Things to thank God for:

  • The Irish President indicating that Ireland will ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons early in the New Year
  • The chance to gather and pray ahead of the NATO demonstration in London
  • All that Christian CND achieved in 2019 – and for all our 2020 plans
  • Please also pray for long-standing Christian CND members Roger Lankester who is unwell, and his wife Beryl

Rising tensions with Iran
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus – Philippians 4:6-7
After tensions around the world seemed to ease towards the end of 2019, the killing of an Iranian general in Iraq could be a dangerous development in the region. Iran has pledged to retaliate which has led the United States to threaten 52 cultural sites in Iran. The Iranian government has also announced that it will be lifting the final limits on enriching uranium which were agreed under the Iran Nuclear Deal, which the US withdrew from last year. These are clearly deeply concerning developments.

Please pray with us

  • Pray for world leaders – that they would seek peace in in 2020
  • Pray that the killing of the Iranian General would not spark an escalation in the region
  • Pray that the Iran Nuclear Deal would be saved
  • Pray for ordinary Iranians and others living under the shadow of the threat of war

Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification – Romans 14:19
The Irish President has indicated that Ireland will soon complete the ratification of the Treaty, which will make it the 35th state to do so. It is hoped that the Treaty will enter into force later this year, with 50 states needing to ratify the Treaty. Other states are also in the process of completing ratification.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the work of the UN on nuclear disarmament throughout its history
  • Thank God for the states who have already ratified the Treaty
  • Thank God the states which have signed the Treaty and pray that they would complete ratification
  • Thank God for Ireland for their leadership on disarmament issues

Visit from South Korean friends
You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands – Isaiah 55:12
Christian CND is pleased to welcome a delegation from the Bargn Nuri community in South Korea. They are a Christian Community working and praying for peace on the Korean Peninsula. As part of their peace pilgrimage to Europe we will be hosting a day of events with them in London on Monday 27 January.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the Bargn Nuri community and their work and witness for peace on the Korean Peninsula
  • Pray for a safe journey for their delegation
  • Thank God for the chance to share time together and learn from each other
  • Pray that our time together would be fruitful

Christian CND in 2020
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you – Thessalonians 3:16
Christian CND continues to work and pray for a nuclear weapons-free world in 2020. It’s also our 60th anniversary, and we have plenty of plans to mark this with events throughout the year. There will be lots of chances for supporters to get involved as we use the year to share our vision of peace and message of real security without nuclear weapons.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the past 60 years of Christian CND
  • Thank God for everyone who has been part of the past 60 years of campaigning
  • Thank God for everything we have achieved together in the past
  • Pray for the coming year, that we would be able to reach a new audience
  • Pray for the many events we have coming up

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