Prayer for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons
October 16, 2022 – October 29, 2022
- This event has passed.
This year is the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Nuclear war was avoided then. We need to avoid it now in the Ukraine and for future generations.
Loretto at the UN joins with the United Religions Initiative (URI)’s Voices for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons and invite you to join in daily prayer (see below) Oct 16-29 to eliminate the threats of nuclear war.
Never underestimate the power of prayer.
May Peace Prevail on Earth.
The URI Nuclear Prayer was written by the Right Rev. William E. Swing, founder of URI. We also invite you to add your own prayers and encourage others to join this call to action.
The Nuclear Prayer
The Beginning and the End are in your hands, O Creator of the Universe. And in our hands you have placed the fate of this planet. We, who are tested by having both creative and destructive power in our free will, turn to you in sober fear and intoxicating hope.
We ask for your guidance and to share in your imagination in our deliberations about the use of nuclear force. Help us to lift the fog of atomic darkness that hovers so pervasively over our Earth, Your Earth, so that soon all eyes may see life magnified by your pure light.
Bless all of us who wait today for your Presence and who dedicate ourselves to achieve your intended peace and rightful equilibrium on Earth. In the Name of all that is holy and all that is hoped.
