The Presidents of Churches Together in England are joining with Buckingham Palace in recognising the significance of a National Day of Prayer one hundred years ago on 4 August 1918. The National Day of Prayer called that day by King George V, brought the nation together in prayer, asking God to bring peace. The King and Queen Mary joined members of the Houses of Parliament for a special service in Westminster. Services were also held in churches throughout the country. One hundred days later, the Great War ended. From 4 August 2018, in churches across this country, let us mark the 100 days to 11 November with prayers for peace, hope and reconciliation as part of Remembrance 100.
