Prayer Request at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher

by Jeff White on August 11, 2009

HolyLandPrayers.com introduced a new service in early 2009 providing devout Christians around the world the ability to light a candle or make a prayer request at the holiest place on Earth: the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. HolyLandPrayers.com is located in Jerusalem, just steps from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior was crucified, buried and resurrected.

HolyLandPrayers.com was inspired to provide this prayer request service after meeting American Christians visiting Jerusalem with their church. These new friends said they had been saving money for many years to walk in Jesus’ footsteps and felt a sense of accomplishment when they prayed at the Stone of the Anointing and lit a candle outside Jesus’ tomb. But not everybody is fortunate enough to be able to make it to Jerusalem, so HolyLandPrayers.com has created a prayer request service bringing the holiness of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to all Christians around the world.

prayer request

The experience of being physically inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre cannot be replicated, but HolyLandPrayer.com hopes with their prayer request service they can bring the same hope and solace the Church offers into your home. Walking through the Old City of Jerusalem, inside the city’s walls and the maze of markets, passing numerous churches and the 14 stations of the cross along Via Dolorosa you then enter the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and are immediately taken in by the sense of spirit, faith and healing in the air. Men and women of all ages, all colors and from all countries are moved to tears while they pray at Jesus’ tomb. Not every Christian can make the pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, but you can still connect to the holiness of the site of Jesus’ last moments.

At the Stone of the Anointing where Jesus was prepared for burial visitors place their hands, personal items and crosses on the Stone as they pray over them. HolyLandPrayer.com will take your prayer request, print it out on their special stationary, place it on the Stone and take a picture for you. Around the corner at the walls outside the tomb that encompasses the place where Jesus was buried, they light your candle in honor of your requested person, place or thing and take a photo for you. Each prayer request is guaranteed with a Certificate of Authenticity and they even donate a portion of each order back to the Church for the care and upkeep of the Church. You may not be able to physically make it to spot considered closest to God and Jesus, but your prayer request can get there through HolyLandPrayer.com.

The website has monthly prayer request specials, photos of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and comments from users. The website also has a new shop showcasing special holy relics including holy water, oil, rosary and crosses directly from the Holy Land. Put your prayer request in their hands and let them help you connect with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior at the holiest place on earth.

Please pray that I shall be healed in body, mind, and soul. That I will overcome addictive behavior. That I shall Triumph over that within me that betrays me. That I shall find prosperity, even to a point I can be a help to others. That the Lord will hear me knocking. That I shall see and hear His guiding light. That I truly come to KNOW MYSELF.

Dear Abba,

There’s something inside of me that block Abba’s blessing. It feels like a barrier wanting come out and hurting my chest. I don’t even know what is this. Please heal my heart broken heart, traumatic emotional disorder, shape my character and resist lust from temptation.

Enlarge my heart, clarity and understanding to a bigger tent, I admit I realise it is narrowed, never give bad attitude at work, no more foolish minded and darken heart, longing to be love and belonging.

My heart says something weird about Abba but does not know the Lord very well. It kills every part of me. Renew my heart, spirit and mind and character. Be free from spirit of bondage, old minded set and disappoint easily .Be quick thinker, purify until wholeness complete. Like Abba’s perspective

Unleash my potential and gift from Abba to show my gratitude for Him to please His sight. Take me to the blessing land to get out from my comfort zone to do His glory. I just don’t want just theory and talk. I Got to have action and result.

In Jesus Name. Amen

Dear God, I can no longer endure the malice of my neighbors. Please help me find an affordable place for rent elsewhere where I can live in peace, hopefully with an agreeable roommate for company. If this be your will, thank you.

Marie September 14, 2009 at 8:36 am

I don't know how to believe that God is interested in my prayers or needs. I no longer have the faith that He's interested in answering me according to my needs. His promise of supplying needs seems to be for others. I'm not angry at God, I love Him, and desire to serve Him. I just feel that I'm in an unrequited relationship. I'm afraid to ask God for anything, because I'm afraid of more deadness, and afraid that He's only going to be even less interested in me because of my lack of faith. It is my hope that God will listen to you on my behalf. Thank you so very much.

