   would  encourage   and   uplift   them.
  • Pray for   God’s provision over their family and ministry;   for His protection against illness,  injury,   and danger.
  • Pray   that   the  joy  of   the   Lord   will   sustain  our   missionaries  in   every   trial   and  setback;   that   the   light   of   God   would  shine   through   them,   lifting   darkness   and  oppression   as   they   share   His   love.
  • Ask the   Lord to make   fertile   ground   and  prepare   hearts   to   receive   the   gospel;   that  He   set   up   divine   appointments   and   open  doors   for   ministry   that   only   He   can   make  possible.
