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. This week we start the cycle of Torah readings over again…

    2. This past week, the UK parliament passed a non-binding resolution recognizing a Palestinian State. While this does not change UK government policy - that a 'Palestine' needs to be created through negotiations with Israel - this is a sign of things to come. Recently, Sweden's new government said they would recognize a Palestine and France basically said the same thing. The Palestinians love this as they can avoid compromising in any way with 'the Zionist entity' and have a state on Israel's God-given inheritance. They are asking the UN Security Council to pass a resolution stating that by November 2016, Israel must be totally out of the so-called 'occupied territories', thus being backed up to the 1949 armistice lines. Will the US veto this? What will your nation do? We prayed for Israel's government to be prepared for whatever the future holds, and to be able to make decisions based on God's will for this time…

    3. Most nations do not understand that they are actually fighting against God's will when trying to create a 'Palestine' on His land. Yet their ignorance will not protect them from His judgments. The Church has a right and responsibility to stand in the gap for their specific nation - pleading for mercy…

    4. In the middle of the increasing international pressure on Israel, one of the things we sense that God is wanting from His people is to recognize and embrace that they are called to be a nation that dwells alone, and not a nation like all the other nations. Israel has been separated for His purposes. Of course, this should also be the mindset of the Body of Messiah…

    5. Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu was the next prayer target. While we may not agree 100% with all he says and does, we are convinced that he is God's choice to lead His people at this time…

    6. Iran continues to press on towards developing nuclear weapons, yet most of the West is more interested in doing business with the Ayatollahs than dealing with the dire implications of a Shiite nuke in the hands of a fanatical Islamic regime…

    7. We have seen an increase in aliyah this past year - and that is an answer to prayer! As we see an increase in anti-Semitism, more and more Jews are looking to come home to Israel…

    8. There has been a 'silent intifada [uprising]' in and around Jerusalem - silent because it is not being given much coverage by the Israeli press. The number of attacks by Arabs has increased and there have been some deaths as Israeli security forces have defended both the people and themselves…

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.
