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:

  • South Africa becoming the latest state to ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
  • Talks between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un taking place in Vietnam
  • The Christian CND Embassies Walk, taking place this month.

INF Treaty
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.1 Corinthians 16:13
Donald Trump has now officially announced that the US has suspended its obligations under the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Shortly after that announcement both the US and Russia announced the development of new nuclear weapons systems. There are efforts to try and save the Treaty, which will officially expire in August if nothing changes.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for those working behind the scenes to save the Treaty.
  • Pray for Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and other leaders to have the courage to make a deal.
  • Pray for civil society seeking to make a contribution to the debate.
  • Pray that the UK government would support the Treaty staying in place.

Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
South Africa has become the latest state to ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, taking the number to 29. A total of 50 are needed before it comes into force. South Africa becomes the first state to have previous held nuclear weapons to join the Treaty.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for South Africa signing the Ban Treaty.
  • Thank God for people working in other states towards ratification.
  • Thank God that the Treaty continues to be in the news around the world.
  • Pray that more states would sign and ratify the Treaty this month.

Situation in Kashmir
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.Lamentations 3:22-23
Tensions between India and Pakistan have been rising over the past few weeks following attacks and retaliations. The situation appears to have calmed as Pakistan released an Indian pilot who had been shot down, but as both states have nuclear weapons it is a very dangerous situation.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for a decrease in tensions from their height.
  • Thank God for the decision to release the Indian pilot
  • Pray that the two nations would seek to work for peace.
  • Pray for the Christians living in India and Pakistan, that God would strengthen them at this time.

Nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un met for a second summit to discuss the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula in Vietnam. Unfortunately they were unable to reach an agreement, but both said they would continue the talks.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the willingness of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un to meet.
  • Thank God for the end of the North Korean nuclear testing programme.
  • Pray for those working behind the scenes as the talks continue.
  • Pray that there would be a further summit to discuss a denuclearisation plan.
  • Pray that a successful negotiation would be a model for other states.

Christian CND Embassies Walk
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Our annual Embassies Walk is taking place on Tuesday 12 March. We will be starting with prayers before visiting diplomats from NATO Member States, highlighting the fact that they are able to join the Ban Treaty and stay in NATO. We will also be handing in our petition to Downing Street calling on the Government to sign the Treaty.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the opportunity to take part in the Embassies Walk.
  • Pray for the practical arrangements and weather for the day.
  • Pray that many would attend and that embassies would be willing to speak to us.
  • Pray that the event would lead to a change in position of NATO countries on the Ban Treaty.

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