Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast
Jerusalem was reunified following the Six-Day War after 19 years of division. Reunification under Israeli sovereignty ended the religious discrimination and desecration carried out under Jordanian control. Only under Israeli sovereignty have Jerusalem and its holy sites been open to all people. Historically and politically, spiritually and culturally, Jerusalem represents the heart and soul of the Jewish people. We live in perilous times as the nations are again seeking to solve their problems by accusing the Jewish people. We saw how the UNESCO resolution of 2016 not only denied the Temple Mount’s Jewish ties but also portrayed the Western Wall as a Muslim holy site. Twenty-four nations voted in favor of the motion, 26 abstained, and only six countries had the boldness to stand against such a shameful rewriting of history. When President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6, 2017, the General Assembly of the UN hurried to condemn the legitimate decision made by the government of the United States. The first annual Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast was a great success – we had 570 delegates from 58 nations. The miracle of the rebirth of the state of Israel is still unfolding and we invite you to be a part of it. Psalm 122:6 says: pray for the peace [and wholeness] of Jerusalem – may they prosper that love you!
