NCC prayer site receives 88,000 hits
New York City, August 22, 2006 – While nations parse words and actions around a Middle East cease-fire, people of many faiths have been drawing on a new resource to focus the power of prayer on a "holy land" that birthed three major world religions. As the region was wracked with senseless violence and bloodshed, people of faith quickly turned to seasonofprayer.org as part of their agenda for waging peace.
The website seasonofprayer.org has seen more than 88,000 hits since it was launched two weeks ago. The project is a ministry of the National Council of Churches USA's Interfaith Relations and Religions for Peace-USA. The site’s homepage contains an invitation to prayer from several faith leaders including the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Rev. Bob Edgar, general secretary of the NCC.
