Paul Wilbur is perhaps the best Messianic worship leader on the Integrity roster (or anybody else’s roster for that matter), and has been making excellent music for many years. This studio recorded album contains many songs that have already been featured on various live recordings in the last 15 years and amongst the composer credits, apart from Paul himself, are such worthies as Lynn DeShazo and Steve Merkel. Personally, I tend to prefer praise and worship music of whatever tradition free from the distractions of OTT worship leaders and congregations going bananas, so this was an enjoyable listen, with smooth segues between tracks, typical (ie, excellent) Integrity production values, and a generous running time. All who love Messianic music should find much here to please.

Product Description
Significant for the time, 'Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem' is a masterful journey of Messianic worship. Passionate melodies recorded in Israel convey a longing for the return of the Messiah and peace for His chosen people. This musical pilgrimage opens with prayerful songs of worship, 'Ma Tovu', progresses into cries for peace, 'Shalom Jerusalem', and ends with a climatic call for Yeshua to return to establish His Kingdom, 'Baruch Haba'. Experience powerful prayer and intercession for Jerusalem with these stirring songs taken from Paul Wilbur's Jerusalem trilogy.
