The Church of Holy Sepulcher is located in the Old City of Jerusalem. The church is not significant only because it symbolizes the spot where our Lord, Jesus Christ was crucified, laid to rest, and thereafter He resurrected. It is significant because it couples the historical grounds with history rich and groundbreaking miracles. Miracles, which have been agreed by scholars/historians, the faithful, and archaeologists to have very much be performed.
The signs are in the bible and our monumental position (location) is just one more from our Father in Heaven.

A Little History about the Church of the Holy Sepulcher
The Church of Holy Sepulcher is a Christian church that originated around the 4th century in what is now known as Jerusalem, Israel. It was dedicated to the Christian religious beliefs (consecrated) on 13 September, 335 and it has been active in one way or another ever since. The Church was founded by Constantin the Great and its architecture has elements from Roman type buildings (i.e Romanesque, Baroque). Also, the building can easily hold up to 8,000 faithfuls and additionally, it holds the last four Stations of the Via Dolorosa—which stands for the last episodes of Jesus’ Passion.
The Importance of Praying in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher
At the Church of Holy Sepulcher, different people across various races have been coming to share a private time with God. The private time can be called pilgrimages which are special sessions that most people take with God through prayers. It’s also a sign of utmost devotion to the works being performed daily, every minute by our Lord Father. Still, hindrances like insufficient time and financial conditions might put a stop to such wonderful endeavors. This is the reason why the website, Holylandprayer.com exists. Our wish to connect people with the right type of prayers slightly alleviates the need to go on a pilgrimage. And also, as a Christian, prayer is pivotal to our livelihood.
“14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” – 1 John 5:14
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.
