World Council of Churches invites churches worldwide for a global prayer campaign for peace on the Korean Peninsula from 1 March to 15 August: “We Pray, Peace Now, End the War!”.

During the campaign 70 prayers and stories will be published, corresponding with a commemoration of 70 years since the Korean War in 2020. In cooperation with the National Council of Churches in Korea, prayers will be published online each week.

Representatives from churches in Korean Peninsula and worldwide are invited to reflect on the significance of 70 years, express their hope for the future and share the prayer with us, writing to media@wcc-coe.org.
