MIA Prayer Intention: The Work of the United Nations

Today, UN Day, marks the anniversary of the UN Charter, signed on 26 June 1945 in San Francisco, at the conclusion of the United Nations Conference on International Organization, and entering into force on 24 October 1945.

Let us pray for the success of the United Nations in achieving its purposes (Article 1)

  1. To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;
  2. To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;
  3. To achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; and
  4. To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.

and in addressing global issues.
