Please join Christian CND in praying this month as we intercede for issues here and around the world. We believe God has the power to move in all these situations and that prayer goes hand in hand with our campaigning efforts. There are many things to be thankful for as well as issues we want to bring before God.

Things to thank God for:

  • El Salvador and St Lucia becoming parties to the Ban Treaty, and Cambodia signing.

  • The Parliaments in South Africa and Panama voting to support the Treaty.

  • Groups and individuals around the world working for a peaceful and better future.

Things to pray for this month

INF Treaty
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
Donald Trump has announced that the United States will suspend its obligations under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which was signed in the 1980’s and took nearly 2,000 nuclear weapons out of commission. Since the announcement Russia has said it will develop a new generation of short-range missiles.

Please pray with us

  • Pray that during the coming weeks and months diplomatic efforts would succeed and the Treaty could be preserved.

  • Pray that our political leaders would have the courage and strength to work together and seek peace.

  • Pray that God would step in and in His power the situation would be resolved.

  • Thank God for those around the world working to preserve the Treaty.

Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty
I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4
El Salvador and St Lucia have become the latest states to join the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, while Cambodia has recently signed. Many other states continue to proceed with ratification, with the Treaty entering into force once 29 more states complete that process.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the Treaty and the work of the United Nations in bringing it about.

  • Thank God for El Salvador and Cambodia becoming party to the Treaty.

  • Thank god for the votes in favour by the Parliaments of South Africa and Panama.

  • Pray there would be more ratifications this month and that the Treaty would enter into force in 2019.

Christian CND Partners
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles. Psalm 34:17
Christian CND is launching a new initiative to engage churches in campaigning against nuclear weapons. Christian CND Partner churches will stand with us in working and praying for a nuclear weapons-free world.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for Christian CND and the 60 years that our members have supporters have given to this work.

  • Pray that many churches and organisations would join the Christian CND Partners and become part of our movement.

  • Pray that the unity of the church on this issue would be a powerful witness.

  • Pray that God would use this initiative to bring about a more peaceful world.

The global peace movement
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7-8
The world is entering a potentially dangerous period. The Doomsday Clock continues to be set at 23:58, the closest to midnight it has even been. While the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty threatens a new arms race, many nuclear-armed states including the UK, are developing a new generation of nuclear weapons.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for CND and the many other peace groups in the UK working for a better world.

  • Thank God for ICAN and their partner organisations around the world doing the same, often in difficult circumstances.

  • Pray for politicians around the world who stand against nuclear weapons and against war.

  • Pray for a new generation to be raised up by God to take the work forward in the future.

Please keep the Christian CND staff team and Exec in your prayers.
