The 24-Hour DPPJ Teleconference Call on October 5th, 2008
Release Date:10/6/2008 12:00:00 AM

Throughout the 24 hours of October 5th, a steady stream of Christians from all over the world called into the Teleconferencing Prayer Call, hosted by www.greatercalling.org, to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the many needs of her people groups. There were almost 700 calls into the virtual prayer room; many intercessors stayed on the prayer line for hours, while some called back periodically throughout the day.

There were international callers from Morocco, Kenya, Burkina Faso, Italy, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Brazil and the Netherlands, while intercessors born in Germany (visiting Utah) and Uruguay (calling from Ohio), participated as well. There were thirty-two states from America represented on the call, with the largest representation coming from New Jersey, Florida, Georgia, New York, Texas and California.

Many prayed in their native tongue, and worship songs were sung in various languages. The shofar was blown on several of the telephone prayer watches, and weeping could be heard as intercessors fervently cried out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for His beloved city and people. The prayers were not isolated to Jerusalem alone, however; as intercessors poured out their hearts before G-d, an emphasis on praying for the upcoming elections of both the United Stated and Israel was also strongly evident.

Some interesting highlights from the 24-hour call this year:

The caller from Kenya was from the World Prayer Tower in Nairobi where several dozen intercessors were gathered in sustained prayer for the 24 hours of October 5th.

The callers from Italy were on the call for a total of 12.5 hours out of the 24, and they were prayer leaders during a couple of the prayer watches.

The prayers offered in German and in Italian took place during the same watch. Only the Lord could raise up Christian voices from those two countries, which not so long ago were allies in wanting to destroy the Jewish people. Praise the Lord of redemption, who has raised up a praying remnant in this day to counter the past and to lift up heartfelt prayers for Israel and the Jewish people
