EVENT – Global Peace Prayer on 22 March

A communique from a prayer planning committee explained that Christians are called into prayer and advocacy for peace. “In a global context where war and violence abound, the practice of peace has become even more urgent,” reads the message.

The message also notes that the war in Ukraine has entered its second year while, simultaneously, escalating violence in Palestine, continuing military exercises threatening peace on the Korean Peninsula, state violence in Myanmar, a fragile situation in Ethiopia, and war in several other parts of the world threaten peace.

Last year, the World Methodist Council, the Conference of European Churches, Baptist World Alliance, Lutheran World Federation, Mennonite World Conference, and World Communion of Reformed Churches organized an online global peace prayer attended by more than 5,000 people from 150 countries.

This year, the World Methodist Council, other Christian world communions, and the World Council of Churches will be organizing a Global Peace Prayer on 22 March.

The event will be conducted primarily in English. Translation will be provided in Spanish, French, Ukrainian and other languages will be provided.
