The JPB is a prayer movement that brings together government leaders and influential Christians from around the world for a gathering in Israel's capital to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6).
According to JPB's website, the vision of the prayer initiative is to mobilize the Church worldwide to join in the "gathering the nations to align themselves in prayer with God's purposes for Israel and Jerusalem," thereby answering "God's command and the Knesset's call to the nations to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the prosperity of Israel."
