Day of Prayer for Peace September 21


The Daily Iowegian

---- — You are invited to the Moulton Park at 7 p.m. this Saturday to participate in a prayer walk through town. The purpose of a public prayer event is to lift up a vision for peace in our community and in the world.

In 1981 world leaders called for an annual day of prayer for peace. Since then, the idea of such a Day of Prayer has grown worldwide for many nations are anxious for peace. Last year 280 million people in 170 groups in 15 countries around the world were involved in Peace Day activities.

This year’s theme, “Who Will You Make Peace With,?” specifically invites people to pray and act for peace on that day. If you are unable to attend the public event, you are encouraged to set aside a time for prayer on Saturday.
