What some of our leaders are saying!
Jack Hayford - Church on the Way
“To pray for the peace of Jerusalem is to pray, ‘Lord, let your Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth, not only in the ultimate revelation of His King coming from Heaven, but in the present revelation of God's peace as it comes into our hearts in a troubled world, to bring to the heartbeat center of the world, something of a peace that alleviates the tensions, the hatred, the bombings, the torments.”
Bob Bakke - Global Day of Prayer
“With the fearful and seemingly intractable dangers facing our generation and Israel, it is incumbent upon all Christians to plead with God for the outpouring of his mercy and for the establishment of a joyous and persistent ‘shalom’ throughout all the land of the Bible. May the Lord answer our prayers. May the seed of Abraham know God and the grace and power of his hand.”
John Paul Jackson - Streams Ministry International
"We would do well to heed and believe with the apostle Paul when he penned, “If their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring.” We must pray for the peace of Jerusalem, that their fullness might be fulfilled."
Kay Arthur - Precept Ministries
"God’s mandate is recorded for us in the book of Isaiah. We are to give Him no rest until He establishes Jerusalem, His earthly Zion, as a praise in all the earth. The mandates of God are to be obeyed. How then can we excuse ourselves?"
Phil Miglioratti - National Pastors Prayer Network
"Many of us have ignored God’s call to pray for this globally strategic city. May this Day of Prayer be God’s way of focusing our attention for a Christ awakening in all sectors of Jerusalem."
Dutch Sheets - Dutch Sheets Ministries
"God is sovereignly aligning many nations and individuals with His redemptive purposes concerning Israel. Do not miss your opportunity to bless them and receive the promised blessing in return."
Dave Butts - Chairman, America's National Prayer Committee
"There is no more urgent call to the whole body of Christ than the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem. This prayer movement blends the dynamic of tomorrow's headlines with the imperative of praying God's Word back to Him."
