Listen to Prayer for Peace to Rain
A Vigil for Our Planet
In aid of the Australian bushfire appeal
Prayer for Peace to Rain prompted the vision of a global vigil on Sunday 8th March, International Women’s Day 2020. The Vigil, dedicated to our children and our children’s children, is a call to action to people of all faiths and none to stand together as one. Its purpose is to inspire a concerted effort of profound reflection, prayer and peace.
Event Organiser: Lizzie Davies.
