As I prayed on Mount Calvary last week, God put this verse in my heart for you

"As I was praying for you on the very top of Mount Calvary just a few days ago, the words of Jesus leaped in my spirit: “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). I was forsaken and abused by my own father, so these words mean so very much to me, and I felt led to share them with you today. No matter what you have experienced, the love of God will never fail you.
As we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, I wanted you to hear these beautiful words—and remember that He has promised not only to come back for us, but to reward those who serve Him faithfully. Thank you so much for being part of the Jerusalem Prayer Team and helping us as we stand with and for the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Our work to defend Israel and the Jewish people through prayer is so vital right now. I spent last week in Israel as your ambassador to encourage a nation in crisis. I ask that you join me in prayer for the peace of Jerusalem, and I ask that you stand with us financially right now. We will be caring for the poor of Israel, especially the elderly Holocaust survivors, all through the Passover week from your home in the Holy City, the Jerusalem World Center, and we must continue this great prayer movement on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people.
Passover is a holy and sacred time of year. The week-long Feast of Unleavened Bread is a celebration of God’s deliverance and protection for His people, but for the poor and hungry, especially for the elderly Holocaust survivors, it is anything but a happy time.

Today I’m asking you to help us provide food for the entire week of Passover for these precious people. I have been in Jerusalem to represent you as we share the message of hope and Christian love with them. Your gift today will provide meals for the hungry—meeting one of their most urgent needs. We will continue to distribute food and help throughout this festive week. Please send your gift today to bless the Holocaust survivors of Jerusalem and the poor of the house of Israel.
With your gift of $40 or more, we will send you this beautiful set of coasters. Made especially for members of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, these blue and white coasters show the Star of David and the word “peace.” Every time you use them, you will be reminded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.       

When you send your gift of $100 or more, we will send you the coasters and a copy of the photo from Auschwitz that I received in Israel last week. This incredible picture will be a constant reminder to you to continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the protection of Israel, as well as a great way to share the need for our prayers with everyone who sees it. I treasure this picture greatly, and I know you will treasure yours as well.       
Your support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team allows us to continue our work on the Christian Zionist Heritage Center, to stand up and speak out for Israel, and to meet urgent humanitarian needs among the poor Jewish people living in Israel. Thank you so much for being part of this vital worldwide prayer movement.

Barukh atah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, ozier Yisrael bigvurah.
Blessed art thou, Lord our God, King of the universe, who girds Israel with might.
Your ambassador to Jerusalem,
Dr. Mike Evans"
