Daily Prayer for Peace
The Daily Prayer for Peace worship service is held at 1:00 p.m. central time, 365 days a year at Community of Christ Temple, Independence, Missouri. Each day a prayer
is offered for a specific country based on the World Council of Churches’ ecumenical prayer cycle, which joins our prayers with that of even more Christians
throughout the world.
Most Community of Christ congregations incorporate the Prayer for Peace in their weekly worship. Many members of the Community of Christ pause wherever they are at
1:00pm central time to join in the daily prayer.

peace and justice. As a team that represents lay members and ministers in addressing peace and justice questions of the world church body, the team is uniquely able to
