Various religious organizations have  expressed their support  for  the Prayer for Peace in the Philippines initiative to be held on July 7 at 12 noon.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), the Jesus is Lord, the El Shaddai, and other religious groups have invited their membership ranks to join in praying for peace.

“The CBCP was invited and we joined,” said Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas, CBCP President.

“Anywhere, everywhere, Filipinos are urged to pray, wherever they are,” said the Pasa Lord Prayer Movement.

The movement is composed of ordinary citizens from various faiths and denominations including Catholics as well as  Charismatic groups, Muslims, Protestants, and Evangelicals.

Mrs. Bing Pimentel, one of the convenors of the initiative, said Filipinos may actually begin to recite the prayer now and even beyond July 7.

“People can come together with family, friends or their communities and churches in their usual prayer venues, or gather in groups at their work places or their schools. We are also asking people to echo the call to prayer to their contacts, friends and family members, and to urge them to do the same so that the call will reach every Filipino in the country and the world,” the convenors appealed.
