Be a Light: Record a Video Message to Encourage Jerusalem

by | Sep 19, 2012 | Blogs, The Strang Report

I was in New York yesterday and the city was abuzz by the hostility toward Israel at the United Nations, which was meeting there. And the fact our president snubbed the Israeli prime minister to go on a late-night TV show and attend a celebrity fundraiser.

This is a serious time in the history of America, Israel and the world. Yet instead of cursing the darkness, Robert Stearns is lighting a candle. You may remember Robert was recently the guest editor of Ministry Today. You can read the digital issue about “The New Zionism” by clicking here.

He is using the Internet to send video greetings to residents of Jerusalem. The vision: 800,000 greetings for the 800,000 residents of Jerusalem. He asked me to do one, which I just finished. It’s online at keeptree.com/dppi. Now I’m blogging, and sending notices on Twitter and Facebook to let people know.

It’s a pretty big undertaking, but it’s something I can do and maybe my message will encourage those who read it. And you can help, too. Together maybe something significant can happen—a little like how we supported “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” in August when the chain came under attack by homosexual activists.

All this is part of the annual Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem—the largest Jerusalem-focused prayer event in history, involving 175 nations, 300,000 churches and tens of millions of believers committed to praying for peace to come to Jerusalem and all her inhabitants.

Now in its tenth year, the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem takes place annually on the first Sunday of October to raise global awareness and intercession on behalf of Jerusalem.

For the first time since its inception in 2002, participants in the Day of Prayer will be able to record video prayers through KeepTree.com, and these videos will be permanently stored and displayed in a gallery, to be shared with the people of Israel and the world at keeptree.com/dppj.

“This will be the biggest international video exchange of interfaith words of encouragement and prayers in history,” says Stearns, the founder and executive director of Eagles’ Wings, and co-chairman along with Pastor Jack Hayford of the global prayer day.

“Indeed, it will demonstrate to the inhabitants of Jerusalem that they are not alone. And it will provide an opportunity for much-needed healing, as Christians around the world express love and support and our steadfast commitment to see true peace come to Jerusalem and all in the Middle East.”

Jon Loew, founder and CEO of KeepTree LLC, says, “KeepTree.com is proud to support this year’s Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem. As Israel is facing unprecedented threats from its neighbors, we’re encouraging 800,000 people to record video prayers—one for each of the 800,000 inhabitants of Jerusalem—to remind her that she does not stand alone.”

Jerusalem is the birthplace of Western civilization, the spiritual center of Judeo-Christian faith, the axis for religious thought and belief that for centuries has had a broader and ensuing effect on philosophical, cultural, artistic, sociological and political expression.

From today until the Day of Prayer, users can visit keeptree.com/dppj to view videos recorded by respected pastors and believers from around the globe, and then record their own video prayers for the peace of Jerusalem. These video prayers will be posted in a gallery dedicated to the DPPJ on the website.

The Israeli government will then make the citizens of Israel—and of the world—aware that they can visit keeptree.com/dppj and view millions of videos recorded for them—and invite them to REPLY.
