August 13: Praying for the Peaceful Reunification of the Korean Peninsula

Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.
Romans 14:19

Churches and individuals around the world are asked to join together in prayer for the reconciliation and healing of the divided Korean peninsula. The World Council of Churches and the World Communion of Reformed Churches hopes that a day of prayer on Sunday, August 13 will help to overcome the antagonism that divides the Korean Peninsula and continue to open interaction between communities, churches and people.

“We believe churches across the world can, through prayer, help foster an environment in which peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula can flourish. Please join us in creating a spirit of cooperation and solidarity among the churches of the world as we recognize that peace on the Korean Peninsula is part of our worldwide pilgrimage of justice and peace.”
