Children as young as 6 years old are leading 'Prayer and Worship Watches' every week in the heart of Jerusalem. This kids 'Watch' has grown to two full teams of 6-12 year olds who lead all the worship, proclaim scripture and pray. Your People My People had the privilege last year, to join them for one of their 'Watches' and we were amazed at the ability and sincerity of these kids to really worship and pray for their generation.
Operating out of Succat Hallel House of Prayer in Jerusalem, Dor Haba (meaning Next Generation in Hebrew) is a ministry to young worshippers and prayer warriors from all over Israel - both Jewish and Arab followers of Jesus. Every week, Dor Haba facilitates 'Prayer and Worship' watches run by young intercessors.
Dor Haba also facilitates and mentors two more 'Prayer and Worship Watches' for 13-15 year olds who lead 2 hours of worship and intercession each week.
Tal, Director of Dor Haba, shared about a recent spontaneous cry that came out of these teenagers last week. "At this watch, they're learning and interceding about different topics, like abortion in Israel and the persecution of believers in the Middle East. This week, these guys did not want to stop and they continued for another extra hour, after we "closed" in prayer several times (So 3 hours total!)."
"The 14-year old worship leader began singing spontaneously, "We won't stop...until You return" and the others joined in. I couldn't help but laugh at their persistence. Every week I am so touched by their passion to worship Him at such a young age."
"This is where they want to be and what they want to do after school. It's simply a God-thing. One of their 8th grade teachers who came and saw their worship time told me yesterday, "They love coming here! It's all they talk about at school that day. They never want to miss it, no matter what""
Several older teenagers have also started individual devotional watches on their own initiative.
Pray for these kids, so passionate to see God move among their generation and in their nation.
And Lord, we won't stop...until you return!
