Things to thank God for:

  • A letter from 31 Anglican Bishops calling on the UK government to sign the Ban Treaty
  • Support for the Ban Treaty in the House of Lords during a discussion
  • Plans to celebrate the Ban Treaty entering into law
  • Another fruitful year of campaigning

Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
Following the 50th ratification of the Treaty in October it will enter into international law on Friday 22 January. While there were no additional signatures or ratifications in November, there are a number of states ready to complete the ratification and join the Treaty. During a short discussion on the Treaty in the House of Lords the government restated opposition to the Treaty but there was support from other speakers. Also in November 31 Anglican Bishops signed an open letter calling on the government to sign the Treaty.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for all the states that have joined to date
  • Thank God for the Anglican Bishops who signed their open letter
  • Thank God for the speakers in the House of Lords supporting the Treaty
  • Pray that Christians would grow in awareness of the Treaty
  • Pray that states would continue to join the Treaty in the coming months
  • Pray that the nuclear-armed states including the UK would engage with the Treaty

Activities around the Entry into Law of the TPNW
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy. Colossians 1:11
The entry into law of the Ban Treaty in a key opportunity to raise awareness not only of the provisions in the Treaty but also of the position of the majority of the international community in opposing nuclear weapons. It is also a chance for Christians in the UK and further afield to speak with one voice in calling on the UK government to sign the Treaty. Christian CND will be joining friends in the Network of Christian Peace Organisations in a range of activities including a briefing for Christian leaders and a celebration on Friday 22 January. We are also encouraging supporters to organise letters from local faith leaders to the media to raise awareness.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God for the Treaty entering into force on Friday 22 January 2020
  • Thank God for the Network of Christian Peace Organisations and the unity among believers on this issue
  • Pray for all of the events planned around the world to celebrate the entry into law
  • Pray that many Christian leaders would attend our briefing event
  • Pray for a joyful celebration on Friday 22 January
  • Pray for a greater awareness of the Treaty among Christians

Global security situation
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
The assassination of Iran’s leader nuclear scientist has raised fears that there could be a conflict within the region. Outgoing US President Donald trump reportedly wanted to bomb Iran in the week after the election but was stopped by advisors. It is clear that the final weeks of his presidency could be very dangerous for the world. Meanwhile President-Elect Joe Biden has been supporting the Iran Nuclear Deal and Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), but it is doubtful that there is sufficient political support to save them.

Please pray with us

  • Thank God the Treaties which have placed control on nuclear weapons
  • Thank God that Donald Trump was talked out of an attack on Iran
  • Pray for restraint from the Iranian leadership after the assassination in November
  • Pray for dialogue between states in the region and around the world
  • Pray for the incoming President as he makes difficult decisions on a range of issues

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