A peaceful peace in the world can only be achieved through prayer and devotion, says the Presbyterian Church’s (PC) President.
The Presbyterian Church (USA) is urging members and their families to pray for peace during the Christmas holiday.
“In the name of the Most Holy Father Jesus Christ, and in the name and on behalf of His Church, we pray that all Christians around the world may unite in prayer for peace and for the restoration of the peace in our world,” the statement said.
The PC is urging Christians to pray together with friends, family and co-workers for peace as well as to attend church services.
“Peace can only come when all of us share in the same desire to make peace in this world, and peace in God’s kingdom,” the PC statement said, “and to love God with all our heart and soul.”
A Presbyterian church that prays for peace has been used as a tool to promote a number of other religions in the US.
On Christmas Eve, a church in New York City that prides itself on being the “peace church” will be held in its place at a different church, a Catholic parish.
In a video posted by the Catholic Church on Facebook, church members and parishioners will share their Christmas wishes with a choir.
The Presbyterian Church has a history of celebrating holidays that are considered religious in nature, including the holidays of the Nativity and of the birth of Jesus.
In addition, the PC has hosted Christmas parades and religious celebrations across the US, with some of its parishes also holding special events to celebrate Christmas.
A Presbyterian church has also hosted a “peace parade” in the heart of Washington DC, with people from across the nation participating in the festivities.
