Prayer, Plain and Simple

On September 21, people all over the world will stop what they are doing at high noon and pray for peace for one minute in acknowledgement of the United Nations International Day of Peace. The UN’s goal is get 1 million people to sign the pledge to pray for peace. It will only take one minute to pledge and one minute to pray.

Here is the pledge they are asking people to sign:

I will unite with people all over the world in observing the United Nations International Day of Peace. On September 21, I will pause at noon and, in my own way, pray for peace for one minute. May my one minute, magnified a million times, create a culture of peace that will change the future of humanity.

My name will appear in the Peace Pledge Book to be presented at the United Nations on September 18.

Will you pledge to pray for peace? Sign the pledge.
