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. March 27th, 2015
    1. Shabbat's prophetic portion includes Malachi 3:6 that we often quote…

    2. We were troubled to hear that last month the US government declassified a Defense Department top-secret document detailing Israel's nuclear weapons program. This was done as President Obama's distain for Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu escalated. Israel wanted to keep this hidden to avoid starting a Middle East nuclear arms race - yet with the Iranian deal as is known today, that race has already begun. Still, this is a major breach of agreements between Israel and America. Obama is a very real danger to Israel, to America and to most of the rest of the world. So we prayed…

    3. Although Netanyahu and his Likud party won the elections convincingly, he still needs to form a coalition to have a government of 61 or more Knesset Members. So far, coalition negotiations are not going smoothly as many of the other parties are making over-the-top demands. Our battle in prayer for a government in Israel through which God can be glorified is far from over…

    4. The P5+1 [Permanent five UN Security Council nations + Germany] negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program, are supposed to come to some sort of basic deal by the end of this month. From what is reported so far, this deal will be very dangerous, leaving Iran as a nuclear threshold state. Iran's influence is spreading rapidly in the ME, with Yemen being its latest victory. Yet Yemen could turn out to be an answer to prayer as the situation there has drawn Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Arab nations into a military pact and they have just attacked the Iran-backed Houthi forces there. Iran's demands from the P5+1 are also hardening…

    5. We next prayed for Israel's overall security…

    6. Next Friday at sunset we will celebrate Passover with the Seder meal. Of course, this feast is intimately linked with our salvation through Messiah Yeshua as He is the Lamb of God who protects us from God's righteous judgments and bears our sins. This is a very appropriate time to pray for Israelis - and Jews in exile - to have an encounter with their King Yeshua…

    7. That last prayer led us to transition into praying for aliyah - the immigration of the Jews from captivity and exile back home to Israel. This is one of the two times during the year when Jews will say 'Next year in Jerusalem'. It would be great if more and more actually set their sights on making that a reality in the near future…

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.
