Shalom and greetings from Jerusalem!

Thank you for signing up to receive the daily posts from Lunch Time Prayer
for Israel.

In these turbulent times, praise and prayer are our primary weapons of warfare.
Never believe that your prayer is not important, your one minute of prayer CAN
make a difference!

We chose to pray at lunch time because so often we are with or around other
people. You will be amazed how many will join you in prayer if you just ask them.
Soon they too will be joining.

    I have just been made aware of your website, today, through Jan Markell’s
    OLIVETREE MINISTRIES. I have been a supporter of her mininstry for quite sometime.

    I support prayer for Israel ,and have been for since 1987. Since this date I have copied and distributed the CHRISTIAN FRIENDS OF ISRAEL, monthly Prayer Letter , to people in my church and surrounding churches. I do my best to help people understand the prayer needs of Israel and support her however they can. I am a member of Lighthouse Christian Fellowship and for the past six months. I have also been attending Beth Echad Congregation (on Sat mornnings) to learn all I can.

    Would like to be a part of praying at 12:30pm for Israel.

      Shirley, I’m very to learn of your prayer support for Israel. You have the heart of God. I’d like to send you some refrigerator magnets to give out to your friends and churches. j

  12. Marika says:

    The scripture teaches us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I’m so glad you organized this as a daily reminder to do so. Praise The Lord! He is faithful. Hallelujah! Maranatha!

  13. Cees says:

    Together we will be a wall around the Jewes people, that is our goal.
    We as Christians are in these days the only friends from Israel.Watch and you will see it.
    Every country will leave the Jews, but we will satnd behind you.
    I am happy that I can be involved.
    Shaolm Israel

      Dear dear Cees, thank you so much. Yes, even our friends will scatter unless the Holy Spirit gives His grace. Israel is a watershed even among the Body.

  14. Teri says:

    How can we not pray for Israel if we truly love the Lord our God? Thank you for your commitment to encouraging prayer for Israel and God’s chosen people. I celebrate the Messiah and I pray for the Holy Land from whence He came.

    • joanie says:

      Teri, your love and commitment to the Lord results in your love and prayers for Israel. Thank you so very much. May Yeshua be gloried in our lives, in Israel and in the Church!

  15. Barb says:

    JUST discovered you through dear Jan Markell. I am delighted to be on board and to be in obedience to the Lord to be praying for His people and land. “Those who honor me I will honor” I Sam. 2:30 I would like to have some magnets, please.

  16. David says:

    I’m from Cape Town, South Africa. I’ve just been on a week-long Israel Foundational Program offered by Bridges for Peace. Absolutely awesome to discover our Hebraic Roots and our role as believers in having to actively support Israel. We as Christians should be celebrating Shabbat and some of the Feasts. The program covered the media onslaught against Israel as well as the Muslim aggression. I visited the Holocaust Museum in Cape Town and was saddened by the senseless persecution and loss of life during the Holocaust. I continue to pray for Israel and God’s protection over the nation.

    • joanie says:

      David you are SO right! To help Christians understand what the feasts are all about and their personal significance, I wrote, “Celebrate Jesus! The Christian Perspective of the Biblical Feasts.” It’s available on If they won’t ship to South Africa, let me know and I’ll have our bookstore send it directly. I’m working on a new blog: I’ve also done a few videos on You Tube. Just enter my name: Joan Lipis and enjoy!

      Please keep in touch.

      Thank you for the encouragement. Please share with your friends and church family. We want to see this get into every highway and byway…regardless when people pray!

  19. Kay says:

    I have been a supporter of Israel since I was a teen. I am now 71. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and pray for the peace of Jerusalem every day and long for Zion, the habitation of God and the new heavens and new earth as His glory fills the earth as waters that cover the sea. I am praying for God to raise up watchmen on the walls, for the Holy Spirit to be poured out on all flesh. Joel 3.
    May God richly bless your work.

  20. Pat Smith says:
