Those who know our hometown of Jerusalem know that it’s a crowded, bustling city. One of the most surreal aspects of the coronavirus crisis is seeing the Holy City all but empty. No traffic jams, no pilgrims, no Jewish or Muslim or Christian worshippers packing the holy sites. Just eery silence.

Join us as we pray daily for God’s hand to stop this modern day plague and return life, first and foremost to the city where He chose to place HIS name.

“I have chosen Jerusalem that my name may be there…” (2 Chronicles 6:6)

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! “May they be secure who love you! Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!” (Psalm 122:7)

When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:13-14)
