The Prayer Roses are a special group of intercessors who pray for the needs of the Jewish Jewels ministry. They are truly the backbone of our work for the Lord. The Prayer Roses receive periodic Prayer Letters from Jamie, listing Praise Reports, Prayer Requests and names of Jewish pre-believers who have not as yet met their Messiah. These names are sent to us by those who receive our monthly newsletters. The Prayer Roses also pray for the personal needs of Neil, Jamie and their two sons, Jonathan and Jesse, as well as the needs of the office staff of Jewish Jewels.
Why are they called Roses? The Rose has been used in connection with Jewish Jewels from the time the ministry was formed as Love Song to the Messiah. We changed the name, but not the LOVE! Roses and LOVE go together, and our Prayer Roses pray as a labor of LOVE. They are a sweet fragrance to God, like the scent of a beautiful rose. “The prayer of the upright is His delight.” (Proverbs 15:8) “For we are to God the fragrance of Messiah among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” (2 Corinthians 2:15)
