A Christian prayer line is to be inaugurated at the end of this month by Israel’s national telephone company, enabling Christians around the world to phone church leaders in Jerusalem for joint prayers.

Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan is to be among those taking part in the opening festivities of the new service, which is expected to attract 3,000 calls daily.
