How You Can Help Bring Peace to the
Yassar Arafat said has been quoted as saying,
"Peace will not come to
the Middle East without a million strong prayers."
Author James Twyman and one million others intend to do
exactly that! Please go to the Emissary of

You can see from the counter at this web site which prayer number yours is
(mine was number 59,407). In the 30 minutes it took me to write this

When one million prayers of peace have been recorded on the
web site, James Twyman, author of PRAYING PEACE, will travel to Israel with

then be brought to Israel.
While it's true that millions of people have participated in
many recent prayer vigils, never before (to my knowledge) has anyone
recorded the exact number of people who were participating. When one
million prayers of peace have been gathered for the Middle East, I believe
we will have achieved something truly wonderful.
Your prayer really does count, and will make a difference.
