On August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. Since then, the potential for nuclear catastrophe has grown to an unimaginable scale.
This August 6th, the 77th anniversary of that horrific tragedy, people around the world will be joining with Voices – United Religions Initiative – worldwide – in prayer for a future free from the threat of nuclear weapons. Many will be praying on August 6th, but also all weekend long.
You can also share your participation on social media with the hashtag #NuclearPrayerDay2022. Click HERE to find promotional materials such as social media copy and images. Click HERE to view the press release.
We here at Voices (of United Religions Initiative) begin each meeting with a particular Nuclear Prayer which you can download: It is also available in many languages on the URI website HERE, using the Google Translate menu at the top of the page. Feel free to use another such prayer, perhaps one of your or your group’s own designs, and share this prayer with us when you drop your pin on the map below. We’d love to see and share these prayers with others.
