Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast to bless Israel coming to Orlando

 

November 2, 2018

Ambassador Danny Danon

Jews and Christians are instructed to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122). For those who love and support Israel, and are looking for a way to show that support, there will be a Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast Nov. 14-16 at the Rosen Plaza, located at 9700 International Drive, Orlando. This will be the third worldwide prayer breakfast since it began in June 2017 at the Israeli Knesset, and the first in Orlando.

The first Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast was sponsored by Speaker of the Knesset Yuli-Yoel Edelstein and Members of the Knesset Robert Ilatov (Beiteinu party and chairman of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus) and Rabbi Yehuda Glick. Five-hundred-and-seventy world delegates from 58 nations attended the event.

The second annual Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast was also held in Jerusalem in June 2018. Government leaders and influential Christian leaders from all walks of society gathered in Israel's capital city to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Once again, Orthodox Rabbi Yehuda Glick, gave an official greeting and welcome to more than 650 delegates from 70 nations, stating, "I'm so excited that today we have Christians from 70 nations in Jerusalem, our capital, to pray for the peace of Jerusalem!" 

Attendees of the first prayer breakfast wanted to bring the opportunity for this movement to come to Orlando. Blake Lorenz, pastor of Encounter Global Outreach, Orlando and organizer of the Orlando event, sees the need for constant prayer for Israel. This prayer breakfast will inspire lovers of Israel.

Prayer Breakfast sponsor Bridges for Peace stated on its website: "We live in perilous times as the nations are again seeking to solve their problems by accusing the Jewish people. We have seen the latest UNESCO resolution that not only denied the Temple Mount's Jewish ties but also portrayed the Western Wall as a Muslim holy site. Twenty-four nations voted in favour of the motion, 26 abstained, and only six countries had the boldness to stand against such a shameful rewriting of history."

Guest speakers at Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast Orlando include Israel Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon; former member of Congress Michele Bachmann; Knesset Member Robert Ilatov; and Albert Veksler, co-founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast, among others.

The Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast will open with a concert on Wednesday evening, Nov. 14, from 7– 9:30. The concert is free and open to the public. Those who wish to stay and attend the prayer breakfast may register and reserve rooms at the Rosen Plaza at a discounted rate.

Michele Bachmann

Thursday morning, registration for the event will begin at 6:30 a.m. and an Ambassador's reception will be held from 8:30 a.m.-9:45 a.m., followed by breakout sessions on How to Bless Israel with Bridges for Peace and Pastor Roger Diaz of Fellowship Church; Aliyah discussion led by Pastor Gary Cristofaro, Mel Hoelzle of Ezra International and Kathy Ardino of Operation Exodus.

Afternoon sessions include talks on Israel's 70th anniversary; How Israel is blessing the nations; and Jonathan Feldstein, an Orthodox Jew who lives in Israel, will talk about combating anti-Semitism. The day will culminate with the Founders' Dinner and guest speaker Michele Bachmann.

Bachmann will again speak at the Friday morning prayer breakfast.

This event is open to Christians and Jews who love and support Israel. There is no evangelism or proselytizing allowed as the focus is completely on praying for and blessing Israel.
