(Tactical Prayer for the Salvation of Israel)
What does it mean to "pray for God's will to be done on earth as it is written in heaven?" There are many Christians who pray for Israel who are only concerned with praying for the salvation of the Jewish People (Israel). When others pray for different things concerning Israel, those prayers are often criticized as being soulish or carnal. However in my mind, praying only for the salvation of Israel in broad terms does not take into consideration the steps the Lord will use to get there.
Intercessors for Israel has always prayed for the salvation of Israel but we have concentrated our prayers in the political and security realms as well as for the return of the Jewish People to their biblical homeland. We believe that this "prophetic evangelism" is our mandate from the Lord and that there is more to praying for the spiritual redemption of Israel than many people understand.
"Prophetic evangelism" means doing our small part in praying for the means through which God will do His much greater part to save the Jewish People.
The scriptures are clear that there are many different callings in the Body of Messiah.
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.(1 Cor 12:4-6)
We are praying strategically for God's purposes to be fulfilled in the salvation of His People and the revelation of Himself to a dead and dying world. We are also praying tactically for the ways and means that the prophetic Word tells us He will use to accomplish this purpose - that is, the return of the Jewish People to their land; the restoration of that land both physically and nationally; and its survival in the midst of a hostile and numerically superior enemy.
