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. February 27th, 2015
    1. We looked at Isaiah 42:23-25 and were blessed to realize that there were no chapter divisions in the original text…

    2. Next Tuesday, March 3rd, Israel's Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will speak to a joint session of the US Congress - much to the disapproval of the US administration! His message will likely focus on the danger of an Iranian Shiite nuclear weapon or an Iran being left as a nuclear threshold state, as well as what an existential threat this will be to Israel. He is also supposed to expose 'Islamic' terrorism. The controversy about this has been over the top, yet that will result in more people listening than if there was no controversy. The enemy has overplayed his hand again. Another answer to prayer!…

    3. There is a demonic assault on Israel's leader, in the form of hurtful words and lies. Politicians from many nations, but especially from Israel and America, as well as the mainstream media, have been the channels of choice for Satan in this area. Is this just more proof that what Netanyahu will say is vitally important for God's kingdom purposes? We think so…

    4. Israel's upcoming elections [March 17th] need much prayer. Again, unless the Lord redirects us, we must pray in line with His last direction, so we continue to ask Him to allow Netanyahu become Israel's next prime minister. For that to happen, his Likud party needs to gain a huge victory…

    5. We prayed that the Israeli Body would take their God-given spiritual responsibility for these elections - asking for God's Kingdom to come and His will to be done in Israel as it is in heaven…

    6. The IDF and the Shin Bet [internal security service] have recently captured several terror cells. It seems like the 'lone wolves' are starting to form 'wolf packs'. As they are unconnected with major terror groups and use simple weapons in their attacks, they are more difficult to find and stop…

    7. An answer to prayer was the successful suing of the Palestinian Authority and the PLO by a number of terror victims and their families in the US. The judgment was against the PA who is now responsible to come up with hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation. All of this should put a huge stumbling block in the path of the PA wanting to try Israel at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Lord, we thank and bless You for this, and ask that this becomes another nail in the coffin of the 'dead-yet-alive' so-called 'peace' process.

    8. With the P5+1 nations [US, UK, France, Russia, China + Germany] being pressured by Obama & Co. to close a deal with Iran by March 31st, the pressure is on Israel as to how to deal with this 'clear and present' danger. Note this convergence of events: Bibi's speech [March 3rd]; Israeli elections [17th]; a solar eclipse on a New Moon feast [20th]; the P5+1 deadline with Iran [31st]; the 3rd of four Red Moons, Passover eve [April 4 th]. We are sure this is no coincidence but are not sure of what exactly it means. Now, if Israel needs to attack Iran's nuclear program militarily, it seems that after a P5+1 global agreement with Iran would make an Israeli attack almost impossible. Israel would become the world's - well, at least the West's - pariah nation…

    9. We never thought that we would quote the pop-music star Madonna - yet God can use anyone to get peoples' attention. Yesterday, in a Europe 1 radio interview, she said anti-Semitism and "growing intolerance" in Europe, has reached a level that "feels like Nazi Germany," adding that "anti-Semitism is at an all-time high," in France and Europe. Hmm, she sees that the Jeremiah 16:16 hunters have been released. Now if only the Jews in exile would see that, we could have a huge increase in aliyah this year. So that is what we prayed about…

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.
