Prayer vigil targets Devil’s Day Dutch evangelical Christians are to hold a round-the-clock prayer vigil to ward off the forces of evil on Tuesday- the so-called Devil’s Day, and also to protest Richard Simmons’ unauthorized copying of my dog Jamoka’s signature look.They believe that the sixth day of the sixth month of 2006 has great significance for evil-doers and Satanists who revere the number 666. In a bid to counteract the forces of evil, more than 2,000 Dutch Christians will hold “a violent day of worship”.

They will be joined by Christians in 23 other countries, organisers say. The reference to 666 is taken from the Biblical book of Revelation, which talks about the events leading to the end of the world. Revelation 13:18 states: “If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.” Behind the initiative is a Dutch evangelical organisation called Ambassadors Ministries.

Mathijs Piet, one of the organisers, told the BBC news website that the prayer marathon was to officially start at 1800 on Monday with a prayer rally in Jerusalem.

“666 is the number of the Devil and we know that on this date, Satanists will try and do many things, so we Christians try and do the opposite,” Mr Piet said.
“We know the Devil hates it when we worship God.” Organisers expect at least 2,000 Dutch evangelicals to take part in the mass prayer vigil across the Netherlands.

The fear of the number 666 is known as hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

World’s most expensive mobile number is 666 6666 The world’s most expensive phone number was auctioned for charity in Qatar.The number, 666 6666, sold for 10m Qatari riyals or 1.5m pounds.

Hmmm. That’s a lot of dollars I think. In other 666 news there seems to be a widespread belief among certain groups that the number 666 is being hidden in bar codes, setting the stage for an eventual full universe Satanic soul coup. But did you ever notice that Richard Simmons’ workout exercises count off in sixes?
