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. The opening verses of Shabbat's prophetic portion are very fitting to the current world chaos

    2. With the Gaza war halted - at least for now - the government coalition is back to life as usual - bickering, backbiting, and striving for political gain. Israel needs leaders who truly want what is best for the nation and not for what is best for their political careers…

    3. Even with all of the recent crises - Israel's war against Hamas, increased anti-Semitism and now the US' declared war against IS [aka ISIS, ISIL] - we dare not take our eyes off the most serious threat to both Israel and the West, which is Iran's march towards nuclear weaponry

    4. We next prayed for the IDF, which had a very strenuous and tense - but victorious summer. While many Israelis disagreed with the government's decision to halt the war against Hamas, most felt that the IDF did great…

    5. Just before Rosh Hashanah, [25th of Sept.] cease-fire talks with Hamas are supposed to begin. So far, we are no closer to a deal than we were when this battle began better than two months ago. So we prayed for Israel and the IDF to be ready for - whatever!…

    6. Israel needs to pass a budget by the end of the year or the government falls, and we go to new elections. Because of Operation Protective Edge, the military budget needs to be increased, yet most of the other ministries will need to take a cut. This can be a very tricky political hot potato for Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Netanyahu to tackle…

    7. Aliyah, the return of Jews to their land and nation, is biblically connected with God's glory. This is the reason why we continually ask God to bring His people home…

    8. Our final topic for intercession was the disturbing rise of violence in Jerusalem - from the Arab sector against the state. It is very noticeable on the Temple Mount, but also in many Arab areas that are next to primarily Jewish neighborhoods in the capital…

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.
