The Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem welcomes Jeff Farmer, President of the Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America (PCCNA) as a partnering leader in the annual global prayer movement for Jerusalem.
PCCNA represents over 480,000 churches and nearly 90 million followers of Christ worldwide. Farmer has officially endorsed the international prayer initiative for Jerusalem and has committed to mobilizing membership churches to join millions of Christians in prayer on Oct. 4.
"Praying for the peace of Jerusalem should be among our highest priorities in this life of knowing, loving and serving Christ," Farmer said. "Oh Father, inflame our hearts with fervent, unceasing prayer for the peace of Jerusalem. Amen!"
Robert Stearns, co-founder of the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem, remarked, "We are deeply honored to have Dr. Jeff Farmer join us in praying for Jerusalem on Oct. 4. As the first president of PCCNA, Farmer has served as chairman for the past five years."
Farmer says the partnership is a strategic stepping stone to PCCNA's future and comes in the wake of five years of sustained membership growth.
PCCNA remains committed to bringing down walls that have separated different races and provides a framework for fellowship, dialogue and cooperation between the various Pentecostal and Charismatic denominations, churches and ministries in North America.
Farmer joins 1,300 other Christian endorsers who represent all different cultures, and denominations—among them are Paul Cedar, Ron Luce, Kay Arthur, Jane Hansen, T. D. Jakes and Ravi Zacharias. Their united call is for all believers to fulfill the Lord's mandate in Ps. 122:6, to pray for God's peace, blessing and love to Jews, Arabs and Christians alike in God's Holy City—Jerusalem.
Co-founded by Dr. Robert Stearns and Dr. Jack Hayford, the annual Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem—the first Sunday of every October—is one of the largest Israel-focused prayer events in history, with churches participating last year from over 175 nations, including those "underground" in seven Muslim nations.
