International Day of Peace

Please pray with us on 21st September


Nearly a quarter of people in the world are affected by fragility, conflict and violence, and conflict is the cause of 80% of humanitarian need. 

21st September is recognised globally as the International Day of Peace, when people across the world join together to promote reconciliation. As people of God, we know it’s vital that any work for peace is underpinned by prayer.

So will you join us in prayer on that special day?

  • We’ve produced a CHIPS prayer card for you to use and share. Please encourage friends and family to pray too – you can order printed prayer cards to pass on by calling us on 020 7078 7439 or emailing

  • Could you also encourage your place of worship to incorporate the CHIPS prayer into their service on 23rd September, which is Peace Sunday, so your congregation can join in praying for peace too?

  • Over the five days from the International Day of Peace, we will be posting a series of prayers for peace on social media and our website. Please join us in those prayers if you are on social media or follow our website blog.   

  • Finally, if you’re on social media, please tell us your plans for the International Day of Peace: let us know why peace is your passion and share your own prayers. Please remember to tag us and use the hashtag #PeaceDayPrayers.  

We’re so grateful to you for your support, both in prayer and donations. Prayer is a vital cornerstone of peacemaking  – and every day we see answers to prayer in the work we do to heal divisions in communities. In Brixton where we are seeing the lives of you people affected by violence changing through our relationship building work in schools and on the streets and in Ghana where former enemies from opposing tribes are now fast becoming friends.

Thank you again for all your support and interest in CHIPS and our work. We believe that together we can make a difference to reducing the levels of conflict and violence, wherever we are. 
Yours sincerely,
