Pray With Us
At the ICEJ we believe prayer is the engine of our ministry and should touch every part of what we are doing in Israel and around the world! We want you, our partners, to engage with us in prayer via our multiple different prayer initiatives throughout the month and make the maximum impact in praying for God’s land and His people in these trying times.
There are two opportunities to be part of the ICEJ family in prayer.
Isaiah 62 Global Prayer Gathering
The first opportunity is the weekly Isaiah 62 gathering.
ISAIAH 62 is a unique passage in the scriptures because it calls upon the people of God to give Him no rest until He establishes Jerusalem as “a praise in the earth” (Isaiah 62:6-7).
Like Watchman on the walls of Jerusalem the people of God are to stand watch on behalf of Israel. This essentially means embracing regular prayer and intercession for Israel, for blessing, for protection against those that seek to harm her and for her redemption.
This call to prayer also means praying for the Arab nations in the region that they too would be blessed and delivered from the chaos that presently besets the region. The scripture commands us…
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” ~Psalm 122:6
You may join Jerusalem each Thursday 4pm Israel time, as the leadership, respected Christian pastors and ministry leaders from Israel and worldwide are brought together for a time of prayer and worship. You can also download the monthly prayer points for your own prayer or for use in an Isaiah 62 group. Contact the office if you are interested in forming an Isaiah 62 prayer group.

Rosh Chodesh Global Prayer Gathering
The second opportunity to join the global prayer is a monthly one that begins at the start of each new Biblical month when the new moon appears. This festival of the new moon, or Rosh Chodesh, was given to the Jewish people at Mt Sinai. Special sacrifices were to be offered to mark the beginning of the new month (Numbers 28: 11-15). It also became a time when the Israelites would consult the Hebrew prophets (2 Kings 4:23). In addition, this joyous day featured the blast of a trumpet blown on the pinnacle of the Temple in Jerusalem to announce the arrival of the new month. In a similar manner, ICEJ will be ‘blowing the trumpet’ from Jerusalem to call for a special time of prayer and seeking the Lord at the start of each new month.
