Answered Prayer from 2014

Zion Founder John Brown recently wrote Zion shareholders and supporters a follow-up letter regarding his prayer requests from 2014…

To: Zion’s family and friends

Subject: Answered prayer from our March 21, 2014 Prayer Request (attached below)

First of all I want to thank God for He has now answered three out of the five prayer requests that we all have prayed for. However, we all need to continue praying that the two remaining requests (2.) (3.) will be answered too. [See full list of prayer requests below]

In Luke 18:1-8 the first verse says “and he spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.” And in verse 8(B) it is written, “Nevertheless when the son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

I believe that “by Faith”; God will answer all our prayers (Isa. 65:24, Jer. 33:3) “and I say unto you, ask and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” (Luke 11:9)

Zion’s promise (Psalm 67:1-7)

Prayer request sent March 21, 2014



God has recently impressed upon my heart (Proverbs 21:1) the need for us to be in unity (Psalm 133) and specific in our prayer requests. The prayers that we pray this way will be answered (Job 14:15) and God will be glorified by our testimonies to his faithfulness to keep his promises to Israel exactly as it was written (Isaiah 14:24). He also has reminded me of Joshua’s prayer in (Joshua 10:12,13); Hezekiah’s in (2 Chronicles 30:18-20); Jabez in (1 Chronicles 4:10); Manoah in (Judges 13:8,9); Samuel in (1 Samuel 7:5); and a man of God in (1 Kings 13:1-6) and God answered all their prayers when they all obeyed and prayed “By Faith” (John 14:13,14) with an attitude of expectancy (Hebrews 11:32-34) and we should all pray the same way continually. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

Lastly, on a more personal note, occasionally people will ask what denomination I am or where I attend church. My wife Joan and I attend Gateway in Southlake, Texas and when I am in Israel I attend Kehilat Hacarmel on Mt Carmel. (Hebrews 10:25)

Shalom from Dallas,
John Brown
