There is only one city in the entire world to which God has tied His very Name – the city of Jerusalem. As the geographical center for God’s Kingdom, the call to pray fervently for Jerusalem is declared throughout Scripture, until its completion when Jerusalem becomes a praise in the earth (Psalm 122:6, Isaiah 62:7).
How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of Heaven’s Armies. I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God.
The call to pray for Jerusalem is far more than a once-a-year event – it is a scriptural mandate that has become a global movement throughout the year.
When we join our lives and prayers daily to pray for Jerusalem, we build a powerful shield together in intercession against the forces of darkness that continually come against God’s people and land. Make it your daily cry, wherever you are, to pray for Jerusalem’s peace!
Believers from nations across the globe have joined this historic movement of prayer for Jerusalem.
More than 1,500 global leaders have pledged their support of this worldwide prayer initiative on behalf of Jerusalem. Hear what these leaders are saying about the Day of Prayer.
Millions around the world have already taken the step to make Jerusalem a part of their congregational and personal prayers on the first Sunday of October and also throughout the year.
Take this simple but powerful action today and pledge to join us in prayer this October!
