Tweeting: UN Secretary-General comments Joining Annual Prayer Service ahead of General Assembly Session


Recommended Posts

Every year before the UNGA starts, a prayer is said to start it

On the start of the 76th UNGA, Quoting Mr. Guterres:

In these difficult times, people turn to faith.  I turn to faith communities because they can help transform our world.

That’s why I called on religious leaders to join together against the pandemic.  And that’s why I asked them to support my appeal for a Global Ceasefire — to put armed conflict on lockdown and unlock our ability to beat this virus.  I am deeply grateful to the many religious leaders who responded to these calls."

We need these prayers for the wisdom to find solutions, the energy to act on them and the unity that that this gathering represents.

Together, we can realize our vision of a healthier, safer, more peaceful world.

TOKYO -- Japan's Foreign Ministry urged its citizens on Monday to stay away from religious facilities and crowds in six Southeast Asian nations, warning of a possible attack.

The ministry said it had obtained information that “there are increased risks such as suicide bombings."

 

 The warning applies to Japanese citizens in Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar.
