Prayer

Introduction


Welcome to the prayer page.  We thank you for your interest in supporting the ministry of Christian Friends of Israel and would fully appreciate your prayer covering for all elements of the work of CFI, its trustees, staff, area representatives and volunteers.


A few years ago the Lord gave this prophecy for the work of CFI in the UK, which was tested out and prayed over by the trustees and staff, and is still as relevant to us all as ever:


God will provide the strategies – not just to cope
But to overcome and
Be victorious
IF we ask…..


As believers – we are in a battle as those who stand with Israel and for biblical truth.  It’s important we know who we are and that we are overcomers in Christ alone and that he promises protection for us and provision for us in these areas and for this ministry.


If you would like to stand with Christian Friends of Israel, please use these prayer pointers as a guide, but if you would like to support further areas of the ministry or pray for the staff and the volunteer area reps, for instance, or begin a CFI prayer group, please contact   julia.soakell@cfi.org.uk


 


Pray for More Intercessors – Thoughts on a 1911 Prophecy


At the recent Lydia Conference a 1911 prophecy was shown to me that was startling in accuracy and detail.  Shortly before his death in 1918, Bishop Aristocoli of the Russian Orthodox Church passed it to Mother Barbara, a Russian nun.


It mentions that not one nation will be without trial, and that the evils to come will affect Russia, that Germany would be divided and Italy would face many natural disasters.  “Britain will lose her empire and all her colonies, and will come to almost total ruin, but will be saved through praying women.”


As with all prophecies, the content of this one needs to be tested carefully. But let’s thank God for these words of prophecy, as in his mercy and compassion our Father warns the nations – he is faithful and does not want anyone to be lost.


Let’s pray that the nations take note, turn back to God and search for their Saviour and Redeemer.


Ask the Holy Spirit to expose the root of anti-Semitism that exists in individuals, churches and nations; and for a great revelation of the promises made by God to Abraham and the Jewish people – and further revelation that the churches need to be praying people.


It seems that many intercessors in the nations are women, but let’s pray for men and women, young and old, to pray for Israel and the Jewish people in an overflow of their love for our heavenly Father.

Praying Through the Darkness


“Hear me, O God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy” (Psalm 64:1).


Whether we are pleading with God for him to preserve Israel from the dreaded peril of her enemies, or to keep her safe in dangerous times, there is no darkness that can keep the light of prayer from shining through.  Many in Islam today are enslaved to the adversary, serving a false god and under the dominion of the kingdom of darkness.  Many do not know they are in bondage.  Some live in a state of denial and refuse to admit that they need to be rescued from the domain of darkness.


The Bible reveals that Israel’s enemies have been taunting her since ancient times. They have been boasting against her and threatening her by means of insulting remarks and offensive provocations.  Fake news and the bias in the international media both convey to the world a menu of headlines such as:  “Hezbollah Chief Tells Jews to Flee before Israel Devastated by War” (Dov Lieber article, Times of Israel, 1st October 2017). “For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together. They say, “God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him.” Be not far from me, O God; come quickly, O my God, to help me” (Psalm 71:10-12).


A long list of Islamic boasts against the Jewish state could be compiled, but just as the giant Goliath boasted against little David, I believe the giant this time (Islam) will be defeated by David (Israel) when the war that seems inevitable begins in the north.  For months Israel has been preparing its approach to handling the outbreak of another conflict with Hamas, Hezbollah and other Islamic terrorists.


It is our work, as Watchmen on the Walls, to fight the war alongside Israel, but in prayer rather than physical combat.  Great things can be accomplished for God when we pray in the Spirit, but we must stay at our posts and never pull back.  May God grant grace and fortitude to all the faithful prayer warriors and intercessors who meet together to pray for Israel, in whichever nation you do so.  We are all deeply grateful here in Jerusalem for those whose voices are repeatedly raised to God and who continue to pray through the darkest of times.


