The Prayer Altar at the Heart of the City
In the history of mankind and the Bible, the city is a strategic cultural, commercial, moral and religious place, because it is a heartland of the region. In the twenty-first century, the big cities are leading the trend and shaping the way of thinking. They control most of the resources and could rewrite the history of mankind.
At the same time, the Word of God in Isaiah 19:19-21 also pointed out that the establishment of the prayer alter in the center of a city can transform the spiritual condition of a region or even a country.
"In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them. So the Lord will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the Lord. They will worship with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the Lord and keep them."
