Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

    May they be secure who love you! Psalm 122:6



The annual day of prayer for the city of Jerusalem is scheduled to take place this Sunday (Oct. 4).


The day of prayer for Jerusalem takes place the first Sunday every October and is a time to raise “a cry to heaven on behalf of this troubled, but strategic land and its people,” according to CBN News.


The event is sponsored by Eagles’ Wings Ministry and will be televised live, overlooking Jerusalem’s Old City.


At the event last year, Robert Stearns, director of Eagles’ Wings, stated, "But this day, this day is different. This day is a day of prayer in a city whose ultimate calling is to be a house of prayer for all nations.”


Organizers of the prayer event estimate that hundreds of millions of Christians will join together to pray for Jerusalem on Sunday.
