What Is the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem?

On the first Sunday of every October, hundreds of millions of people around the world join together to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. In just a few years, this event has quickly become the largest Israel-focused prayer event in history. But why set aside this day each year to pray for Jerusalem?

We set aside this one day each year to raise global awareness and intercession for G-d’s purposes in Israel, knowing that this hour in history is critical and our authority in prayer is great. Though we pray every day for Israel, we seek on this day to unite believers around the world in raising a cry to Heaven on behalf of this troubled, but strategic land and its people. We believe in G-d’s promises for His beloved nation and fervently pray to hasten the day when He brings fulfillment to His word.

Begun in 2002 in meetings with leading political and religious leaders from Israel and the United States, this is now the largest prayer movement of its kind, with over 1,200 key leaders within the Evangelical Christian world lending their active support.

Our vision is for sustained, fervent, and informed global intercession for the plans and purposes of G-d for Jerusalem and all her people. Our goal, by G-d’s grace, is that by this coming October we will have at least 175 participating nations and 300 million believers praying for the peace of Jerusalem.

The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem is organized by Pentecostal evangelists Jack W. Hayford and Robert Stearns through their organization “Eagles Wings”. They annually invite people around the world to pray for Jerusalem on the first Sunday of every October, close to the time of Yom Kippur. The first prayer meeting organized by this group occurred in 2004. (found on Wikipedia)
