World Vision – A Call to Prayer for Peace in Syria

On Sept 7, starting 7 pm until midnight at St Peter’s Square (Italy UTC + 01:00), Pope Francis asked each and every religious person and those against war to join him “gather together in prayer, in a spirit of penitence, to ask from God this great gift [of peace] for the beloved Syrian nation and for all the situations of conflict and violence in the world.”
Pope Francis, pontiff of the Roman Catholic church, has called on all people of faith, regardless of religious sect or affiliations, to observe Sept 7 as a global day of prayer and fasting for Syria  condoning the use of chemical weapons as a means to settle any domestic or international conflict.
