Six million Christian children to pray for Israel on Purim
Jerusalem Post ^ | February 28, 2007 | MATTHEW WAGNER

Posted on 02/28/2007 6:39:54 PM PST by West Coast Conservative

Inspired by a kabbalist rabbi, an Evangelical leader from Ft. Worth, Texas, plans to enlist the "pure hearted prayers" of six million Christian children worldwide to protect the Jewish people from the Iranian nuclear threat.

The prayer rally will take place before Purim, a holiday that commemorates the redemption through divine intervention of the Jewish people from an evil Persian ruler about 2,500 years ago. Purim starts on Saturday evening.

Michael D. Evans, best-selling author of The American Prophecies: Ancient Scriptures Reveal Our Nation's Future, said on Monday evening that the inspiration for his idea from a report in The Jerusalem Post.

"After reading about Rabbi [David Batzri's] campaign to enlist 10,000 children to pray that God annul [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad's plans for the destruction of the Jewish people, I said to myself, 'Why stop at 10,000?'" Evans said in a telephone interview from his Jerusalem hotel room.

"The number six million is a reminder to Christians that never again must we allow a Holocaust," he said. "And since the young suffer most in times of catastrophe, it is fitting that children should be the ones praying."

Evans, who heads the Jerusalem Prayer Team, an Internet-based initiative to encourage Christian prayer for the State of Israel, said that Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell would undoubtedly join forces to muster the 6 million young prayers. Evans said that there were approximately 1 billion evangelical Christians worldwide.

Rabbi Yitzhak Batzri, son of David, welcomed the initiative.

"Hopefully, it will awaken the entire world to the Iranian threat," said Batzri. "If the goyim have come to the realization that we are in danger, maybe the Jews in the Diaspora will finally wake up."

Sounds good to me! I know about Purim because when SirKit was in Grad School, we were good friends with a another couple, Tom who shared an office with my hubby, and his wife, Nancy, who is Jewish. Her Grandma Gruber sent her Hamentashen every year for Purim, and when Nancy told her how much I liked them, she always sent extra for me. ;o)

It's hard to forget the terror bombing of a Purim party in Israel during Arafat's reign of terror.

Blessings on all those who will pray for innocent lives to be free from terror.

Given the population in FL, there's GOT TO BE a Jewish bakery around somewhere!

While thousands of Hassidic Jews the world over will be drinking alcohol until they cannot tell the difference between saying "Bless Mordechai" and "Curse Haman."

Really. This is the only holiday where you're supposed to get drunk.
