Prayer

Raising up informed prayer and intercession are the primary activities of IFI. Through prayer, the hand of the Lord can be moved, and the course of nations altered. Would you join with us?

Prayer Points

These Prayer Points are the prayers which are prayed through at the "Intercessors For Israel" Friday Prayer Meetings. They are also sent out weekly via email.

    1. We began by looking at Shabbat's prophetic portion - Isaiah 54:11-55:5

    2. Israel's security cabinet is starting to bicker - and in the current Gaza war situation, this is not right. Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ya'alon are leading the war in the way that they see as best. While they have given opportunity for all other members to give input, ultimately they are responsible. Some think they are not being aggressive enough, others that they are not doing this, or that, or whatever. Our responsibility is to pray for them whom God has raised up to do His will at this time…

    3. Operation Protective Edge is still being fought. Hamas has broken every cease-fire they have asked for. Then when Israel responds to their rocket attacks, most of the world ignores who started it and deals with a sovereign law-abiding nation and an openly anti-Semitic, anti-Christ Islamic terrorist group as if they are equals. That is absolutely wicked and draws down the wrath of God (Isaiah 5:20)…

    4. We prayed for the IDF soldiers who have been on the border with Gaza for better than a month. Although some have been relieved, still they are there wondering whether they will need to enter Gaza again. Along with that is all of the tension, fears and doubts that rest in a man's heart before he goes into battle. While the battle does belong to the Lord, yet most often He uses men and men do die in His wars (Deuteronomy 20:1-9)…

    5. We, the people of Israel, have also been under tremendous tension. We've had over 3,500 rockets fired at us in the last month alone, as well as all the cease-fires with hopes of quiet, only to be broken as Hamas decides they have not killed enough Jews. On top of that there is the demonic media slant against Israel in most of the reporting, the rise of vicious anti-Semitic demonstrations and attacks against Jews in the West, and the sense that Israel is damned if we defend ourselves and damned if we don't - well, it is a battle to live in peace here now. Yet Jews are returning and God is still on His throne!…

    6. We prayed for the Church to stand in the gap for Israel and their nations…

    7. In the midst of Israel's current situation, Jews have been coming home and many Israelis have been returning as well. Both of these are answers to prayer. Yet we dare not stop praying…

Guidelines for Corporate Prayer

Staying on Track

In Intercessors for Israel prayer meetings, the leadership asks those assembled to form small groups (three to four individuals is recommended) and introduces subjects for prayer. In corporate prayer, we do not pray whatever comes into our heart/mind. We need to stay on track and exercise discipline to be sharpshooters in prayer and hit the center of the target.

General Prayer Topics

Regardless of current news, here are ongoing ways to pray and intercede for the people and Land of Israel:

  • Pray for the salvation of Israel.

  • Pray for aliyah (Jewish immigration to Israel).

  • Pray against any "land for peace" process.

  • Cry out for Israel to cry out.

  • Plead for mercy in the midst of God's righteous judgments.

  • Intercede for the salvation of Muslims.

  • Intercede for the Church, so that it wakes up to its responsibility toward Israel.