Let’s Enter the Throne Room of Prayer



  • Pray for the Palestinian couple who last month discovered their teenage son had planned to carry out a terrorist attack against Israeli soldiers.  People are often persecuted when they stand up for Israel.  Pray for their protection and thank God that they were honest and caring people who turned him in before innocent lives were taken.  “Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you’” (Psalm 66:3).



  • Thank God that in a recent interview the head of a Palestinian village in Jerusalem was brave enough to say that, “almost all of the city’s Arabs would prefer to live peacefully under Israeli administration.” (Internet link:   www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRpDGA_ZAtM)



  • Pray Fervently that Hamas operatives will stop digging terrorist tunnels into Israel.  Israel has given a warning to them to stop.  Pray that finances and budgets to dig tunnels, through which to infiltrate Israel, will dry-up in order for the secret plots of wicked people to be thwarted.  “Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, from that noisy crowd of evildoers” (Psalm 64:2).



  • Beseech the Lord to lead more of the faithful, more believers, more God-fearers, to serve in the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) in the strength of the Lord.  Even though it is made up of many different Israelis from all walks of life, let us pray for great integrity, wisdom and moral standards to prevail in the IDF and all Israeli military forces.  “The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.” (Psalm 28:8).



  • Petition the Lord to be merciful this year and provide much rain for the land.  According to news reports, the thirsty Sea of Galilee is sinking toward the lowest level ever recorded as Northern Israel experiences one of the worst droughts in 100 years.  Pray for the water tables to rise rapidly once God sends rain.



  • The Bible describes how God often withheld rain in the past when he wanted his people to repent.  Ask the Lord to prompt much prayer to go up from Israel for the early and latter rains ... some of which have already fallen during Succot.  “Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops” (James 5:18).



  • Thank God for Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who has proclaimed that no more settlements will be uprooted in the Land of Israel.  “I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them," says the LORD your God.” (Amos 9:15).



  • Praise God for the policy breakthrough in the IDF, which have rolled out measures to stop selling harmful cigarettes on army bases.  This is a very good step not only for health purposes, but for a cleaner environment for them to work in and to take care of themselves.


Much continues to take place in the Nation of Israel that indicates godly attitudes are gaining ground over the many vices that have entered in through other nations, or the desire to be like other nations.  Please keep praying for Israel to truly be a blessing to the nations and to lead the world in Godly ways in preparation for the Coming Kingdom of God to this earth – to Jerusalem.  May God prepare this nation, and the true Church, for the days ahead.


From Israel with Love,


Sharon Sanders

CFI-UK News and Prayer requests


Thank the Lord for his guidance in addressing the staff shortages.  Two new members of staff joined us on a part-time basis in October and one is joining us on a full-time basis in November.  Ask the Lord to help each of these three to learn the various elements of their role at CFI and to settle-in quickly.


And please do continue to pray for the Father to continue filling us with the Holy Spirit so that we will work closely with him and discern what he wants done.  We still face choices every day in our work, as to what to do and what to leave for another day.  This can be very frustrating when we really want to be able to do all of the tasks before us – to be up-to-date!


As many of you will understand, good health is vitally important for all staff, volunteers and their families. And once again, recovery from fatigue is much needed, as October has been another very busy month.


Thank the Lord for all his help, provision and guidance with our stand at the CRE Exhibition at Sandown Park, 17th-19th October.  Our stand was busy on each of the three days, with many useful conversations taking place, as well as the sale of a good number of books and DVDs, and the giving out of our free literature.  Please pray that there will be substantial fruit for God’s kingdom from all of these aspects of our time at CRE.


Pray too that there will be fruit for his kingdom from our attendance at the Beit Yeshua Conference in Gateshead on 14th October and at the Hawick Conference in the Scottish Borders on 21st October.  Ask the Lord to spread the information conveyed at these events and to build an interest in Israel in the respective communities.


