On Sunday, October 5th hundreds of Christians and Jews gathered in Jerusalem for the Day of Prayer for the peace of Jerusalem.

It's estimated millions of Christians around the world joined them through the Internet, including the Website GodTV.

More than 200,000 churches pledged to pray in more than 150 nations.

Many Christian and Jewish leaders stressed it's a critical time to pray for Jerusalem.

"The future is very challenging," said Danny Ayalon, former Israeli ambassador to the U.S. "There are those who are trying to ruin us. Us means the Judeo-Christian heritage, the Judeo-Christian world, our way of life, our beliefs. These are those who do this not because of our policies, of what we do but of who we are," he said.

"It is therefore not without significance that we pray today with millions of Christians all over the world for the peace of Jerusalem," said Malcolm Hedding of the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem.

"A peace that will bring the blessing of God to this city and to this world and that's why the Bible says pray for the peace of Jerusalem," Hedding explained.
