Jerusalem Prayer Team

"Today, God drew me to Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things we hope for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].” John 16:33 declares, “In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” (Amplified Bible)
There is no battle that you and I can win in the physical realm until we have won it through faith in the spirit realm. To fight and win that battle, you and I have over 6,000 promises from God's Word that are “yes and amen in Christ Jesus.” The Jerusalem Prayer Team is fighting the battle for Israel’s survival in this most crucial arena—the spiritual battlefield. When you give to support this work, you are part of blessing what God wants blessed…and you are placing yourself in position for the kind of blessing God described through the prophet Isaiah:
    This is the kind of fast day I'm after: to break the chains of injustice, get rid of exploitation in the workplace, free the oppressed, cancel debts. What I'm interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families. Do this and the lights will turn on, and your lives will turn around at once.

Your righteousness will pave your way. The God of glory will secure your passage. Then when you pray, God will answer. You'll call out for help and I'll say, “Here I am.” If you get rid of unfair practices, quit blaming victims, quit gossiping about other people's sins, If you are generous with the hungry and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out, Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness, your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight. I will always show you where to go. I'll give you a full life in the emptiest of places—firm muscles, strong bones. You'll be like a well-watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry. (Isaiah 58:6-10, The Message)
Today I am asking you to help us fight and win the most important spiritual battle of our generation. Jerusalem is Ground Zero for spiritual warfare in our world today. It is vital that you and I do our part to not only pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but to speak out in support of Israel's right to her capital city. Every nation that curses Israel will fall under the judging hand of Almighty God. When you have prayed, please send your best gift today so that we can do even more to support, defend and encourage Israel and the Jewish people.

In addition to helping us rally Believers to support Israel, your help will enable us to bring the Christian Zionist Heritage Center to life. We must tell the story of Corrie ten Boom and her family—and so many other wonderful stories of love, sacrifice, courage, support, and devotion—to the nation of Israel. Most Jewish people have never seen an act of kindness from a Christian. Most of them think, as my Jewish mother did, that Christians are the source of hatred, persecution and even death.

You and I know that this is not true, but they will not hear unless we tell them. Your gift today to support the Jerusalem Prayer Team will help us make the Christian Zionist Heritage Center a reality—and touch the future of the entire nation by changing the way they view Christians and showing them God’s love in action. We cannot do this without you. Please be as generous as you can when you send your gift today.
When you send your gift of any amount today, we will send you a DVD of the virtual tour of the ten Boom home and clock shop in Haarlem, Holland.
You will be able to see and hear the story of the “Hiding Place” in a powerful new way. With your gift of $50 or more, we will also add your name or the name of someone special you wish to honor or remember to the special ten Boom Book of Honor in the Christian Zionist Heritage Center.       
If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, we will send you the DVD and this special double-sided commemorative Jerusalem Prayer Team clock. Prepared especially for our friends and supporters, this beautiful timepiece harkens back to the ten Boom’s heritage as clockmakers and links you to our continuing of their work on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people.       
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"