We have organised two coach parties to travel to the Balfour 100 Celebration at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday 7th November. Please pray for all aspects of the journeys and for God to bless the event itself.


‘Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary ...’
(Isaiah 40:30-31).

Concerns for Our Nation and Politics


In these days many people feel that we are on the edge of a spiritual precipice as a nation, and perhaps even globally. Many have concerns about our political parties here in the UK.  We realise that all parties in politics have their own agenda, and none are perfect or purely honourable, but some troubling statements and calls were made to members of the Labour Party through fringe meetings at the Party Conference recently.

After a barrage of singing homage to Jeremy Corbyn, oblivious to his terrorist organisation connections, many were shocked by calls to remove Jewish Labour MPs and to close down the Labour Friends of Israel organisation. Initially, Mr Corbyn and the leadership ignored the reports of those calls; and in his speech Mr Corbyn said,


“Let’s give real support to end the oppression of the Palestinian people,
the 50 year occupation and illegal settlement expansion,
and move to a genuine two state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.”


Jewish MPs and Labour MPs who support Israel are often marginalised and sometimes threatened and abused. We must pray about these issues, about our government and about freedom of speech in the UK.


It is also alarming to see the recent coverage of left-wing groups disrupting university meetings when a pro-Israeli or Jewish speaker is addressing students. We need to pray for godly men and women, full of the Holy Spirit and the word of God, to be given the chance to redress the balance in our places of learning.


Truth and integrity seem to be rare commodities within organisations like the United Nations currently. So please pray for Mosab Hassan Yousef.  This former member of Hamas, the eldest son of the founder of Hamas, has worked for the Israeli Intelligence Agency and exposed the corrupt Palestinian Authority at the United Nations. However he now needs our prayers as his life could be in danger.


Click on this link to watch a video clip that shows some of the usual criticism of Israel at the UN, but also shows Mosab’s contribution to proceedings at the Human Rights Council on 25th September 2017. Note the expressions on the faces of all the delegates around him.

The Uniqueness of the Year


`The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness` (Lamentations 3:22-24).


This year is unique in a number of ways. It is the year 5777/5778 in the Jewish calendar and here in the UK we have much we will be celebrating and commemorating. So we ask you to pray specifically for:


The offices and staffing – for strength, good health, a sense of teamwork and blessings on all at both the Eastbourne Office and Northern Office; for trustees and volunteers, which includes dozens of Regional and Church Links around the UK, for their walk with the Lord, their families and commitments and for the Lord’s favour in all they do for CFI.


The CFI Annual Conference – Israel: Covenants and Kingdom over Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd September; for Willem Glashouwer, Andrew Tucker and James Patrick plus Stacey and Kevin Howard, as speakers; for musicians and singers, but particularly for the staff as they prepare for this significant event.


The CFI UK Delegation Tour – the first visit of Stacey and Kevin Howard from CFI Jerusalem, now that the baton has been handed on from Ray and Sharon Sanders.  Much of the detailed planning is now done and leaflets are being made available to advertise venues in Luton, Halesowen, Dewsbury, Billingham, Perth, CFI National Conference, Old Woking, Eastleigh, Oxford and Bristol. Please pray for everything from travel to technical concerns; from spiritual insight for the listeners to great support for CFI and its projects; to sleep and health of those concerned; from stronger ties between offices here in UK and Jerusalem to literature given out and resources sold to help gain more depth of understanding – God is able to go before us and protect us.


Balfour 100 Celebration – For those who want to attend the Balfour 100 Celebration at the Albert Hall on 7th November – a unique event for Jews and Gentiles to commemorate this historic document and to stand together for Israel. Please pray for those organising the event, especially Roy Thurley as he oversees finances and the souvenir programme for the event, and for the security of the whole evening as well as all of the travelling. Brochures and flyers for each of these are available through CFI for more details.

