Tens of millions of evangelical Christians from 192 countries tuned into God TV’s “Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem” on Sunday, October 7. The event occurred as part of the wider Global Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem, which took place around the world with more than 300,000 churches participating.
According to its organizers, the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem has grown to one of the world’s largest pro-Israel annual observances. “As far as we know, it is the largest broadcast event promoting Jerusalem around the world taking place every year,” stated the press release.
This year, the event was bigger than ever, continuing in the spirit of the 70th anniversary of the State and 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s reunification.
Opening the day of prayer with blasts of the shofar as the audience waved Israeli flags, more than 1,000 Christians gathered from 30 nations on Jerusalem’s Haas Promenade.
The event occurred just one week following the Jewish holiday of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) in which Christians from all over the world came to celebrate “God’s provision in the wilderness and the joy of the age to come” with the Jewish people in Israel, sponsored by the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem.
Overlooking the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Reverend Robert Stearns, founder and executive director of Eagles’ Wings Ministries, thanked Israel for “allowing Christians to be Christians” freely and safely.
