Call for Prayers for Peace

The United Church of Christ is calling for your prayers for peace as wars and conflicts continue to escalate around the world. Injustices and inequalities manifest as racism, discrimination, gender-based violence, economic disparities, and other issues.

As a communal response to uplift these sorrows and support our neighbors near and far, General Minister and President Rev. Karen Georgia Thompson calls the church to a season of prayer. Prayer undergirds our witness, ministry, and advocacy as we work for peace and a just world for all.

Rev. Karen Georgia Thompson calls for your prayers for peace.

This is an open invitation to anyone who feels called to offer a prayer to end violence in any manifestation, and to bring about peace. Share your prayers using the People’s Prayers for Peace form. New prayers will be published daily. Publishing is at the discretion of the National Ministries of the United Church of Christ and prayers may be edited for content and length.
