Daughters For Zion (DFZ) is the prayer ministry under the umbrella of Christians United For Israel(CUFI), a national association through which every pro-Israel church, parachurch organization, ministry, or individual in America can speak and act with one voice in support of Israel in matters related to biblical issues.
Daughters For Zion was formed to undergird CUFI with prayer by establishing state prayer directors who oversee prayer leaders in their state congressional districts. Their purposes in prayer are to:
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
Pray for the well being of the State of Israel
Pray for the growth and development of Christians United For Israel
Pray for those in authority, including governmental and spiritual positions
In August 2007, Pastor John Hagee had it on his heart to implement a national prayer network who would pray for Israel, America, and Christians United For Israel. He asked Pastor Lynne Hammond to lead it. Pastor Lynne agreed and within days, the Daughters For Zion Prayer Network began.
The purpose of the Daughters For Zion Prayer Network (DFZ) is to organize prayer groups in America to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, the well-being of the State of Israel, the growth and development of Christians United For Israel, and other prayer efforts that come from the national director. The DFZ network is for all pray-ers.
The vision of Daughters For Zion is to organize prayer groups in every city in the nation. These prayer groups can take place in a church, a home, an office, or any environment conducive to worshipful prayer.
