Global Prayer Calling for Nuclear Abolition
The Beginning and the End are in your hands, O Creator of the Universe. And in our hands you have placed the fate of this planet.
We, who are tested by having both creative and destructive power in our free will, turn to you in sober fear and in intoxicating hope. We ask for your guidance and to share in your imagination in our deliberations about the use of nuclear force.
Help us to lift the fog of atomic darkness that hovers so pervasively over our Earth, Your Earth, so that soon all eyes may see life magnified by your pure light.
Bless all of us who wait today for your Presence and who dedicate ourselves to achieve your intended peace and rightful equilibrium on Earth. In the Name of all that is holy and all that is hoped. Amen.
Prayer written by the Rt. Rev. William E. Swing, President and Uri Founding Trustee, convener of Voices for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons.

Prayer for 20 Million Women Strong
In the spirit of 20 Million Women Strong, I uphold the vision for a world that is filled with love, and that love provides ALL with the wisdom of the ages.
With this love and the power of unity, we stand together to shine our light so bright that healing rains down on all and clears away any disharmony that manifests as the Coronavirus around the world.
Its light is so bright that it opens our hearts and gives us the strength, the courage to stand together to bring about justice for all — and on this day, the International Day of Women, we focus that light on women and children around the world and for our Earth mother.
Our love shines so bright that the heart of Mother Earth beats strong, for She knows that our stand for her — is GOOD. In this light, we go forth, as prayer 20 Million Women Strong.
Knowing that because we are present to the call of this hour, of this time, there is hope for the future our Ancestors have prayed for.
And, because we stand together, it is set in motion, Love will prevail. May there be peace in our hearts and May Peace Prevail On Earth.
