Manila, Philippines

The fourth consecutive SOPP in Manila was held at Miriam College, with over 80 participants. Upon arriving, participants were invited to write down their own prayers for peace in various parts of the world, which they then placed on or near the peace pole at the center of the room. A Brahma Kumaris member led a guided meditation, and an interfaith youth group performed a prayer with singing and dancing. Then, six prayer leaders presented prayers from different faiths and traditions, after which participants prayed for peace in each country, with the national flags displayed on screen. The ceremony concluded with global prayers and communal singing and dancing.
