After an inspiring worship service in 1844, Willem Ten Boom started a weekly prayer service to pray for the Jewish people and the peace of Jerusalem. His son Casper continued the tradition of prayer with his own family. These prayer meetings continued for 100 years-until February 28, 1944, when Nazi soldiers arrested Casper and his entire family for hiding Jews. The Ten Boom family was prepared years in advance for their powerful calling as they kept faithfully praying for God's purposes for Jerusalem.
This call to pray for the peace of Jerusalem is deeply connected to the prayer Yeshua taught his disciples to pray "Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven". Our prayers play a vital role in the process of God establishing His home on earth. Keep praying!
