From God’s word – Prayers for Israel and Isaiah 62 Fast


By Toni Ford

If anyone knows me, they know I become a bit passionate when talking about Israel, both the land and the people and the impact they’ve had on my spiritual life.

My life was forever changed in 2011 when I took my first trip to Israel. I came home from that trip and began my search in Scripture, wanting to learn what God said about Israel and His people. Ever since then, my love and passion for learning more about the land, the people and the heart of our Father towards Israel has only grown deeper over the years. So much so that I continue to return to Israel almost every year.

Those journeys eventually led to leading my own trips to the Holy Land, because I long for others to see and experience the land and the people as I have been privileged to do so over the years.

Due to my love for Israel, I wanted to take the time and share about the “21 Prayers for Israel and the Isaiah 62 Fast” that is taking place from May 7-28. Mike Bickle is leading this prayer and fast for Israel, and over five million people across the world are joining in daily to pray for Israel and fast according to how the Lord leads. You can find out more details by visiting or by connecting to the Mike Bickle App.

Some may question the purpose of praying and fasting for Israel. In Zechariah 8:2-3, Scripture tells us that the Lord loves Jerusalem and is very zealous for Jerusalem. Throughout Scripture, we read prophecies concerning Israel and the nations that often have two fulfillments – a partial fulfillment history and a complete fulfillment at the end of the age. In Isaiah 62:6-7, the Lord promises that He has given to Israel and His people, and our prayers are a way of agreeing and reminding the Lord of His promises. I would love for you to join me and millions of others in praying for Israel daily over the next couple of weeks.

Below are the 21 Days of Prayer Points for Israel.
