Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

Den första söndagen i Oktober varje år samlas bedjare världen runt för att be för fred i Jerusalem. Denna världsvida bön samordns av Eagels Wings ministry. På deras hemsida finns en del av deras inspirationsmaterial översatt till svenska som du kan hitta här inklusive en affisch som du kan hitta här

Med tanke på den rådande situationen i Mellanöstern känns denna dag mycket angelägen!

Dear Praying Friends

GOD is stirring the hearts of His people to pray for Jerusalem as never before. Christians from China to Germany and from Kenya to Brazil are raising raise their voices in fervent intercession with His Son, on behalf of Jerusalem and all her inhabitants, both Jew and Arab alike in response to what is happening in the world today, and in alignment with God’s word, (Psalm 122:6,7.)

I am asking you today to join me in this global chorus of prayer.

We are weeks away from a powerful moment when on Sunday, October 7th, tens of millions of Christians in literally every corner of this planet will unite for the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem (DPPJ), a day specifically set aside the first Sunday of every October for the Church to gather and pray for Jerusalem. This prayer call has come from more than 1,200 global leaders (click here to view a partial list of leaders).

YOU can make your presence felt and pray for God's power and His peace to flood the streets of Jerusalem by doing these four (4) simple things:

1. Share our
short, entertaining new video with your friends and church.

2. Become the DPPJ Representative at your local church.

Make sure that YOUR church is praying. The DPPJ is NOT a single location event but rather a worldwide celebration day when LOCAL CHURCHES pray for Jerusalem in their Sunday services, in accordance with Psalm 122:6. There will be a Jerusalem Celebration on this day carried live on GOD TV around the world, but the real thrust of the initiative is on the local church level. To receive the FREE equipping packet now for your church, and to obtain helpful materials such as posters, prayer cards, videos, flyers, and children's resources for your local church, go now to www.daytopray.com.

If you are in Jerusalem during the week of October 1-7 and would like to attend the Jerusalem celebration of the DPPJ that will be broadcast by GOD TV around the world, go to www.daytopray.com to get more information about how you can attend.

3. Sign the "Call to Prayer Resolution".

4. Please forward this e-mail to as many people as you can.
Our goal is to reach 100 million Christians within the next 30 days with this timely message for the Body of Christ. Help us meet this goal for the Lord's sake and for His advancing Kingdom! If you will simply take a moment right now and forward this on, especially to your pastor, 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 only five minutes and forward this e-mail.

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

May the Lord's shalom rest over each of you,
