(Worthy News) - Millions of Christians worldwide praying in more than 35 languages united for one cause on Sunday: The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.
“All around the world on the first Sunday of every October, Christians in every language and every continent are setting aside the first Sunday to Shaalu Shalom Yerushalaim, to Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem,” said Robert Stearns, co-founder and director of Eagles’ Wings Ministry that sponsors the annual prayer day.
Hundreds of Christians gathered for the central event on the Promenade overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem.
