Welcome by the host, Elder Whippy.
Extending our heartfelt gratitude to the religious leaders and representatives/members from Shri
Sanatan Dharm, Arya Samaj, Ahmadiyya Anjuman- Ishat- Lahore, Sunni Jamaat, Presbyterian church,
Latter Day Saints, Methodist church, Bahai faith, Fiji Council of Churches, Pacific Conferences of
churches, students from Corpus Christi and FNU, Catholic women’s league, focolare group gathered
at LDS hall to pray for Peace and Harmony.
With a deep sense of solidarity, many gathered to share the pain and anguish of those who suffer
the terrible effects of terrorism, war, and violence. The aim of this religious prayer gathering was to
open our hearts to the creator and stand together in solidarity to hold victims in our prayers.
The prayer session began with an Interfaith prayer. We were able to pray and read appropriate
scripture texts together for God’s Peace, unity, comfort, mercy, kindness, for the nations, Justice,
hope, understanding and respect, try to bring peace into our world especially those who have been
affected, killed by war, violence and abuse despite the religion and culture we come from. The
various faiths shared that the life of every human person has equal dignity before the Creator, who
created us all in his image.
After each prayer, there were moments of silence observed by the congregation to
remember the souls, the loved ones and to restore justice and peace. Let Peace fill all hearts, our
world, our universe. Together we strive for a world united in faith and peace.
