Day of prayer on 3-3-2003?




Summary of eRumor:

An email call to prayer on 3-3-2003, prayer and fasting for the United States as the threat of war with Iraq hangs in the air.  Some version also suggest praying at 3:03 for 3 minutes on that day.

The Truth:

This is an interesting one.  
It was started by someone somewhere, we don’t know who.
And it seemed like a good idea to other people, so it got forwarded to multitudes of others and caught on.
As the song says, “It only takes a spark to get a fire going.”
Many churches and ministries including Ted Haggard’s World Prayer Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, joined in calling for March 3 to be a day of prayer, so it became somewhat official.
