Join multitudes of praying friends
We know that we serve a God Who hears our voices when we call. When there is no one else to run to, He is always there for us in our hour of greatest need. At CFI, for decades we have been asking you in the nations to “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” as commanded in Psalm 122, and there are multitudes of you in the nations who pray.
Praying for the Peace of Jerusalem, however, is not just for Israel and her people. Verse 8 reveals that there is an additional purpose for praying: “For my family and friends, I will say, ‘Peace be with you.’”
When you pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem, you do so for those you love as well. God brings blessing to those who bless the nation of Israel, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Genesis 12 understanding of “I will bless those who bless you” also applies to praying for the nation of Israel and her people. We invite you daily to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all of Israel. We encourage you to find others who will pray with you and join the multitudes around the globe who pray for God’s chosen people─the Jewish nation. (For Zion’s Sake 3rdQ 2017 prayer needs)
God Keeps Covenant

There are so many questions among Christians today concerning the Lord’s relationship with the Jewish people. Why is much of the Church silent on this whole issue? In this book, Wendy D. Beckett reveals God’s love for His chosen people. B23 for $11.00, click here to purchase.
The new Jewish year began with celebrations at sundown on September 20. Sounds of the shofar (ram’s horn) were heard in Jewish communities around the world.
The shofar is often used as an instrument of spiritual warfare. In Numbers 10, sounding a shofar is also a weapon for a battle: “And when you go to war in your land against the adversary who attacks you, then you shall sound an alarm with trumpets; that you may be remembered before the LORD your God, and be saved from your enemies” (Numbers 10:9 NASB).
Those who don’t have a shofar and are not familiar with its use, know that prayers and proclamations are mighty weapons in any war against the schemes of the enemy. When you find yourself in a spiritual battle, consider the following verses as your personal proclamation till you see a victory:
I overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of my testimony, and I do not love my life to the death ( reference to Revelation 12:11 NASB).
No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that accuses me in judgment I will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from You, O Lord ( reference to Isaiah 54:17 NASB).
James 4:7 NABS says: “Submit, therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” The day of victory!
In May 1948, the modern State of Israel was established. It was a miracle that took only one day. It was a historic victory over the Romans, the Nazis, the British Empire and the opposing Arab nations in the region. God in His Word had promised to bring the Jewish people back to their own land, so nothing was able to stand against His plans.
In April 2018, join us in Jerusalem to pray for peace, proclaim God’s promises and call Jews to return to their ancestral land. The enemy has surrounded the tiny state with nations filled with undying hatred and has raised political opposition to Israel in every corner of the world. Come to support and stand in the gap for the Lord’s land!
“May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels. For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your prosperity.” (Psalm 122:6−9)
