Weekend of Prayer - Resources

A Historic Prayer Partnership

Thank you for committing your congregation to a time of prayer for Israel and the release of the hostages. This is truly an unprecedented moment. Never before have Jewish and Christian communities worldwide come together in a prayer movement spanning across multiple Christian and Jewish denominations and networks – all “For Zion’s Sake.”


During your regularly scheduled services over the weekend of November 17-19 lead your congregation in prayer for Israel and the release of the hostages still held captive by Hamas. Synagogues pray “A Prayer for Israel” every Sabbath and on this weekend, they will do so knowing that churches are joining them with prayer during their own services. Please reach out to your local synagogues to let them know that you are with them and you are praying.
