    1. A psalm. For giving grateful praise. Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.

      Psalm 100
    2. Forming the new government - President Rivlin has granted Binyamin Netanyahu a two week extension in the time he is allowed to form a new government coalition. This continues to be problematic as the leaders of the other parties (notably the "Jewish Home" Party and the "Israel Our Home" Party) make excessive demands as conditions for giving their support for Netanyahu's government…

    3. Gaza - Security - As Independence Day was coming to an end a rocket was fired into Israel out of Gaza. This was the first such incident of 2015 and there were no casualties. Israel responded with tank fire against the launch site of the rocket. Over recent months there have been reports of Hamas working on rebuilding the tunnels intended for launching terror operations against Israel. Also there are reports of technological breakthroughs in equipment to detect tunnels and Israel's increasing deployment of such equipment…

    4. Northern Border - Hezbollah remain a greater danger to Israel on the borders with Lebanon and Syria. They have a much greater stockpile of rockets and also, reportedly, an infrastructure of tunnels to launch attacks into Israel notably to kidnap Israelis…

    5. Iran - While the leaders of Iran speak arrogantly and clearly of their plans to annihilate Israel they mean what they say and are spitting in God's face. It is increasingly clear that there is no good agreement which it is possible to make in this situation, but the P5+1 talks go on. While Israel's very existence is on the line, it appears that the world powers are mainly motivated by the money to be made through the removal of sanctions against Iran…

    6. U.S. President Obama - His actions are increasingly suggesting that he is actively and consciously seeking to re-shape the world, empowering Iran, disempowering the USA and ignoring Israel. If we are correct in this discernment, then Isaiah 59:1-8 gives a description of what is going on…

    7. Israel's responsibility - If the rest of the world is unwilling to protect Israel, she will have to protect herself…

    8. Israel's Salvation - In the past week we have commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day, Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers and Terror Victims and finally the joy of Independence Day. In all these we see God's hand over Israel, preserving the nation and restoring her to her land. All this in order that He might save her!…

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.
