Verdensvid bønn for fred
onsdag 22. mars 2023
“And they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”
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.
The war in Ukraine has entered its second year, 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 Baptist World Alliance, the Lutheran World Federation, The Mennonite World Conference, World Methodist Council, the Conference of European Churches and the World Communion of Reformed Churches organized an online global peace prayer on the 2nd of March. This was attended by over five thousand people from about one hundred and fifty countries.
This year, these Christian World Communions, along with the World Council of Churches, will be organizing a Global Peace Prayer on the 22nd of March, 2023, at 3 pm CET. Kindly register for the peace prayer by clicking on the link below.
