(Worthy News) – Christian recording artists and musicians from 28 countries have sent a prayer for God’s peace and blessing to Israel through a special Feast of Tabernacles video of their performing the song “Btfilah Amen” (In Prayer Amen), the Israeli entry at the 1995 Eurovision song contest, the Jerusalem Post (JP) reports.
The “Btfilah Amen” video debuted on September 20, the eve of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) holiday, at an International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem (ICEJ) event attended by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, Defense Minister Benny Gantz, and President Isaac Herzog, JP reports.
The video was then published on social media networks, gaining tens of thousands of views in a short space of time, JP said. The song is in Hebrew and is a prayer for God to “give a blessing of peace and guard our house” and to “bring us closer to the dream within us” and to “open our hearts that we will always sing to you.”
Originally performed at Eurovision by Israeli singer Liora, the Sukkot version was performed by singers and musicians from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Egypt, Fiji, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Macedonia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Serbia, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and the United States, JP reports.
“Your devotion to Israel is not only a blessing for us, but it has helped us sustain our situation during the most trying times, including wars. You rejoice in Israel’s many triumphs, and you stand with us side-by-side when we most need it,” Bennett said at the ICEJ event.
