Pax Christi Call to Prayer & Fasting in current time of wars

Palestine & Israel, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya… “why couldn’t we drive the spirit out? Jesus replied ‘This kind can come out only by prayer and fasting’” Mark 9 v 28 .   Prayer and Fasting leaflet

Prayer and Fasting Calendar you can  view where people are joining with the Prayer and Fasting.  This will be up-dated regularly

Join us in solidarity with others to fast and pray for one or more 24-hour period between 8 September – 7 October

We hope that this simple gesture will
– offer prayerful encouragement to the many peace talks and negotiations
that are taking place
– support peace actions during these days, listed below
– be a small act of solidarity with those lives are destroyed by war

Choose one or more days to fast and use the Prayer for Peace in the Middle EastIf you wish to, tell us which day, and where you are from, and we’ll add that to our Prayer and Fasting calendar.  ( or 0208 203 3884)
