One million prayers for peace sought by Sept. 21

An interfaith organization is trying to bring together one million people to pray for peace on Sept. 21. Odyssey Network is launching “A Million Minutes for Peace,” asking people of faith to pray for peace for one minute at noon on the 21st as part of the United Nations International Day of Peace.

Odyssey intends to collect a million of these prayer pledges. The pledge and a list of its signatories will be presented at a ceremony at the United Nations. The Prayer Pledge is being circulated worldwide through over 35 organizations and faith group partners and through Facebook.

Odyssey Networks is supporting the “Million Minutes for Peace” campaign on the Internet and on the Hallmark Channel documentary showcase “Odyssey Networks Presents.” Each week through Sept. 20 a different one-hour documentary film about peace-building will be featured. “Odyssey Networks Presents” airs on Sundays at 7 a.m. ET/PT.

Odyssey Networks is a coalition of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith groups dedicated to producing and distributing media that promotes peace and tolerance and addresses issues of social justice. Established in 1987, Odyssey Networks is a service of the National Interfaith Cable Coalition, Inc.