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

I use the name of almighty God and request you to pray on behalf of my family. Since I got married with my wife things started being so rough to us.We wedded and God blessed our marriage with a son.But financially we should not meet up.

I strongly believed that whoever finds a wife find a good thing and has favour before God. Please pray that we shall have open doors of favour, grace and blessings of God to be in abundance in our life.

Remain blessed

tina September 28, 2009 at 2:28 am

I have been laid off since April 2009, please pray that the Lord deliver me to a job [making the same if not more money--soon], and that he provide me the money to fix and payoff my house. My house is in desperate need of repairs: roof, bathroom, and furnace, windows, front and back porches. MOST IMPORTANT a new roof, please pray God provides the finances to purchase me a new roof–however, in the interim he sends his angels to hold my roof together and that it not leak.

It is amazing and wonderful to see many of you seek the Lord. He is ultimately our only one true source for all things in life. I have witnessed myself many miracles in healing physically to me and to many that I know. Jesus Heals! Believe it! God Bless You All In The Name Of Jesus Christ!

Johan October 1, 2009 at 10:11 am

one of my friends have something in his right foot, something with the nervsystem, the doctors aren't sure what it is, and he'll be fully recovered from 2 months to 1 year from now. I want him to be HEALED by the holy spirith, its hard to see him like that, not able to walk like everyone else, and having a so long period of time to recover. So please, Pray for my Friend, his name is Jona. So God knows who you mean. Pray that the LORD will Heal his foot so my friend can go as usual, it would mean much if my prayer, and Im sure his to, would be heard. (sorry, Im not used to talk about theese kind of terms in english, its tricky to figure out a simply way to ask this of you.. I beg you, let the Gods will be made.)

Thank you even if you read this. Its meaning alot. God Bless you, Child of God, and Jesus Christ!

Sarah January 12, 2010 at 7:07 pm

Please pray with me for the salvation of a man named Bill, and for those in his family who don’t know Jesus, or how much He truly loves them. I am not in a position to witness to this man personally, but others have been contacted to this regard. Please ask the Lord to extend His spirit to facilitate and lead a conversational witness through anyone whom He may choose. Please ask God to extend His grace toward Bill, doing everything needed to chase him, overcome his pride, lift the veil from his eyes, bring conviction to his heart and show him his need for a Savior. Like us all, Bill has made some mistakes, and has unfortunately had some tragic things to happen in his life. I fear his heart has hardened. He and his family need knowledge about God's love, His grace, His glory, His offer of forgiveness, healing, deliverance, and protection–especially now because at this time Bill needs release from addictive vulnerabilities, and is in danger of influence by unbelievers (who also need prayer) whose worldly beliefs stand in opposition to God's word. Please ask the Lord to surround Bill with believers who can minister to him, and that He may use the challenges Bill has endured to further the kingdom and lead him to salvation; then, that others will see and also be pointed to Christ by what God does in Bill's life. I thank you sincerely, for your prayers and time.

Anton June 17, 2010 at 9:42 pm

Dear Heavenly Father, I ask in need of your help to please bring us back to together. Please bless me with a plane ticket and a companion so I can fly over to Manila, for all I want to do is to look straight into her eyes and tell her that I really LOVE her, and how much I TREASURE her as much as the items that she gave me on my 26th birthday. I promised her that I'd fly over and save her, to take her out of that hellhole and fly away with her, and please give me the willingness to do it, and make my family encourage me. In the Name of Jesus, I humbly beg You, please help me on this situation. Please touch her heart, and make her realize that I'm the man for her and that she deserves my love. And please understand my situation that she's still the woman that I finally want to be with for the rest of my life. My heart just burns strongly for her despite this latest revelation between us. I love Desiree, and I want no other. Please don't ever let her stray away from me and do whatever it takes to bring us back together for good. I don't want to lose her forever. Thank You God, for the opportunity to listen to my prayer and I hope that You won't stop until we're finally back together. Thank You for the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and thank You for saving my life back when I was 2, and back when I was 9. Your Kingdom Come, I will rejoice in Your Name in the Holy Spirit as a testimony of blessing me by answering my prayer. Thank You. AMEN

I claim this prayer in Christ Jesus.+
