Girls Praying

AUGUST 6-7, 2022

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.


This August 6th, the 77th anniversary of that horrific tragedy, people around the world will be joining in prayer for a future free from the threat of nuclear weapons. Many will be praying on August 6th, but also all weekend long.

If you’re willing to join this global community of prayer at that time, please RSVP HERE and add your pin to the map below HERE. This will allow you to share what you/your organization will commit to doing so that we can all see and draw strength from the global reach of our prayers.

You can also share your participation on social media with the hashtag #NuclearPrayerDay2022. Click HERE to find more social media and marketing materials such as copy and images.


We here at Voices begin each meeting with a particular Nuclear Prayer which you can download HERE. It is also available in many languages on the URI website HERE, using the Google Translate menu at the top of the page. Feel free to use another such prayer, perhaps one of your or your group's own designs, and share this prayer with us when you drop your pin on the map below. We'd love to see and share these prayers with others.

To add your pin to the map above click HERE. We would love to hear about what you/your organization commit to doing. You can also upload photos, documents, and personalized nuclear prayers and more if you feel so inclined to share.
