100 Days of Prayer for Peace, Hope & Reconciliation

Praying for peace from 4 August to 11 November

 

Sunday 4 August 1918 was observed as a National Day of Prayer, called by King George V. One hundred days later the war ended.
 
Remembrance-100-Logo-MediumOn 4 August 2018 churches across the country, across the spectrum of denominations, will start 100 days of prayer for peace and reconciliation. We are calling this Remembrance 100. HOPE is coordinating this season of prayers for peace. Church leaders, Christian charities and ministries from Britain and the Commonwealth have written prayers to be used by churches and schools in villages, towns and cities across the UK over the 100 days.
 
In his contribution to the prayers, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby says: 
 
‘From 4 August 2018, in churches across this country, let us mark 100 days with prayers for peace, hope and reconciliation.’ 

Bishop Ben Kwashi, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Jos in Northern Nigeria, says ‘Through crises, faith can be built as the power and the presence of God is seen. Jesus did not promise to save us from trouble but he did promise to be with is in the trouble.’
 
These are alongside contributions from Chaplains, members of the Armed Forces and Christians from different denominations and a variety of walks of life.
 
To mark Remembrance Sunday at the end of the 100 days of prayer, peace and reconciliation local churches can give away a commemorative booklet called 'Silence' at Remembrance Services. Copies can be ordered here and will be available from the start of August.
