On Thursday, June 6, Rabbi Tuly Weisz spoke to the participants of the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast- a global gathering the nations to align themselves in prayer with God’s purposes for Israel and Jerusalem.
The purpose of this annual event is to answer God’s command and the Knesset’s call to the nations to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the prosperity of Israel.
The Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast is a prayer movement initiated and chaired by Knesset Member Robert Ilatov, and co-chaired by U.S. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Each year the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast brings together government leaders and influential Christian leaders from all walks of society for a gathering in Israel’s capital city to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Reading from The Israel Bible, Rabbi Tuly Weisz highlighted the significance of events such as the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast in which non-Jews declare their support for the Jewish Biblical, legal, and historical right to Jerusalem.
“It is clear that the governments and leaders of Israel and the U.S. value the importance of the spiritual connection between evangelicals and the Jewish state,” Rabbi Weisz said. “Everyone was there to pray; to call out to God to protect Jerusalem. The representatives called on their governments to take part in order to bring blessings upon their country.”
