The Pope’s Prayer Intention for January 2021

The Pope calls on us to set aside our differences and pray for unity among all faiths.

In February 2019, Pope Francis and Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, made history after they signed the Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.

The move was widely received as a milestone, not only because it marked the start of a good relationship between Christianity and Islamism, but also because it represented a culture of harmony among faiths.

Human fraternity has always been an important theme to Pope Francis. “The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of the promotion of friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions,” he said. “I want to repeat this: the promotion of friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions.” (Read:

This is also the reason why Pope Francis dedicates the first month of 2021 to remind us about the importance of human fraternity. For the whole month of January, he calls on us to set aside our differences and pray for unity and love among all faiths.

Prayer for Peace by Christians, Jews, and Muslims

Eternal God, Creator of the universe, there is no God but You.
Great and wonderful are Your works, wondrous are Your ways.

Thank You for the many splendoured variety of Your creation.
Thank You for the many ways we affirm Your presence and purpose,
and the freedom to do so.

Forgive our violation of Your creation. Forgive our violence toward
each other. We stand in awe and gratitude for Your persistent love for
each and all of Your children: Christian, Jew, Muslim, as well as those with other faiths.

Grant to all and our leaders attributes of the strong: mutual respect
in words and deed, restraint in the exercise of power,
and the will for peace with justice, for all.

Eternal God, Creator of the universe, there is no God but You.
Amen.
