On 4 August 1918 King George V, the Queen’s grandfather, met to pray
with members of the Houses of Parliament as part of a National Day
of Prayer. One hundred days later, the war ended.
We have compiled these 100 thoughts and prayers for peace,
together with ideas to promote peace and reconciliation, to encourage
churches, schools and communities to reflect on the past and bring hope for the future.
These thoughts, prayers and peace-making actions can be used
by individuals and groups at any time, but especially in the 100 days
leading up to Armistice Day on 11th November.
We are grateful to the Archbishop of Canterbury and to the many
Christian denominations, ministries and chaplaincies who have
contributed these readings and prayers for peace as we continue
to pray for peace in our time.
