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

  • The success of Thy Kingdom Come 2021 and the Christian CND gatherings which were part of the event
  • A new initiative to use craft to raise awareness of nuclear weapons issues
  • Webinars hosted by the Network of Christian Peace Organisations, of which CCND is a member

Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us – Romans 5:5
We continue to pray that more states would ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and join the 54 that have already done so. The first meeting of States Parties – those who have ratified the Treaty, is due to take place in January 2022, but there is some doubt as to whether this may be able to go ahead due to a possible clash with the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference which may have to be moved from its currently scheduled date of August this year.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the Treaty and all those who worked to bring into force
  • Thank God for the 54 states that have joined
  • Pray that the 32 states that have signed would quickly complete ratification
  • Pray that campaigners around the world would be strengthened
  • Pray that the nuclear-armed states would engage with the Treaty
  • Pray for those diplomats preparing for the first States Parties meeting

NATO and G7 Summits
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast – 1 Peter 5:10
World leaders will gather in Cornwall for the G7 Summit at the start of June before NATO Leaders gather in Brussels for a summit on Monday 14 June. At both of these summits world leaders will have the opportunity to set the course for a more peaceful, harmonious future without the fear of conflict and the use of nuclear weapons. The last 18 months has shown the common threats facing humanity, and demonstrated clearly that nuclear weapons do nothing to keep us safe from them.

Please pray with us

  • Pray for the leaders who will be attending the summits, that they will have the courage to seek cooperation and peace
  • Pray for the diplomats working behind the scenes, and for all those working in connection with the summits
  • Thank God for those who will be calling for change during the summits
  • Pray that protestors will be protected and their calls will be heeded
  • Pray that decisions will be made with those in mind who do not have a voice inside the room

Iran Nuclear Deal
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful – Hebrews 10:23
Talks around the Iran Nuclear Deal have continued in Vienna, with no direct participation from the United States. There have been detailed discussions on the sanctions imposed by the United States which would have to be lifted if the Biden Administration re-joins the deal which was first struck in 2015. Meanwhile the International Atomic Energy Agency has expressed concern that it has not been able to access information on the Iranian uranium stockpile since February.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God that talks are continuing
  • Pray for the diplomats involved in the discussions at all levels
  • Pray that there would be a breakthrough which would bring the US back into the deal
  • Pray that the Iran Nuclear Deal would be a framework for other states to move away from pursuing nuclear weapons

Situation on the Korean Peninsula
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint – Isaiah 40:31
A summit took place between the United States and South Korea during May, but rather than ending with a plan for peace on the Korean Peninsula it concluded with the lifting of a cap on South Korea’s missile development. North Korea has warned that the move could lead to an “acute and instable situation” on the Peninsula. During our 24  Hour Prayer Room we heard from our friends in the Bargn Nuri Community who continue to work and pray for peace in the region.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for those on the Korean Peninsula who continue to work for peace
  • Pray that the announcement on South Korean missile development will not further destabilise the region
  • Pray that there would be no more missile tests from PyongYang

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