PRAY FOR PEACE
In the Name of the Prince of Peace
For the past 5 years, World Methodist Evangelism has called for members of the worldwide Methodist/Wesleyan Movement to join together on the first Sunday in Advent to pray for peace. During this time of stress and conflict Wesleyan/Methodists are called in the name of Christ Jesus, the Prince of Peace, to lift up a united prayer that peace and righteousness may reign on earth as it is in heaven.
Congregations are encouraged to join with other churches in the World Methodist Council in their area for prayer together for peace in the Name of the Prince of Peace on the First Sunday in Advent, 2012, December 2. It is the time when Christians celebrate the coming of the Prince of Peace and sing in every tongue, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace….”
