Christian leaders from 56 countries and Israeli leaders celebrate and pray together
for the Peace of Jerusalem at the 1st Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast.
“We are writing a new chapter in the fulfilment of of Isaiah’s
prophecies. You are a part of this chapter” (Yehuda Glick,
Rabbi and Knesset Member) Exactly 50 years
after the reunification of Jerusalem, between 6-8 June, the Jerusalem Prayer
Breakfast as well as other related side events took place in Jerusalem. I had
the honor to be involved in these events as one of the Founders of the Movement of the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast and also on
behalf of the ECPM. The events consisted of an opening meeting in the Israeli
Parliament (the Knesset), a reception at the residence of the President of
Israel, a lunch for Members of (European) Parliament organized by the ECPM in
collaboration with the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC) and the Israel
Allies Foundation (IAF), a concert with (Jewish) Psalms and Christian worship,
the Prayer Breakfast and the Closing Dinner. The last day, an excursion was
organized to visit a future project in the pioneers’ city of Arad.
