The World Prayer Center is calling all Christians worldwide to a Worldwide Day of Prayer on Monday, March 3, 2003.

Ted Haggard, President of The World Prayer Team, says his office has been flooded with messages from people all over the world saying that God is impressing upon them to prepare to pray on 03-03-03.

"These believers do not know one another, nor are they connected to one another. They do not know that the others are saying the same thing. Clearly, the Holy Spirit is speaking to His church, and He is calling His people to pray," says Haggard.

"As these reports began to come in, we sensed in our hearts that God wants us to promote a huge outpouring of prayer on this special date. Many believe there is significance to this date because of its numerical sequence (03-03-03) which reminds many Christians of the Trinity. Moreover, the Holy Spirit has highlighted Jeremiah 33:3 (again, three 3's) as our call to action, 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know,'" says Haggard.

The magnitude of this date is not lost on the non-Christian world as well. The Global Consciousness movement (New Age) has for years been planning a worldwide "Largest ever experiment into global consciousness" to take place on 03-03-03. Their effort is slated to begin at 3:33am (Figi local time), on the 3rd day of the 3rd month of the 3rd millennium.

It has gained widespread notoriety in New Age circles.
Should this not be enough to cause Christians to pray, the significance of 03-03-03 becomes even more pressing as America could launch a war with Iraq at about that very hour, against a leader, Saddam Hussein, who has only recently embraced Islam as a way of gaining support from the Islamic world. Such was not the case with the first Gulf War.

According to the Islamic calendar, March 3, 2003 is the eve of the Islamic New Year (Islamic year 1424 begins March 4, 2003). It is also the last day of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, when pilgrims are encouraged to make a sacrifice (The Festival of Sacrifice or Eid al-Adha). The key verse in the Qu' Ran about this festival to take place this year on March 3, 2003 is, "Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life or my death, are all of Allah?" This date therefore holds great significance to the Islamic world.


While all of this is beneath the radars of the secular news media, it is clear to many Christian leaders that the world is on the brink of a spiritual battle of monumental proportions. The epicenter of this struggle is the Middle East-a battle is going on for Jerusalem and Babylon (Iraq), biblical centers of spiritual light and darkness.

The World Prayer Team therefore calls on all Christian churches and individuals to set aside at least 3 minutes to pray at 3:33 PM in their time zone on 03/03/03.

it's a possibility...

however there was a concern that something might happen on saturday 15th february, which coincided with both the end of Eid and also the peace march in london. Nothing did though.

I can see that if just a couple of people were worrying about this date, then panic spreads quickly through certain groups. In no way am I knocking christians, but there does appear to be a certain element of hysteria in the way some factions operate.

Certainly an interesting and slightly unnerving post - can I ask where you got your source from? Got a few folk on my usual forum who will be curious about this one

I pray I shall live past it.

I hope researchers are taking note...

There could be a way to turn this into a scientific investigation. The power of mass prayer or the such...

Sorry, I misinterpreted the meaning you intended for the word, "link"...

Actually, it's the power of meme.

Someone (into biblical numerology, I believe) had gotten the inspiration that 03-03-03 should be an inspirational day. I quite forget the context of why it was going to be an inspiration, but it was rather tenuous logic by a very inspired evangelical Christian.

And I believe it started last November-ish.

This Inspired Person rushed off to post it elsewhere. The item kept circulating among the evangelicals (who tend to be avid email forwarders) and eventually caught on in some other groups.

So it's an Internet Fad that was started within the last year (like the latest MLM rage) and grew in the telling.

Nothing more significant than that.
