The Isaiah 62 Global 21-Days of Prayer and Fasting (May 7-28, 2023)

Join over 1 million believers who will engage in prayer for Israel for at least one hour a day for 21 days (May 7-28) for the increase of God’s salvation promises and plans for Jerusalem and Israel. Some will pray alone and others will pray with 2 or more (Mt. 18:20)—virtually or in-person—in their home, office, dorm, or at their church, etc.

A collaboration of several thousand ministries are calling 1 million believers to participate in a global solemn assembly (May 7-28)to fast in various ways and to pray for the Lord’s purposes for Israel AND to ask Him to raise up 100 million intercessors for Israel according to His promise in Isaiah 62:6 to sovereignly “set,” “appoint,” or “mark” intercessors who will remind the Lord of His promises for Jerusalem until Jesus returns. Isaiah 62:6 is an end-time promise that is now escalating across the earth.

6On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed [set, KJV] watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You [intercessors] who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; 7And give Him no rest until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth [at Jesus’ return]. (Isa. 62:6-7, NAS)

In the first 3 weeks of announcing this fast on March 7, over 1,000,000 are set to participate in various ways. By May 7, far more than 1 million who will engage in this 21-day fast in various ways (some will fast on water, some on vegetables, or juices, or taking one meal a day, and some will “fast media” instead of food, etc.).

Believers hold various eschatological positions. The Isaiah 62 website does not address any eschatological position. It invites believers of all positions to pray 21 days for Jerusalem and Israel.

The IHOPKC prayer room is committed to worship and pray non-stop 24/7 for 3 weeks (May 7-28) for Israel. Over 300 on the IHOPKC full-time ministry staff have personally committed to be in our prayer room for 6-12 hours a day for all 21 days. I am grateful for their response to lay aside many of their normal responsibilities to do this! The IHOPKC prayer room is only one of many HUBs engaging in this. For more info on how your church or ministry can be a HUB see or the Isaiah 62 Fast Facebook page.

The website identifies churches, ministries, Bible studies, youth groups, etc. that desire to be a “HUB” that provides ministry resources, regular communication, etc. in mobilizing others for 21 days (May 7-28).

Israel’s national repentance (Act 3:19) and confession that Jesus is Messiah (Mt. 23:39) is deeply connected to Jesus’ second coming, the Great Commission, and “life from the dead” for the whole earth (Rom. 11:15).

This will be the first time in history that far more than 1 million will continue 24 hours a day for 21 days in praying for God’s promises for Israel. The uniqueness of this prayer initiative is itself a sign of the times and an acceleration of God’s “set time for a generation yet to be created” to engage together in His purposes for Israel (Ps. 102:13, 18).

13You will…have mercy on Zion [Jerusalem]; the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come… 18This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord. (Ps. 102:13-18)

This 21-day fast is a “global Esther moment” (Esth. 4:14-16) that will be a significant down payment for the final ultimate global Esther moment when millions of believers will engage in prayer, speak out boldly for God’s purposes for Israel (as seen in Scripture), and stand with Israel as anti-Semitism increases until Jesus returns (Zech. 14:1-5). This fast is also important for today as Israel faces several very significant conflicts.

14“For if you remain silent [unresponsive] at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place…who knows if you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” 15Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: 16“Go, gather all the Jews…and fast for me…My maids and I will fast …so I will go to the king…and if I perish, I perish!” (Esth. 4:14-16)

Why 100 million Intercessors for Israel is a Reality

God has given various people the number 100 million intercessors over the years in prophetic encounters. Eric Watt, Jason Hubbard (IPC), and team have visited IHOPKC a number of times over recent years. They represent and communicate regularly with leaders that oversee 5,000+ prayer networks that collectively include 130 million believers (at first I found those numbers hard to believe). In their recent visit (Dec. 2022), they shared that the leaders of these 5,000+ prayer networks and the 130 million intercessors connected to them will stand together to pray for the same area of the earth 4 times in 2023 in a global mission initiative called I am overwhelmed as I consider that this is the first time in history that over 100 million believers will pray for the same geographical area together on the same day (see Jn. 17:21-23).

These 100 million prayed for China on January 22, 2023. They will pray for the Middle East on April 17, for Israel on May 28, and for India on October 31. These 100 million believers are deeply committed to Jesus and to the Great Commission, but many of them are not yet connected to the Lord’s biblical purpose for Israel. But for one day (May 28, 2023) 100 million will pray for Israel as they did for China on January 22. But for 21 days leading up to May 28, 1 million+ intercessors will fast and pray asking the “Holy Spirit to ambush” them by marking the hearts of these 100 million for His purposes for Israel.

Summary: In this Isaiah 62 Fast, thousands of ministries will host daily prayer meetings with fasting— together we will mobilize over 1 million+ to pray for Israel AND for the Spirit to mark 100 million intercessors on May 28 to see God’s heart for Israel. IHOPKC is only one of many HUBs hosting this Isaiah 62 Fast. Also see the Isaiah 62 Fast Facebook page.
