Christians are being called upon next month to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

The sponsoring organization is Eagles Wings Ministries, headquartered in New York. 

Eagle Wings spokesperson Miriam Rodlyn Park says churches are participating in more than 175 countries, including underground churches in China and Muslim countries.

The date is the first Sunday of October, October 6, and churches will use part or all of their services for prayer for the peace of Jerusalem.

A special ceremony in Jerusalem will be broadcast on God TV.  

“And we really dedicate it to coming together as God's people focusing in on Psalm 122:6 to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and as a unified Body of Christ around the world praying God's heart and God's purposes for the land that He calls his own,” Park tells OneNewsNow.

Park says God has a redemptive plan for all mankind that will take place in the literal place of Jerusalem.

“There's a battle that is raging in that land, not so much over pieces of real estate as most of the media would say,” she says. “But if you are tuned in to God's purposes for this land, and his purposes for the redemption of mankind, you know that it's about who is going to be worshipped.”
