silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not
rest, until its righteousness goes out as
brightness, and her salvation as a burning

establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in
the earth. (Isaiah 62:6-7)

time Messiah, Prince of Peace, will return (Hosea
5:15; Matthew 23:39). Pray that the Lord will continue
to raise up ministries and individuals who are
dedicated to leading Jews to their Messiah. Pray that
the Lord will greatly strengthen those who already
serve in this most central of ministry fields, and

considering doing so. Pray that, as Saul, many
anti-missionaries would see the Light and zealously
proclaim the faith they now seek to destroy (Galatians

the essentials of the faith, Israel and the Jews.
Member Ministries and Individual Members
Pray that the Lord will grant congregation and
ministry leaders wisdom, skill, strength and
protection for the
perfecting of the saints, for the work of the
ministry, for the building up of the body of
Messiah (Ephesians 4:12). Pray that AMC
members who are not members of Messianic congregations
draw strength from the Lord and like-minded believers

forward in their outreach. Pray that all Messianic
congregations, ministries and individuals stand firm
and glorify God in their outreach despite opposition
by individuals and anti-missionary organizations.

filled with the right person.

magazine, the Shofar, for the fulfillment of AMC's
call in His Name. Pray that He will grant Shofar staff
vision, wisdom, skill, strength and spiritual
protection in the carrying out of their duties. Pray
that the Lord will move in members' hearts for the
writing and submission of timeless and timely articles
or for taking on an entire feature, such as our
previous Messianic Home Life page, or book reviews, or
for creating a feature of their own conception. Pray
also that the Lord will raise up a partner or
understudy for the production of the Shofar in case
yours truly kicks the bucket or is whisked away by the
Lord for some other reason. Contact

THE CHURCH AT
Pray for the
establishment of sound doctrine and practice in the
church at large, especially in regards to the
essentials of the faith, Israel and the Jews. Pray
that the Lord would open the eyes of the church to
bless, and not curse, Israel (Genesis 12:3): to
provoke Israel to jealousy (Deuteronomy 32:21; Romans
10:19 and 11:11), to lead Israel to their Messiah, and
to love them as they love themselves (Matthew 19:19)
with special regard to Israel's chosenness among the
nations (Romans 1:16).
