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:

  • Manchester becoming the first city in the UK to formally support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
  • The Parliament of South Africa voting to approve the ratification of the Treaty.
  • Christmas, and the coming of the Prince of Peace who gives us hope for the future.

Things to pray for this month

INF Treaty
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be calledWonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, Isaiah 9:6-7
Donald Trump has announced formally that he will withdraw from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (known as the INF). This means that US nuclear weapons could be based in Europe and makes the chances of a nuclear exchange in Europe more likely. Unfortunately the UK is supporting this decision rather than backing the Treaty.

Please pray with us

  • Pray that there would be a change of heart and the INF Treaty would continue.
  • Pray against a new arms race and escalation of nuclear tensions.
  • Pray for the leaders of other nuclear-armed states, that they would have the courage to seek restraint.
  • Pray that the UK government would want to preserve the Treaty and work with others to do so.
  • Thank God for those working to preserve the Treaty.

Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty
“The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.” Luke 10:2
Manchester became the first UK city to pass a motion in support of the Ban Treaty, calling on the government to sign. Meanwhile the South African parliament has supported the country ratifying the Treaty and other states continue their own ratifications processes.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for Manchester City Council passing a motion in favour of the Ban Treaty.
  • Thank God that the South African parliament has passed a motion in support of Treaty ratification.
  • Pray that more councils in the UK would pass similar motions in 2019.
  • Pray that South Africa and many other states would ratify the Ban Treaty in 2019.

The work of Christian CND in 2019
‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. Revelation 3:8
Christian CND continues to work and pray for a nuclear weapons-free world in 2019. As we launch our Christmas fundraising appeal, we have big plans and believe God has called us to do more in 2019 as we work for peace. As well as seeking to increase engagement of Christians on nuclear weapons issues there are a number of exciting initiatives including our Partner scheme that will be launching in the New Year.

Please pray with us

  • Pray for a bountiful harvest from our Christmas appeal.
  • Thank God for Christian CND members, staff and Executive Committee for all they do.
  • Pray that many more Christians would engage with nuclear weapons issues in 2019.
  • Pray that God would bring many churches and groups into the Christian CND Partner scheme as we work together for peace.

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