Here at CFI UK we want to encourage you to pray to the Lord for Israel and the Jewish people across the globe.
You may think you are limited by miles or COVID-19, but that isn’t true. This old poem helps us realise what’s possible:

Travelling on My Knees

Last night I took a journey to a land across the seas.
I didn’t go by ship or plane - I travelled on my knees.

I saw so many people there in bondage to their sin,
And Jesus told me I should go, that there were souls to win.

But I said, “Jesus, I can’t go to lands across the seas.”
He answered quickly, “Yes you can - by travelling on your knees.”

He said, “You pray, I`ll meet the need. You call, and I will hear.
It`s up to you to be concerned for lost souls far and near.”

And so I did; knelt in prayer, gave up some hours of ease,
And with the Saviour by my side, I travelled on my knees.

As I prayed on, I saw souls saved and twisted persons healed,
I saw God`s workers’ strength renewed while labouring in the field.

I said, “Yes Lord, I’ll take the job. Your heart I want to please.
I’ll heed your call and swiftly go by traveling on my knees.”

 In our response, we can carry Israel on the wings of prayer. In these days we really sense this is the time for the Church to stand strong and pray, with a Bible in our hands. We want to see the numbers of those praying for Israel increase massively.

Please pray:

  • For the Jewish people to experience a change of heart and turn in faith to the God of Israel (Jeremiah 24;7 Ezekiel 36:26 Ezekiel 37:14)
  • That God will reveal the truth of the prophecies about the Jewish Messiah and Saviour of the World (Zechariah 12:10)
  • That Jewish people continue to return home to Israel (Ezekiel 37:12 Zechariah 8:7-8)
  • For God to bring true peace to Jerusalem and the whole of the Land of Israel (Psalm 122:6-7)
  • That God’s call to the watchmen in the nations is heeded (Isaiah 62:6-7)
  • For the ministry of Christian Friends of Israel throughout the nations to be blessed with God’s favour – so that the resources of heaven are available for us to press on with all the Father wants us to do. Pray that our literature and social media will be supernatural tools for education – enlightening Christians about the deep truths of our faith that come through our Judaic heritage.
  • Pray for the Christian Church to wake up to these times of shaking and for all believers to give God their attention, so that prayer becomes a priority and they hunger to study of the whole Word of God; and we each have a divine connection with our purposes in the Kingdom.

There rests on every true child of God a responsibility not only to
stand with Israel and the Jewish people but to love them from a pure heart.
Love such as this will lead to the kind of prayer that only the Holy Spirit can give …”

Take time out with God and see what he lays on your heart with regard to this and the scriptures mentioned here.
