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.

  2. October 24th, 2014
    1. Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples! For His merciful kindness is great toward us, And the truth of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!

      Psalm 117
    2. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! (Psalm 122:6)

      Recent months have seen an escalation and intensification of violence in certain parts of Jerusalem. There have been many incidents of Arabs throwing rocks around the Temple Mount area, directed against the light railway and in other places. This week a baby was killed and several other people were injured in a terror attack in the city. It seems that the world doesn't expect anyone to have to account for their lawless actions. We need to pray for wise, firm action from the security services…

    3. UN Security Council

      There is much expectation focused on a likely application to the UN Security Council for the recognition of a state of Palestine. Therefore there is plenty of attention given to those 15 nations which form the Security Council. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan is a professing Christian and he is coming to Israel to pray at the Western Wall for re-election to the presidency…

    4. Israel's Cabinet

      It is becoming increasingly difficult to hold the present coalition government together. Leaders of the parties forming the government are not willing to give public support to the decisions reached within the Cabinet but seek to score political points by speaking out their disagreements with Prime Minister Netanyahu and with government policy. If an early General Election was called Netanyahu is likely to be strengthened while other leaders would be weakened (according to opinion polls)…

    5. Innocent people suffering in neighboring Middle East nations

      Horrific events are taking place in Syria, Iraq, Kurdish areas and elsewhere in the Middle East. Let's cry out for God's mercy and for the nations to take seriously these horrors…

    6. US mid-term elections

      We recognize that while our mandate is to pray for Israel, we need to pray for these elections also for their potential for huge impact on American policy toward Israel…

    7. Iran

      The P5+1 and Iranian negotiators are due to reach agreement by 24th November regarding Iran's nuclear program and on international sanctions against Iran. As these negotiations have progressed the demands of the P5+1 have softened and dropped while Iran seems to have conceded almost nothing. Clearly the negotiating teams and the nations they represent want agreement at any cost. Israel's leaders seem to be alone and unheeded in their constant reminders that "no deal is better than a bad deal". As we seem to be heading toward a bad deal…

    8. Aliyah

      The numbers of Jewish people immigrating to Israel were substantially up during the (Hebrew calendar) year just finished. Those of us living in Jerusalem are aware of French being spoken more and more on the buses, in the streets, in restaurants, etc. While many are recognizing that they no longer have a future in the nations we need to pray that there would continue to be fishers sent out to encourage Jews to choose to return to Israel. (Jeremiah 16:16)…

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.
