April 29, 2022

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. God is in control . . . and thankfully we can cling to His promises and trust that He has a plan, though we may not see it or even understand it. I pray you cling to this promise – as you navigate your own challenges and circumstances. Thank you for your partnership in this ministry. Please remember Jewis...

April 22, 2022

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. The Scriptures promise us that God has good intentions for His people – that no matter what we face, what we are forced to endure or the circumstances around us and the world – we can trust God’s plan. We can believe in the future He’s written. And we can lean on the hope He supplies. This promise feels more...

April 20, 2022

JVMI Outreach in Africa: Transformed from the inside out . . . Liya* thanks God – AND YOU – for the extraordinary work in her heart! Liya heard that Jewish Voice was hosting an Outreach in her area of Ethiopia. And after receiving medical attention, Liya asked for prayer and counseling. She was looking for something – ANYTHING – that would loosen the squeeze she felt around life. Her husband had left her. Her children were depending on her. Liya was barely making it – performing backbreaki...

Prayer Points: We are in a time of prayer and fasting

April 13, 2022

We are in a time of prayer and fasting at Jewish Voice and would like to ask you to join us. Twice a year, we come together to focus on the Lord for a week. We worship, pray, intercede and fast – as a means of setting aside distractions so we can know Him better and hear Him clearly. We pray for God’s wisdom, guidance and protection. We thank Him for all He has done in the past and is doing now, and we ask Him for clarity and favor in the things He will do in the future. And we pray for yo...

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” Psalm 122:6 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. As a partner of Jewish Voice who loves the Gospel and the Jewish people, I’m sure you’ve been watching the news about the continuing situation in Ukraine and the current violence that’s been happening in Israel. Just a few days ago, my team and I walked across the Polish border into Ukraine to meet with our partners on the ground. As we walked, the reality of everything we’ve been watching on the news came crash...

Passover and Good Friday Converge

April 06, 2022

It happens more than you’d think. This year, Passover and Good Friday align on the calendar. Both are Friday, April 15, 2022. In the last 100 years, Passover and Good Friday have fallen on the same Friday 34 times. It’s only fitting, after all, because the very first Good Friday – the one 2,000 years ago when Jesus died – was Passover. Coincidence? Not one bit. It might seem like chance when Passover and Good Friday occur the same day, but Jesus’ death on Passover was a pre-ordained, orchestr...

U.N. report accuses Israel of apartheid

April 01, 2022

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May those who love you be secure.” Psalm 122:6 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. With our world rife with animosity and anger as the war in Ukraine continues – the outcome unknown at best – peace can seem so far away. And even unreachable. That’s why God commands us in the Scriptures to pray. This week, I encourage you to continue to pray for peace in Ukraine. To pray for the peace of Jerusalem. And I encourage you to also pray for peace in your o...

Israel mediating potential ceasefire in Ukraine

March 24, 2022

“From the LORD comes deliverance. May Your blessing be on Your people.” Psalm 3:8 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. I’m holding on to this truth from the Scriptures as we continue to pray and respond to the crisis in Ukraine – that God will bring deliverance. And I pray it over you as well, in whatever you’re facing today, that you’ll experience the power and presence of the Lord as the Deliverer of His people. There’s no greater promise we have from God – which was ultimately reali...
