Hundreds of millions of Christians in literally every corner of this planet are expected to unite on Sunday, October 4, for the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem (DPPJ) – a day specifically set aside annually for the Church to pray for Jerusalem and all her inhabitants.
To date, more than 1,400 global leaders have joined the call for prayer and more than 300,000 ministries and organizations in more than 175 nations have reportedly joined the prayer effort, which is being coordinated by Eagles Wings.
Each year, the first Sunday in October is designated as the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem. Originally organized in 2002 by Rev. Robert Stearns, Founder and Director of Eagles’ Wings, and Dr. Jack Hayford, Founding Pastor of The Church On The Way in Van Nuys, CA, this year’s Day of Prayer event has a goal of mobilizing 500 million people around the globe to pray for the Peace of Jerusalem on October 4.
Participants and supporters are being asked to raise awareness of the prayer effort to as many people as they can, to register their church as one of the many that will intercede for Jerusalem in their Sunday services, and to download resources for the day of prayer, including flyers, prayer cards, videos, social media images, web banners, and material for all ages.
The free online DPPJ materials are available in more than 20 languages.
For more information, call the DPPJ office at 1-800-519-4647 or visit daytopray.com.
Among those who have supported the prayer effort are Kay Arthur, Co-Founder of Precept Ministries International; Michael Little, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Christian Broadcasting Network; Dr. William M. Wilson, President of Oral Roberts University; and Ravi Zacharias, Founder and President of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.
