Anne Graham-Lotz: ‘Time to turn to God and thank Him’

JERUSALEM, Israel – Christian leaders from around the world came to Jerusalem recently for what’s become a major annual event, the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast (JPB).

CBN News interviewed three key participants in this year’s gathering: Israeli Knesset member Robert Ilatov, chairman of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus, the committee that promotes relations with the Christian world and initiated the event; Albert Veksler, co-founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast; and Anne Graham Lotz of AnGel Ministries.

The JPB is a prayer movement that brings together government leaders and influential Christians from around the world for a gathering in Israel’s capital to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6).

According to JPB’s website, the vision of the prayer initiative is to mobilize the Church worldwide to join in the “gathering the nations to align themselves in prayer with God’s purposes for Israel and Jerusalem,” thereby answering “God’s command and the Knesset’s call to the nations to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the prosperity of Israel.”
