Prayer Points

We are headed to Fiche, Ethiopia, for our first Medical Outreach of 2021. We are so excited to get into the field again to serve, minister to and love the Ethiopian people, all in the name of Jesus. We want every expression – in word or deed – to proclaim the Good News, and we know we need your covering of prayer, especially in times like these.

Here’s how you can pray for the Jewish Voice Medical Outreach in Fiche, Ethiopia, starting NOW:

  • Use the daily prayer requests below to pray along with us before, during and after
  • Sign up on our prayer calendar for a specific time during the Fiche Medical Outreach to pray from home. We hope to have every hour covered by our faithful partners so that as we minister, travel, and even sleep, someone – maybe you! – is praying.

Thank you for joining us in this way. Let’s pray!
