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. We read the part of the story of Gideon and his band of 300 warriors and were encouraged by the fact that God does not save by many - or by few (1 Samuel 14:6)…

    2. The P5+1 nations [US, UK, France, Russia, China + Germany] in nuclear talks with Iran, have capitulated and given Iran everything they wanted and more. They have even committed to help Iran protect its nuclear program from various assaults, including cyber-attacks. US President Obama pressed for the UN Security Council to approve this deal last week, which they did by 15-0 vote. Yet the US Congress, which has 60 days [approx. Sept.15th - in the Days of Awe between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur], still has a chance to vote against this demonic agreement. So we prayed for the US Senators and Representatives to reject it. Many of you are not Americans, but this agreement impacts the whole world…

    3. One of the main reasons why the West is succumbing to the anti-God spirits of humanism, Islam, etc., is the absence of spiritual protection from the Church in these nations. Many Western churches curse Israel - whether via replacement or fulfillment theology, backing the BDS movement, or standing for 'social justice' as opposed to God's justice, etc. While Yeshua set us free from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13), the promise of Genesis 12:3 (Gal. 3:8), which includes not just the gospel to the gentiles but also His protection over Israel [I will bless those that bless you and curse the one who curses you.], is still valid today (Gal. 3:17-18). Thus these churches are under God's curse and powerless to stand against the enemy's onslaught. So we prayed for His Church to see the light and receive the gift of the love of truth (2 Thessalonians 2:10b)…

    4. Recalling Romans 8:28 and knowing that Israel is called according to His purpos, we prayed next for God to turn this wicked deal into good for this nation…

    5. Iran's leaders today are all proud and arrogant, having gotten all they demanded - and more -from these negotiations. Yet God's Word declares, Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18). So we asked God to use their bombastic conceit to bring down this wicked and dangerous Islamic Shiite regime…

    6. Aliyah - the immigration of Jews in exile back to Israel - is always on our hearts and minds…

    7. The land of Israel is an integral part of God's end time plans, as Messiah Yeshua returns here. Although God has promised this land to His people over 200 times in the Bible, the world - and much of the Church - disagrees with Him (Psalm 2:1-6). But our current government is beginning to act like it should, and build in all areas of our God given inheritance. And we were thrilled to hear Michael Oren say that Jesus and his family would be seen as settlers today - as they came from Bethlehem. Ha!…

    8. We finished by praying for the maturing of the Israeli Body of Messiah…

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.
