The New Testament does not provide a clear description of the place of crucifixion. The identification of the place of crucifixion and burial, as is customary to the present day, is attributed to Helena, the Roman Emperor Constantinus, who visited Jerusalem three centuries after Jesus' death, in 326. A local guide led Helena to the burial ground which was then agreed upon by the faithful, and also pointed out to her the remains of the true cross - according to tradition at the time. As a result, Helena consecrated the place where the Emperor, after a while, ordered the erection of a church to mark the site of the Holy Sepulcher - the "Church of the Tomb."

Prayer In Holy Sepulchre Church


In fact, God wants to spoil us with our desires (as long as it’s mighty helpful) and all we have to do is converse with him and ask. A most popular and obvious method is to pray to him and ask whatever we need and want. That said, the purpose of this website, as said, is to educate when there is no available aid during spiritual lows. We’ve all been through situations like that and we understand what you’re passing through (very much so). We needed prayers varying across financial stability, security, healing, encouragement, love and relationship, friendship and companionship, and faith. It’s as a result of that experience that we operate a prayer service that’ll get you and hence, your needs closer to God.

“But now, this is what the Lord says, He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.’” – Isaiah 43:1-2
With God, you have a companion so great that you’re never ever alone.
