Online Interfaith Prayer Service for Peace in Ukraine

Interfaith Prayer Service for Peace in Ukraine

hosted by Asian Conference of Religions for Peace (ACRP) / Religions for Peace Asia

Asian Conference of Religions for Peace (ACRP) hosts an interfaith prayer service for peace in Ukraine, which will be conducted at 2:00pm-3:00pm (Japan time) on Thursday, March 31, 2022. While mourning for the people who were killed in that country, in this service, the immediate cease-fire and the recovery of the normalcy of the victimized will be prayed as well as the enhancement of peace efforts and the tranquility of people in Ukraine.

Military aggression by Russia lost many innocent lives and hurt many people. No sign of the ceasing of bloodshed is not on the horizon, and the risk of military aggression seems to enhance further. The calamity in Ukraine must be ceased; peace in Ukraine ought to be regained, and humanitarian assistance is urgently needed for peace in Ukraine. Many peace-loving individuals and organizations are sparing no efforts in providing their assistance.

Under these circumstances, it is necessary that people in the faith communities are united for offering their prayers for peace in Ukraine. ACRP through the network of Religions for Peace International reaffirms our resolve to act so that we can contribute to the immediate realization of peace in Ukraine. And we are so determined to carry out concrete actions to bring about peace in that country. In unison, let us all share a moment of prayer among us for the realization of peace in Ukraine.
