NUCLEAR PRAYER DAY
Sunday, August 6, 2023
On August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. Since then, the potential for nuclear catastrophe has grown to an unimaginable scale. The threat of nuclear weapons is still upon us as the war in Ukraine continues. This day, Nuclear Prayer Day is one we invite all people of all faiths and walks of life to participate in by utilizing the power of prayer.
Voices for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons
Composed of dynamic voices from across the political, professional, spiritual, and geographical
spectrums who have united in a single purpose - to eliminate nuclear weapons once and for all.
