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. Hodu l'Adonai ki tov, ki leolam chasdo - Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His lovingkindness/mercy/everlasting love last forever.

      Psalm 107:1; 118:1; 136:1
    2. Salvation: Monday evening, April 14th, Jews in Israel and in exile, will be celebrating Passover, a feast of YHWH (Leviticus 23:4-5). This feast is foundational not only for Israel as a nation, but also for the Church. On this night Messiah Yeshua, taking unleavened bread and wine, both of which are central to the Passover feast, said that these now also represent His body and blood - broken and poured out for us. This is a perfect time to ask God to remove the veil on the eyes of the Jewish people so that they can also look upon the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29)…

    3. One of the last things that is said at the Passover seder/meal is 'Next year in Jerusalem'. So aliyah, the return of God's people from exile to Israel, is another very timely topic for prayer…

    4. The piece-by-piece 'peace' process is on life-support. God have mercy and let it die! This anti-biblical 'land-for-peace' deal is a stench in His nostrils, as it is based on Israel trading her God-given inheritance for a deceptive 'peace' with intractable enemies. Yet even if real peace was offered, this land is not Israel's to trade. The land shall not be sold forever; for the land is Mine, and you are strangers and pilgrims with Me. (Leviticus 25:23) It is far better to have the world upset with Israel than to have God stand against His people once again. While this 'peace' almost died last week, US Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to keep it alive - with reports of bribing Israel by trading Jonathan Pollard for the release of hundreds of more terrorists. Yet Pollard has more than served jail time for his crime, has confessed his wrongdoings - while statistics show that freed terrorists often return to committing further acts of terror…

    5. Obviously, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is under tremendous pressure. While he has not made many public statements recently, what he has said has been right on the mark. Yet he is the main target for the enemy's arrows - so we need to continually hold him up in prayer…

    6. Security is always a concern during the times of God's feasts…

    7. Iran continues to be a threat to Israel and much of the rest of the world. While they speak peace with their mouths, reports have exposed that more Iranians have been executed since Mr. 'Moderate' Rouhani has become President than even under ex-president Ahmadinejad…

    8. We finished by interceding for the Body of Messiah in Israel…

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.
