“…and all the people lifted their hands and responded, ‘Amen! Amen!’ Then they bowed down and worshiped the LORD…” (Nehemiah 8:6)

This picture, taken nearly 150 years ago in 1880, shows early photographic evidence of Jewish worshipers at the Kotel, the Western Wall, the holiest spot in the Holy City of Jerusalem. And for millennia before this photo, Jews gathered at this same spot, the site of the Holy Temple, to bow down and worship the Lord.

Over the past month, The Fellowship took your prayer requests to the Western Wall. In what is one of our favorite Fellowship family traditions – and a true honor and privilege for us – we received thousands of prayer requests from you, our faithful friends who stand for Israel. Thank you for blessing God’s people, and may He bless you. Amen.
