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. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

      Psalms 100:4
    2. The Israeli election campaign is in full swing. All primaries are over and most of the parties lists of candidates are complete. This election is coming at a crucial time as we see more chaos, confusion and anti-Semitism rising up in the world, as well as a more dangerous situation developing surrounding Israel

    3. We prayed for protection over this nation from the deceptive manipulation of most of the media - both Israel's and internationally

    4. We asked the Lord to give us clarity to see what really happened this past week in Paris - both with the terrible terror attacks and with the huge 'unity' march. We sense the enemy working both ends towards his goals and asked the Lord to show us how to align our thinking and prayers with Him. Humanism is growing - as is Islamic terrorism. Both these anti-Christ forces see Jews and Christians as the enemy. We truly need His anointing to understand how to stand and pray

    5. Hizbullah, the terror group based in Lebanon with deep links to both Iran and Syria's President Assad, is back in the news big time. It was revealed that they have around 150,000 missiles, many of which can hit all areas in Israel - and that they could be preparing to invade Israel in the very near future. Their fighters in Syria - the ones who were not killed - have gained much fighting experience supporting and battling for Assad to stay in power. Also, a report has surfaced that says Syria is again trying to develop nuclear weapons in the hidden base right next to Hizbullah-land

    6. It has been revealed that the US Consulate in Jerusalem [America's embassy is in Tel Aviv], is training Palestinians in Jericho to be armed security guards for their complex. This is a break of protocol as the agreement with Israel is that only ex-IDF combat veterans would be in this position. This is another slap in the face of Netanyahu and Israel by the Obama administration and their John Kerry-run State Department. And this is very dangerous - for America

    7. God can cause all things to work together for good (Romans 8:28) - although nowhere in the Bible does it say that all things are good. And this is what He is doing during this time of increasing anti-Semitism and terrorism in Europe in particular. Besides the recent events in France, a UK survey has just shown that almost 50% of respondents hold anti-Semitic ideas and almost 50% of UK Jews are very concerned for their future there. The good God is working out of this? There is a definite increase in aliyah - the immigration of Jews to Israel. While it would be nice to see Jews come home out of a love for Zion, the scriptures say they will return both for that reason and because of escaping from the hunters

    8. We prayed for the Israeli Body of believers - especially Messianic Jewish elders - that all would line up their thinking with God and not with men. The struggle for the right to inherit that which God has promised us, is primarily a spiritual issue. It plays out in the political and all other areas, but if Israeli believers are not clear, then who can stand before God? Compromise on His promises is not biblical. Blessing our enemies is scripturally, but God receiving the glory takes priority. And as He says in Ezekiel 36, the restoration of the Jews to Israel - and the destruction of His/their enemies (Chap. 35) - is for the sanctification of His name…

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.
