International Day of Prayer for Peace - September 21, 2013
Each year on 21 September the World Council of Churches calls churches and parishes to observe the International Day of Prayer for Peace. 21 September is also the United Nations-sponsored International Day of Peace.

As it approaches, the World Council of Churches invites people to offer prayers for peace.

This year we would like to invite you to pray for the upcoming World Council of Churches 10th Assembly. The theme of the assembly is a prayer for peace:

“God of Life, Lead Us to Justice and Peace”

Churches from all over the world will gather in Busan, South Korea, 30 October to 8 November 2013, for the event.

We would like to ask you to pray the theme – pray it for the world, pray it for the church, pray it for the churches attending the WCC assembly, pray it with the assembly.

God of Life...

God of Life, Lead...
God of Life, Lead Us...

God of Life, Lead Us to Justice...
God of Life, Lead Us to Justice and Peace.

Each word and phrase of the assembly theme are a kind of prayer. The nine words together are a statement of faith, a cry of hope, an affirmation of unity and a pledge to discipleship.

Some may meditate on the words; others may pray by finishing one of the sentences.

This peace prayer day please join us in prayer. Join the WCC 10th Assembly in prayer.

Please share your prayers on Facebook or Twitter(#peaceday).
