International Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem
Sunday, October 4, 2009

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you." (Psalm 122:6)


International Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

(We are sending on this important message knowing that many people will want to join us on the International Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem the first Sunday in October. Thank you!)
Dear Praying Friends,

As the Bible said it would, Jerusalem has become a cup of controversy on the global stage today (Zech. 12:2-3).

RIGHT NOW . . . there are increasing threats from many nations against God's covenant city, there are escalating tensions surrounding the inhabitants of the land of Israel, and there are ever-increasing global repercussions for all mankind because of the critical situation.
As these global challenges arise, however, GOD is present. His response has been to stir the hearts of Christians from China to Germany and from Kenya to Brazil, to raise their voices in fervent intercession with His Son, on behalf of Jerusalem and all her inhabitants, both Jew and Arab alike.

Are you one of those voices?

We are weeks away from a powerful moment. On Sunday, October 4th, tens of millions of Christians in literally every corner of this planet will unite for the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem, a day specifically set aside by more than 1,200 global leaders.

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

1. Make sure your local church is participating on October 4th.

The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem 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. Please BE SURE that your church is participating! To receive your FREE equipping packet now, and to obtain helpful materials such as posters, prayer cards, videos, flyers, and children's resources for your local church, go now to

2. 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.

3. Sign the "Call to Prayer Resolution".

Thousands of Christians from all over the world have signed this document, calling for a day of global prayer for Jerusalem and all her inhabitants. Add your voice to this growing number today. Click here to sign the "Call To Prayer Resolution".

Finally, the Jerusalem Celebration of the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem will be carried live into 192 nations on GOD TV. If you are in Israel at that time, please plan to join us for this celebration. If you cannot be in Israel, GOD TV will be broadcasting this event internationally, LIVE on October 4th (broadcast schedule will be available closer to the event date). Also consider having your church link with the Jerusalem celebration of the DPPJ by viewing the event on GOD TV! Go to for more information.

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,

Rev. Robert Stearns
Co-Chairman, Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

Dr. Jack Hayford
Co-Chairman, Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

Publishing Notice

Congress will return from its Summer District Work Period on Tuesday, September 8.

Accordingly, our next edition of "On Capitol Hill This Week" will be published on Monday, September 7.

As always, the Daily Brief will be published this week, Tuesday through Friday.
Thank you for praying for our entire editorial team as we work to bring you these alerts every week. May we each hear and know the burden of the Lord for our nation, and may we offer all intercession according to HIS perfect will.
In His Amazing Grace,

Your CHPP editorial team

P.S. Second note: Because our editors are spread across the nation, we are not always able to release an alert in a "timely" fashion but must, instead, send it out just after midnight -- hence, "a day late." Thank you for "going with the flow" as we network together to bring forth these prayer bulletins for you.

" . . . every joint supplieth . . ." (Eph. 4:16)
