The reconciliation, restoration & healing of Cyprus
A very good summary of the
historical and current situation of the Cyprus problem – a divided nation - is
found on a YouTube The title is: ‘The Unsinkable Aircraft Carrier. Cyprus
Dispute Explained.’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHlHnCwFp5c (15 min. See LHS videos column).
It will help you to understand the problem and pray into it with new heart. Ultimately, God will look for the Church North and South to stand in the gap together.
We maintain the vision of a national day of prayer over this Cyprus problem, preceded by examination of all our lives as Christians and churches in Cyprus (N & S) before God, and resulting repentance. Keep in prayer for such a key day to come about! (2 Chronicles 7v13-14 & James 5v7-8 &v17).

NB. We publish a monthly prayer update for Cyprus. Some read this as a newspaper to get an overview of what is happening currently in Cyprus. Out of this their prayers are born. Others pray through it day by day, others topically. We hold weekly IFC prayers in Larnaca including prayer for Cyprus’ government, churches, ministries & for refugees. Others weekly e.g. Prayer for Israel. We encourage you to subscribe and use the update in your home group, prayer group, church prayers, and devotionals. Use it topically or work through it over the month. Tip: Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you to an entry He wants you to pray into. Focus on that (also in your group) until you sense completion.
NOTE: If you know of others who you think may wish to use the IFC prayer update and subscribe, please let IFC have their names and email and we will send a personal invitation. Bless you all. Yassas, αντίο and shalom. The IFC team

The meaning of 'Intercessor'
The meaning of 'Intercessor'
Intercession is an activity in prayer which causes a response in the heart of God to meet those who are the object of the prayer. It is a selfless act on behalf of others and motivated by love for God and for people. People who intercede are intercessors.
The great Intercessor is the Lord Himself, for example when there was no-one else who could bring about a change in Israel (Isaiah 59v16; Ezekiel 22v30, also Hebrews 7v25). Yet He also has His people populating the earth who can make a difference through their intercessions on behalf of others in His name.
‘Intercession’ in the Old Testament Hebrew word ‘pagah’ means, ‘to encounter, to meet, reach, make intercession, entreat’. It is a strong word: ‘to assail one, to strike upon one with petitions’, ‘to rush on someone with hostile violence’, ‘to strongly urge upon someone a request’, perhaps reflected in the persistent widow of Luke 18v1-8.
‘Intercession’ in the New Testament Greek word ‘Entugchano’ means, ‘to light upon a person or a thing, fall in with, hit upon a person or a thing’. It is active and strong. (In the New Testament Greek word ‘enteuxis’ it means,’a falling in with, a meeting with, a coming together’. This is more of a conversation or conference on a matter.)
In 1 Timothy 2v1, Paul exhorts intercessionary prayer. Perhaps God is calling you to stand in the gap on behalf of others? It is a ministry which is not in the limelight, but precious to God. Our monthly Prayer Updates for Cyprus on this website will give you direction and food for thought and prayer. God bless you!

So, in summary, before the throne of God, we plead, mediate, intercede and stand in the gap on behalf of other people and situations.. ..as does Jesus for us!
(Hebrews 7v24-25) '...because Jesus lives for ever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
Job 16v19-20: Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. 20 My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; 21 on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend.
See also: 1 Samuel 12v23; 1 Kings 18v36-37; Luke 12; Matthew 5v44; 1 Timothy 2v1, Psalm 106v23 & v30.
“Intercessory prayer isn’t only submitting our list of our requests to God, but the willingness to go out and be available if God wants to use me in answering them. It is an expression of our relationship with God and with others.”
Jesus taught us from his own example that at times he would have been found “...crying aloud and shedding tears...” (Hebrews 5:7)
During His life on earth, Jesus was a true Intercessor, always standing in the gap. He still intercedes in Heaven for His beloved servants. “The word “intercede” comes from the Latin “inter” meaning “between” and “ced” meaning “go”. So it literally means “go between”. The Hebrew word for intercede is “hifgia”. Yuval Shomron from Jerusalem says, “The root behind the Hebrew “hifgia”, or intercede, is “paga”, which means “touched”. The same root is in used “pigua” which is the Hebrew word for a terrorist attack. The only way someone can actually intercede is to lay their lives down for someone else. When we intercede for one another, our chief purpose is to fill in those gaps (for Israel) and hold up (Israel) so the enemy can’t gain an advantage over them. Likewise, when we fail to intercede for one another, we’re virtually giving the key to that person’s spiritual house to his/her enemies for them to wreak havoc. .
