Prayer Alert: Pray for Peace in Israel

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I greet you in the Name of Christ Jesus our Lord and only Savior. I am writing to ask you to pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem. As you have probably heard on the news, Israel was attacked by Hamas today and they are now at war. We have numerous brothers and sisters there and currently we have numerous folks on pilgrimages. Below is a summary on how to pray from Christ Church Jerusalem and CMJ.

In Christ,


From CMJ: Today, more than ever, the land of Israel and its people need your prayers! Today is a holy day in Israel and this morning, Hamas militants from Gaza launched a massive assault in southern Israel.

In the last 7 hours over 3200 rockets have been fired into Israeli villages and cities. Tragically, the Iron Dome defense system is being overwhelmed, and reports of casualties are emerging.

The head of the Israeli Police Force confirmed in a public statement that there are 21 locations within Israel, where security forces are clashing with Hamas militants. The are dozens of unconfirmed reports of kidnappings. Israeli media are reporting that at least three villages in southern Israel are under Hamas control.

Surgical wings in many Israeli hospitals are completely full. Israel emergency services have alerted the public to a drastic shortage of blood in blood banks. Confirmed reports of over 300 wounded so far since 7 a.m. this morning. 20 deaths have been confirmed.

The IDF has begun its official response with reports of airstrikes in the Gaza Strip.

Please pray:

  • Pray for wisdom for the leadership of Israel.
  • Pray for strength for the medical services.
  • Pray for God’s sovereignty and comforting presence to stretch out over southern Israel and the Gaza Strip.
  • Pray for mercy for those that have been taken hostage.
  • Pray for the people of Gaza that they would come to know the Prince of peace, Jesus Christ.

Above all, pray for peace. Pray for swords to be beaten into plowshares. Pray that the people of this region will seek His face. Pray for the Lord’s healing over this Land, a place so dear to his heart.

Bishop Fanuel Magangani, in partnership with TRUE AWAKENING, feeds children at four schools in the Diocese of Northern Malawi (DNM). These village schools have between 600-700 students enrolled in grades 1-8. Many of the students live in homes without electricity and many walk long distances to school. Along with the standard curriculum, the schools teach Bible stories to the students from all backgrounds – all denominations, Muslim, atheist, etc.

Through this feeding program the children are fed a nutritious porridge each day. The goal is to keep students attending school through 8th grade by helping with their hunger. The MY LUNCH PROGRAM will help the DNM continue to feed the students. Education is the path out of poverty and food is the key to increasing education. MY LUNCH PROGRAM provides opportunities for our churches to come alongside the Church in Malawi as they work to reduce poverty and improve levels of education.

Malawi is the eighth poorest country in the world and the Diocese of Northern Malawi is in the most rural part of the country. Visitors are often greeted in the villages with singing and dancing! What a blessing it is to be in relationship with the church there. For more information on the Diocese of Northern Malawi and our companion relationship, churches might enjoy our video, “Malawi Then and Now”. Click Here for the Video.

Participating in Global Mission on any level transforms our perspective of God and His plan for the nations. Seeing God at work in the world inspires and reminds us of our purpose and role in both the Great Commission and the Great Commandment given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.

The World Mission Committee is appointed to provide resources to the congregations of the Diocese so that each church can receive the blessings participation in mission can bring.

The goal has always been for every church in the Diocese to participate in Global Mission in some way. Participation can be through prayer, financial support, or sending and receiving missionaries.

As a Diocese, we continue to focus on strategic partnerships and relationships in order to provide congregations with opportunities for engagement.

The Diocese seeks to support its neighbors in Mexico, its friends in Malawi; and now it is reaching towards countries where Christianity is a small minority, by beginning to partner in prayer with the Diocese of Mandalay in Myanmar.

I encourage every congregation to find ways to participate. Look through the pages of this Web site to see what God has already done and see where he may be calling you to join him.

World Missions Committee
Diocesan Report, 2023

The World Missions Committee (WMC) strives to be a catalyst for churches of the Diocese to take an active part in the spread of the Gospel across the barriers of language, distance, and culture. Our goal is to facilitate our Companion Diocese relationships with Northern Malawi, Northern Mexico, and the Myanmar Diocese of Mandalay, as charged by our diocese at Convention. Furthermore, our purpose is to help facilitate mission education and training for individuals and churches in their response to the Great Commission.

The past two years have been a struggle to adapt to the changes brought on by the COVID Pandemic. However, we are beginning to adjust and have begun a time of vision building. Our desire to continue to strengthen our commitments to La Gran Familia, The Diocese of Northern Malawi, and the Diocese of Mandalay form a significant part of that vision.

The committee has also been working on how to support our congregations’ knowledge of mission activities and mission work to encourage prayer support for our people. Included in this task is the regular e-blast calling the diocese to prayer. If you are not part of this e-blast feed and desire to be included, please contact Lollie Twyman at lollie@lallierart.com. The diocesan office has also begun to use the Global South Prayer Cycle to include in our daily prayers the dioceses and provinces that are a part of the Global South Partnership.
