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?

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 read from Psalm 50, and then praised our Almighty God and King…

    2. In line with 1 Timothy 2:1-4, we first prayed for the new Israeli government, especially Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked. This government needs to be proactive in many areas and needs our intercessory support…

    3. With two ultra-Orthodox [Haredi] parties in the coalition, the legislation passed by the last government pressing young Haredi men into either the workforce or the army is being threatened. Yet we believe that many of this next generation do want to become more of a contributing factor…

    4. Israel's electoral system needs to be reformed. Bibi wants to do this but has not been very open with his ideas or plans. Still, Israeli Knesset Members [MKs] need to be held more accountable to the people…

    5. ISIS seems to be expanding their area of influence daily. Recent reports have them infiltrating both in the Sinai and Gaza. We prayed for the IDF to know what - if anything - they need to do today, and for the Egyptian army to see that Israel is not only not the enemy, but in this battle, an ally…

    6. Speaking of Iran, we have no faith that the P5+1 [5 permanent UN Security Council members + Germany] will end up with any kind of a deal that stops Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Either God steps in and deals a death blow to this Iranian nuclear program, or He uses Israel to do it…

    7. FIFA, the international football/soccer association has been pressed by the Palestinian Authority to kick Israel out of their league. This is another evil fruit of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that has grown against Israel over the past decade. Yet just as this was being discussed, it was revealed that a number of FIFA officials are guilty of corruption. Is this God's timing?…

    8. We ended by praying for the leadership of the Israeli Messianic Body…

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.
