" As I prayed for you this morning, God gave me this Scripture for you" - update by Mike Evans

“Dear foolish of me to have called for human help when You are here.” – Corrie ten Boom

"As I was praying for you this morning, the Lord spoke to me to encourage you and gave me this Scripture for you. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

I know this promise is true! Years ago on Thanksgiving Day (which was also my 25th wedding anniversary), I was told that a terrorist was coming to kill me. My entire evangelistic team in the hotel was moved two floors down so they would be spared.

On my 40th birthday, I was told that a terrorist who had already killed two people, including a state trooper, had been arrested—with my name and address and a loaded gun on the front seat of his car.

In 1983 I preached to the Marines in Beirut, Lebanon, and gave them Bibles. A few hours later, a Hezbollah terrorist killed almost 250 of them. I was told I might never get out of Lebanon alive, but an angel of God delivered me.

I know what it is like to let the God of peace guard my heart and mind!

Please say this prayer with me out loud right now—the same prayer I said in those crisis times: “God is greater than I think. God is closer than I think. God is more committed than I think. God is more ambitious than I think.”

In the Mighty Name of Jesus, get up! Don't sit in the dust of your difficulties. Focus today on what you have left, not what you have lost... YOU can do ALL things though Christ who strengthens you!

I believe that God brought you and me together “for such a time as this”—to give our time and energy and effort and resources to stand for and defend Israel and the Jewish people. One of the greatest and most important things that the purchase of the Jerusalem World Center makes possible is the Christian Zionist Heritage Center. The story of Christian love is a story that most Jewish people have never heard. We must tell the story—but we can’t do it without you. I urgently need your help today.

I am praying that God will give us 800 Jerusalem Prayer Team members by today to stand with us in honor of the 800 Jewish people that the ten Booms saved from the Holocaust. I am writing today to ask you to be one of those 800 with your gift to help us make the payment so that the work on the Christian Zionist Heritage Center can continue. So far 755 loving hearts have responded to this need by giving $61,290.
Watch Dr. Evans and Glenn Beck Tell The Story of Corrie Ten Boom

When you send your gift of $30 or more, we will send you Corrie ten Boom’s book The Hiding Place.
This is the riveting account of how Corrie ten Boom and her family were able to save many of God's chosen people during WW II. For 35 years, millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still. Now, The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continues to declare that God’s love will overcome, heal, and restore.       
If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, we will send you this lovely commemorative clock.
Because the ten Booms were watchmakers, even using clock advertisements in their window to send secret messages, this is a great way for you to remember, celebrate, and continue their work. Perfect for your home or office, everyone who sees this beautiful piece will know your love and commitment to God’s Chosen People.       
We are excited about what will be accomplished through the Christian Zionist Heritage Center, but in order for it become a reality, we must quickly raise the funds so that the programming and design work can be done, and we can begin telling these wonderful stories. Please be as generous as you can when you send your gift today.

Your gift of support for the Jerusalem Prayer Team as we stand with and for Israel and the Jewish people is your personal act of love and kindness to bless God’s Chosen People. Your gift today makes it possible for this great worldwide prayer movement to continue at this crucial and prophetic moment in history.

Modeh ani l’faneykha, melekh chai vekayam; rabbah emunatekha.
I thank you, living and eternal King; great is your faithfulness.
Your ambassador to Jerusalem,
Dr. Mike Evans"
