Smith, Chuck Pierce, Sunday Adeleja, and Joyce Meyer are just a handful of those all around the world who are in unity calling for focused, united prayer on this day.

Here is more information on this important day from Dr. Jack Hayford and Robert Stearns, Co-chairmen of the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem:

Dear Praying Friends,

Please take a moment to read and pass on this urgent prayer update.

We are just weeks away from a powerful moment, when millions of Christians in every nation across the planet will join in faith and unity to pray together for the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem the first Sunday of October.

Literally, in every corner of the globe, churches are preparing to stand in agreement with Psalm 122, and with one another in hope, and pray for God's presence and peace to flood the streets of Jerusalem, and minister peace to all of her inhabitants, Jew and Arab alike.

In order for this day to be effective we NEED to ACT together in unity. Please agree to make a difference today by doing three simple things....

1. Make sure your local church is participating on October 5th.

  • The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem is NOT a single location event but rather a worldwide celebration day when LOCAL CHURCHES remember to pray for Jerusalem in their Sunday services. Although there will be a Jerusalem Celebration of this day carried live on GOD TV around the world, the real thrust of the initiative is on the local church level. Please BE SURE that your church is participating! There are resources such as posters and prayer cards for your local church are available at www.daytopray.com.

2. Please forward this email to as many believing Christians as you can.

  • If you will simply take a moment right now and forward this on to your close friends and prayer partners, we can literally sound a global trumpet to bring clear focus and awareness to this urgent prayer effort. It really, really makes a difference if you will take five minutes and forward this email.

3. Sign the "Call to Prayer Resolution".

  • Thousands of Christian leaders around the world have signed this document, calling for global prayer for Jerusalem, and all her inhabitants. Add your voice to this growing number today, click here to sign the "Call to Prayer Resolution".

Finally, the Jerusalem Celebration of the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem will be carried live into 192 nations on GOD TV. If you are in Israel please plan to join us for this celebration, if you cannot be in Israel, GOD TV will be broadcasting this event internationally, LIVE on October 5th. The broadcast schedule will be available closer to the event date. Also consider having your church link with the Jerusalem celebration of the DPPJ by viewing the event on GOD TV! Go to http://www.god.tv/ for more information.

We thank you for putting action to your prayers and taking part in seeing God's purposes for Zion unfold in this hour of history!
