Why pray for the peace in Jerusalem?
We pray for peace in Jerusalem because the Scriptures tell us to in Psalm 122:6. Also, the Great Commission proclaims that we would be a witness unto Him in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria. Praying for peace and protection for those who are experiencing the same type of terror that was experienced in America on September 11, 2001 is a way to be a witness.
What ever happened to Corrie Ten Boom?
Corrie ten Boom received many tributes following her imprisonment by the Nazi's after she and her family were charged for protecting nearly 800 Jews. Following the war, the Queen of Holland honored Corrie as a War Hero. In 1968, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem asked Corrie to plant a tree in the Garden of Righteousness, in honor of the many Jewish lives her family saved. Her tree stands there today. In the early 1970s, Corrie's book, THE HIDING PLACE became a best seller, and Billy Graham and World Wide Pictures released it as a the major motion picture. Corrie ten Boom went on to write many other inspiring books. There are five evangelical videos about her life. She was a woman faithful to God, who died on her 91st birthday, April 15, 1983.

Sometimes overlooked, the Corrie ten Boom family held a longstanding 100-year tradition of prayer meetings in their home to intercede for the restoration of Israel and for the "peace of Jerusalem" (Psalm 122:6). That prayer meeting ended when the ten Boom family was carted off to die in the Nazi gas chambers during the Holocaust, but Corrie survived. And their prayer meeting inspired the birth of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, so that their unwavering tradition of prayer may also continue. Most recently, the Jerusalem Prayer Team has launched the Corrie ten Boom Museum Virtual Tour online at, so you can visit the Ten Boom house and the Hiding Place in Haarlem, Holland via 360-degree internet technology.
