James Twyman to Lead International Prayer Vigils in Syria and Egypt

James Twyman

James Twyman will conduct peace concerts and prayer vigils in war-torn Syria and Egypt, accompanied by a group of inter- faith religious leaders. The New York Times bestselling author will end the tour with a major peace concert in Jerusalem. The accompanying group will include a Jewish rabbi, a Muslim sheik, a Catholic priest and a leader from the Druze religion. The prayer vigil for Syria is slated for August 15, and the one in Egypt will be August 18.

In addition, Twyman is calling upon 100,000 people from around the world to participate by sending prayers during the vigils. “Anyone can join the group of 100,000,” says Twyman, “and all we ask is that you watch a couple of short videos on our website to learn how to do it.” Twyman believes in Quantum Prayer, in which each person each person focuses on the feeling that the prayer has been answered already, as opposed to asking for something to happen that has yet to occur. “Something magical happens when thousands of people feel that a prayer has already been answered,” Twyman attests.
