Let your voice prayers be heard in Jerusalem.  For the very first time in history, you can pray in Jerusalem from wherever you are in the world. The app allows the users to record a 45-second prayer, schedule the time of day they would like their pray to be played and then broadcast by Jerusalem.com across Jerusalem’s Old City walls.

Jerusalem has for millennia held a special place in the minds, hearts, and imaginations of people all over the world. For millions of people across the globe, Jerusalem continues to play a special role in their spiritual lives. Some of these people will be able to make the trip to visit the city, and for many others that trip will exist only within. Via the virtual world we can connect between the city of Jerusalem and people all over the world and provide the opportunity to experience Jerusalem in all its many faceted variety. Using modern technology we can establish Jerusalem as a meaningful religious and spiritual destination in the virtual world, and create bridges in the process between faiths, religions, languages and distance in a way that has never been done before.

We can enable people to feel connected to Jerusalem and to support the city’s special place in our world – whether they are across the ocean or half a world away. With jPray your prayers and messages will be heard in the holiest city in the worldJerusalem.

“This option is for people who want to maintain a spiritual connection with the city but are unable to visit it,” explained Michael Weiss, one of the jerusalem.com administrators. “The idea is to provide a meaningful experience beyond an image of the city. We allow any person in the world to be heard in the city of God.

Israelis’ accessibility to the holy sites is elementary but is not within the reach of millions of people. Many of them will not be able to come here even once in their lives. Using this technology one can provide people far away with something of the holy city’s DNA,” Weiss said.

He also added that the loudspeaker will be installed in the Yemin Moshe neighborhood and will operate on medium volume.

According to Weiss, after a prayer has been sounded the person who sent the recording will receive a message saying “G0d heard your prayer in Jerusalem.”

Thus far prayers have been received from 72 countries and Weiss said that Jews are “the strongest audience” but that there are many prayers from Christians and Muslims (via ynet.com).
