During a visit to Israel many years ago, I met John and Tikva Ott. Before that trip, someone told me about The Jerusalem Prayer Tower, assuring me of the blessing to be received in praying and worshipping over the city of Jerusalem, according to God’s command in Psalm 122:6-9:
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
“May peace be within your walls,
And prosperity within your palaces.”
For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
I will now say, “May peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your good.
Now, after many more trips to Israel, that experience stands as one of the most memorable and powerful. During that initial visit, I met John and Tikva Ott, who (at the time) directed the ministry of The Jerusalem Prayer Tower. John, a native of Wisconsin, had married Tikva, an Iraqi Jew, and together they led prayer and worship on the top floor of a building overlooking Jerusalem. I will never forget the power manifested in that time of prayer and worship, led by the Ott’s.
Over the years and multiple visits to Israel, stops at the JPT have became a permanent part of my agenda, and I have grown to know John and Tikva a little more each time. They have hearts totally sold out to sharing Yeshua the Messiah to Jews and Gentiles alike. They are beautiful in prayer, in dance, and in love to everyone the Lord puts in their path.
John and Tikva share their amazing testimonies in this video, and I know you will be blessed. Enjoy!