Praying for the Nation with ‘Kavanah’


There is a call for a National Day of Prayer for the United Kingdom and for her Godly ties. It has been set for Friday 8th September by groups of intercessors around the country. In this time of compromise, political correctness, global unrest and chaos around the world, it is not bland prayers that should be offered up. The need is for prayers that line up with the heart of God, bring revelation to those who are lost and without hope, and bring glory to God.


The Hebrew word kavanah means direction, intention or devotion and gives a sense of setting your heart with total focus and not being caught up in the chaos around you. This applies even if it’s a familiar prayer like the disciple’s prayer – “May your kingdom come, May your will be done.”


At this time there is a great need for prayer for our nation and its leaders, especially Theresa May, her cabinet and the leaders of the DUP. They all need to have a deep revelation of the Father’s heart for this country, as well as its turning away from its Judeo-Christian foundations. We should also pray for our Queen, a lady of great faith, in her role as Defender of the Faith.


We must pray for the UK to be reunited, along with the Channel Islands and Gibraltar, and also for our relationship with Israel. The familiar promise to Abraham remains as powerful as ever:


“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse” Genesis 12 v3


Please encourage your prayer groups and church fellowships to pray wholeheartedly about these issues; that this National Day of Prayer will be supported by many Christians around the UK; that church leaders, the Government, the Jewish Community and many in authority will come to know what it is to live in awe of the Lord our God.


‘Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.’ Psalm 128 v1

Praying for Our Nation in Relation to Israel


Many of you will have been praying recently, as we all brought the UK election and Brexit issues before the Lord.  We needed to do this as instructed in 1 Timothy 2 v1-4


‘I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people
for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved
and to come to a knowledge of the truth.’
(NIV) 


We need to pray that this nation returns to the biblical foundations that it held to in the past.  The strength of Christian belief was seen clearly in World War 2, when King George VI called for a National Day of Prayer at the time of the Dunkirk crisis.  A leaflet called ‘Wartime Miracles’ is available from strengthenthefaithful@gmail.com


It says: ‘so widespread and so deep was faith in God that literally millions of people flocked into churches to pray.’ There is a photo of a queue, a quarter of a mile long as people were desperate to get into pray at a special service held in Westminster Abbey!


The queue waiting to pray


Like Field Marshall Montgomery, Winston Churchill is said to have testified to divine intervention – Churchill said “I sometimes have a feeling of interference … I have a feeling that some Guiding Hand has interfered.”


We need to recognise the great need for prayer again as a nation. I pray for a greater wave of intercession in the UK than ever before. How many times has God proved his faithfulness ... his great mercy ... his astonishing grace for Israel and indeed for us?  We can be confident in God, to fulfil all his promises and, as Lance Lambert used to say, “We need to be God’s secretaries” and remind him of his promises though Scripture.


So please continue to pray for our nation to turn back to God; to stop the compromise from the foundations of biblical principles; for Theresa May and the Government to act justly and with integrity in our dealings with Israel; and as she has said before, to stand with the Jewish Community in the nations of the UK.


Let’s remember Scripture as we pray for mercy:


‘For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you [Israel] will perish;
it will be utterly ruined.’ (Isaiah 60 v 12)


 Please pray:



  • For our MPs and Councillors to become aware of a supernatural revelation of God and his heart for the nation of Israel.

  • For Christian MPs, often seen at Lobby Day with the ZF/CFI who stand with the Jewish Community, and for the highlighting of Anti-Semitism in political parties and in society as a whole.

  • For people of influence in our Universities and Further Education systems where prejudice and bias against Israel, even hate for Israel, has become almost epidemic.

  • For the safety and divine protection of Jewish and Christian students throughout our University Campuses.

  • For the Lord to reveal himself to leaders and influencers within these circles “to know the fear of the Lord” and turn away from bias and intolerance.

The Finger of God


When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained … what is man that you are mindful of him? Psalm 8v3-4 

Do you know that the finger of God is mentioned about ten times in the Bible?


