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. This Shabbat's prophetic portion is from Isaiah 54:1-10

    2. There has been a noticeable increase in heaviness and weariness in the Body of Messiah in Israel. We are aware of the end-time prophecies warning of just this (Daniel 7:21-25), yet to go through it is very hard. So we prayed for strength and encouragement for this still young, but quickly growing, Body…

    3. We expanded that burden to pray for the Body worldwide…

    4. There is a definite increase of terrorist and rocket attacks on Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu and other officials see this as a direct result of that P5+1 Iranian nuclear deal. One of the worst parts of this deal is the release to Iran of around $150 billion. A significant sum will go to their terror proxies world-wide. So those groups are trying to show Iran how worthy they are to receive a piece of that money-pie. Israel needs even more prayer for security after this deal…

    5. We are praying for the US Congress to reject this Iranian nuke deal. Yet the tide seems to have turned in President Obama's favor and according to news reports, he may not even have to veto the Congress' veto. Remember how it did not look good for Bibi Netanyahu to win the elections this past spring - but God heard our prayers and he won overwhelmingly. So we will continue to ask for Congress to turn this demonically-inspired deal down - regardless of what the headlines say…

    6. We turned our attention to Israel's response to this very real and increasingly dangerous threat of an Iranian Shi'ite nuke…

    7. We agreed in prayer over Israel's educational system - that it would teach what lines up with the Word of God and not what lines up with the humanistic anti-God thinking and practices that are invading much of the West today.

    8. We ended our prayer time by interceding again for aliyah - the immigration of Jews from exile to home. Figures indicate another increase in aliyah this year, especially from Ukraine…

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.
