The Jerusalem Prayer Team’s mission is to build Friends of Zion to guard defend and protect the Jewish people and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Our goal is to enlist 10 million people in America and around the world to pray daily and 250,000 houses of worship praying weekly for the peace of Jerusalem.

The Prayer Team also raises funds to meet humanitarian needs of the Jewish people in Israel providing coats, blankets and shelter for those in need. The ministry has a website that includes articles about the people of Israel, the problems being faced by her leaders and other pertinent topics.

Members are also invited to post their prayers for Israel and the Jewish people on “prayer walls” that are actually web pages with hundreds of prayers uploaded by people all over the world.

Evans arranged an exclusive interview on Fox News Network with Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during the 65th U.N. General Assembly in New York City in September 2010.

On July 13, 2007, Evans appeared on MSNBC debating with Arianna Huffington and Pat Buchannan while discussing his book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq. Evans wrote The Final Move Beyond Iraq because he believed that an Islamic revolution would sweep the Middle East using “democracy” as a tool to game the system, as this quote from the back cover reads: “An Islamic revolution is spreading and is on the brink of becoming America’s greatest threat since the Civil War.” That discussion can be viewed HERE.