In Psalm 8v3 the writer, probably David, recognises the greatness of God, his creativeness and his awareness of all that is going on.  Just as Hagar realised he is the God who sees all things, El Roi (Genesis 16v13), we can trust God with everything.


As we pray about Israel, her links with the UK and the Balfour Declaration, and other great concerns about terrorism within the nations, and economic uncertainty, we can hold on to God’s promises and his faithfulness.


Below is the site in Shiloh (Jeremiah 7v12) where the finger of God literally wrote his name in the topography of the land. Because he is Sovereign, God can do as he pleases!


“It’s impossible for him to forget his Jewish people … God is concerned for his nation Israel, so much so that he has written his name – YHVH in the land there.  It is at Beit El (Bethel) that from space one can see God’s name written in the topography of the land - יהוה (YHVH - Yahweh or Yahveh). There are some places that one can’t adequately put into words.  There are some places that need to be seen, yet to remain silent and stand in awe of God.  This is such a place – Beit El – the House of God.”
(Excerpt and image taken from David Soakell’s News Report June 2015)


God`s name in the mountains of Israel


Pray for Israel’s borders and her protection at this time.


Pray that the Lord will expose vulnerable areas, such as new tunnels being built by Hezbollah in Lebanon, and by Hamas in Gaza, to penetrate the security of Israel’s borders.


Pray for the UK – her response to the historical promises made as a nation, and repentance for the fact that we didn’t keep our word. God takes seriously any promises and oaths that we take, as well as those that he makes himself.


Thank God that Theresa May has spoken several personal messages to the Jewish Community and has reiterated that the Government will not apologise for making the Balfour Declaration in 1917.


Pray that God gives her great resolve not to compromise on this and other Biblical issues, and that she stands with Israel.


Pray for those organisations and MPs who speak up for Israel and Jewish concerns here, that they will have godly wisdom, discernment and divine protection.

Jerusalem - What LIES Beneath?


As the United Nations has deliberated over the authenticity of Jerusalem in recent months, and made decisions based on untruths rather than the infallible word of God, we surely must be concerned that any doubt in the Jewishness of Israel’s capital has a bearing on the roots of Christianity.  But what lies beneath Jerusalem?  Well, more than ever we know that great historical treasures are being unearthed, shedding light on archaeology dating from the first and second temple eras.  Twenty-four feet underground, a cistern has been found that was provision for the dry season for the City of David (2 Samuel 5:8). First Temple period houses, royal seals (Jeremiah 36:10), Zedekiah’s Cave, the quarries of Solomon and lengthy Western Wall tunnels, to name just a few, shout out the undeniable fact that Jerusalem is entrenched in the history of the Bible, the Jewish people and our faith.    


But what ‘lies’ beneath these claims that Judaism has nothing to do with this great city?  The father of lies does!  More than ever before there is a battle for real godly truth.  We hear through the media about Fake News! Every pure aspect of God’s character and promises is set to be undermined by lies, and our prayers now must be that God himself exposes the lies and brings godly fear on those who shake their fist in his face. He will not be mocked and we must pray that we see the restoration of his name in all the earth, not for Israel’s sake, but for his name’s sake (Ezekiel 36).  


Pray into areas you are aware of where there is compromise with regard to truth. Pray for leadership in your local churches that they may have a real revelation of the Jewishness of Jesus (Yeshua).  Also pray that they will see the Hebraic roots of the Christian faith; the richness of the Bible as a Jewish book about a Jewish Saviour – who they esteem as their Lord.


Pray for supernatural connections with these leaders to Christian Friends of Israel, or to sound, godly men and women who can give a clear understanding of these things, and a hunger for the word of God – in Spirit and in truth – for all who teach, preach and lead in the UK Church


Pray that God reveals any anti-Semitism or anti- Zionism from their past, or any blockages to understanding.  The word of God is alive and sharp, likened to a two edged sword.  It is often the case that prayer for revelation is the best way forward – not continually asking that these leaders “read this book”, or hear our point of view about Israel. Leaving it to God means we leave our concerns in the best of hands.


