PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
MEDIA RELEASE: THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 29, 2011
GOD TV urges viewers to stand with Israel this Sunday via two timely broadcasts: the ‘Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem’ and ‘Israel Is Forever’.
GOD TV founders Rory & Wendy Alec have extended their stay in Israel to present this weekend’s ‘Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem’ LIVE on the GOD Channel and followed by a replay of ‘Israel is Forever’, the worship celebration recorded last week as part of the Kim Clement GOD TV 2011 Israel Tour.
DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM WITH ROBERT STEARNS
GOD TV will once again broadcast the annual Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem, held on the first Sunday of October. Founded by Jack Hayford and Robert Stearns in 2002 this event is endorsed by over 1,200 Christian leaders and 200,000 churches and is an urgent call to intercede for God’s purposes to come to pass in His Holy City. It airs LIVE on the GOD Channel on October 2 at 9.45 am (EST).
Rory & Wendy Alec will introduce the broadcast from GOD TV’s Broadcast HQ in Jerusalem, crossing to Robert Stearns at the Haas Promenade overlooking the city. The program will include prayers from Arab, Jewish and Christian believers, interspersed with worship and dance. Participating ministries include Bridges for Peace, the International Christian Embassy, Jerusalem; Christ Church, Jerusalem and Succat Hillel. The deputy mayor of Jerusalem, Naomi Tsur and Gila Gamliel of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus will represent the Israeli Government.
As the founders of the only Christian broadcaster to transmit from Jerusalem, Rory & Wendy have expressed concern for all the people of the Middle East. “The Jewish and the Palestinian people have both suffered so much and it is crucial for us to pray for peace to come to this region,” said GOD TV CEO, Rory Alec. “At the same time we are concerned about the unilateral Palestinian bid for Statehood at the UN and it being based on Israel returning to ‘1967 borders,’ which means the division of Jerusalem. GOD TV supports a unified Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty to ensure free access for all people.”
“Jerusalem shall not be divided,” said GOD TV Director of Television, Wendy Alec. “It does not belong to anyone but God and He has chosen to give it to the Jewish people. God promises that those who bless Israel will be blessed and commands us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. The crisis over Jerusalem will only be resolved through prayer.”
‘ISRAEL IS FOREVER’ – with KIM CLEMENT and MAYOR OF JERUSALEM, NIR BARKAT
‘Israel Is Forever’, recorded LIVE at David’s Citadel is one of GOD TV’s most high profile broadcasts to date having been re-broadcast by other networks and sponsored by the Israel Ministry of Tourism (www.goisrael.com) and IGT Tours (www.igt-tours.co.il). An outstanding worship experience, it includes everything from an operatic rendition of ‘Jerusalem, the Holy City’ by Ben & Vera Karlsson to the more contemporary pop sounds of The Arrows, followed by prophetic worship led by Kim Clement and his band.
The program includes an interview with the Mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat who tells Rory & Wendy Alec how much he appreciates the support of Christians worldwide. “There’s room for people of all faiths to come and visit and go back as ambassadors of peace, to share how beautiful, spiritual and cultural Jerusalem is!” he said. Viewers will also be challenged by Pastor Fiona Des Fontaine’s message on the prophetic significance of Israel: “Jerusalem is the central location for God’s supremacy to be demonstrated!” she says.
Kim Clement is known for music that transcends culture, race and religion, and a prophetic ministry that attracts a broad spectrum of people. Hearts will also be stirred by his prophetic declarations, including ‘Israel Is Forever!’ “God saw this moment in time, when a mantle would be cast upon a generation,” says Kim Clement. “This is the beginning of a global outpouring of God’s Spirit that will start in Jerusalem and spread throughout the earth.”
Israel Is Forever will air on the GOD Channel on October 2 at 12pm (EST) and is available for video on demand viewing at http://www.god.tv/israel.
