Prayer Points: I invite you to pray

September 28, 2022

Join in RETURNing to the Lord in prayer and fasting . . . Last week, here at Jewish Voice Ministries, we held our twice-a-year Week of Prayer and Fasting.

Elul is a season of teshuvah (repentance), which carries the invitation to return and draw near to God, to reflect personally on the state of our own souls and relationships with Him. It ...

September 09, 2022

THIS WEEK’S GLOBAL UPDATE A Note from Jonathan Bernis Shalom, my friend! Much like the Psalmist, I find myself being moved by gratitude right now, even in the midst of terrible anti-Semitism I see on the news – because I know “the LORD is good and His love endures forever.” (Psalm 118:1) And I pray that you, too, will experience the goodness of God and His love in your own walk of faith. Don’t ever forget that YOU can be His expression of goodness and love wherever you are today...

This established a connection and created an opportunity for us to take a full-scale Medical Out...

THIS WEEK’S GLOBAL UPDATE A Note from Jonathan Bernis Shalom, my friend! I’m so grateful for your prayers and support on behalf of this ministry and the Jewish people.

THIS WEEK’S GLOBAL UPDATE A Note from Jonathan Bernis Shalom, my friend!
