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. On the 77th anniversary of that horrific tragedy, Voices members and co-hosts inaugurated the 1st annual Nuclear Prayer Day at 8:15 AM PST on August 6, 2022. This inaugural video and its message of urgency, the power of prayer, and our shared hope for peace, spread beyond the Facebook live stream and was a part of many Nuclear Prayer Day events, including the NPT review at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

People all over the world united in prayer for a world free of nuclear weapons. It was a truly moving event that reached well over 100,000 people. We hope the global reach of our prayers continues to grow with each annual Nuclear Prayer Day. We welcome your prayer submissions all year long. Please email us at to send us your own Nuclear Prayer and stay tuned for details on next year's event.