Answers to prayer:


For the past six months, CFI’s David Soakell has been speaking around the UK on this subject.  He challenged many Christian audiences that if the United Nations agreed that the Temple Mount and the Western Wall were exclusively Islamic and had nothing to do with Judaism (as stated by UNESCO in their original resolution, which referred to the Temple Mount solely by its Muslim name of ‘Al-Haram Al Sharif’ and was approved by the UN at its 40th session last year), then they were declaring that the Gospels, and by implication all the New Testament, are untrue, inaccurate and full of fables. Proving through archaeology, and taking the audience on a pictorial journey through the Western Wall tunnels and the Southern Wall’s ancient steps that date back to Herod’s Temple and beyond, David enabled the church to see the importance of the truth, and why we need to act and pray against these actions by the UN in dismissing Israel’s biblical history.


Following this, in Brussels on 4th April 2017, UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova finally and firmly rebuffed any attempts to deny Jewish history connected to Jerusalem. In a unique statement at the ECI policy conference in the European Parliament.  She said that “in the Torah, Jerusalem is the capital of King David, where Solomon built the Temple and placed the Ark of the Covenant.”  Distinguishing between her role as the highest official of UNESCO and the resolutions passed by member states of the same organisation, she stated, “To deny, conceal or erase any of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions undermines the integrity of the site, and runs counter to the reasons that justify its inscription in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The protection of the heritage of Jerusalem is part of a broader vision for peace and the fight against all forms of denial of Jewish history, delegitimisation of Israel and anti-Semitism.”  Thank you to all who prayed regarding this … It appears prayers have been answered!   (If you would like to read the full report on UNESCO, click here.

Guidelines for Corporate Prayer


(Adapted from teaching given by Lance Lambert and Art Carlson)



  1. Be brief. In Matthew 6:7 Jesus says that the Gentiles suppose they will be heard for their many words. We haven`t changed much!

  2. Speak clearly and loudly enough to be heard. As Paul said in another context, how can we say "Amen" if we don`t know what is said.

  3. Pray from the heart, don`t preach. Avoid sentimentality and unnatural speech. Sometimes you can tell what group people come from by listening to them pray, because they adopt a particular style. Be honest; talk to God the way you talk to your best friend.

  4. Keep on the theme. Pray through one subject before introducing another. Obviously, that doesn`t mean we have to see the mountain moved into the sea before proceeding to the next subject, but we do need to give God time to speak concerning the subject in hand before moving on. When not praying aloud, quietly support the one who is. Don`t let your mind wander.

  5. Don`t take "pot-shots" at the devil. Jude verse 9 tells us that even the archangel Michael did not dare to condemn the devil for slander, but said, "The Lord rebuke you." Rather we are told to `resist the devil` (James 4:7) and to: `put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil`s schemes` (Ephesians 6:11).

  6. Avoid personal pronouns. When speaking for the group say "We" rather than "I". Of course, if there is doubt about agreement on an issue, that should be settled before praying on behalf of all.

  7. Good repetition builds the case. Some teaching would indicate that once a thing is prayed for, it is unbelief to mention it again. There is need for balance in this. To keep pleading for something which God has made clear He wants to give us can be unbelief. On the other hand, true intercession is speaking into reality that which is as yet unseen. That usually takes time and repetition. We should not assume that what "worked" on the last prayer project will work on the next. There was a different strategy for different cities as Israel took the land.

  8. Lay aside preconceived ideas. Die to your own imagination. Ask for fresh guidance from the Holy Spirit for this prayer time. We need to cultivate absolute dependence on the Holy Spirit.

  9. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise (Psalm 100:4). Let the high praises of God be in our mouths and a two-edged sword in our hands (Psalm 149:6)
