Religious Leaders from 19 Countries United in Prayer To Overcome COVID 19


While the daily confirmed cases of COVID 19 are consistently increasing worldwide, the world religious leaders from seven major religions gathered at the online meeting for the World Interfaith Joint Prayer Conference on the 26th of October.


Approximately 600 people from Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Sikhism, Confucianism, Christianism, and Islam in 19 countries across five continents attended the conference to unite the voice of prayers for the eradication of COVID 19.



The conference was organized by Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) with supports from religious leaders cooperating with HWPL. It aimed to unite various religious groups to deliver a message of hope to people and religious communities of the world suffering under COVID 19 and create a platform to overcome the crisis transcending religions and continents.


HWPL is a Korea-based international peace NGO for global peace and cessation of war. Affiliated with the UN ECOSOC and the UN DGC, HWPL has carried out global peace movements, including interfaith dialogue meetings called World Alliance of Religions Peace (WARP) Office Meeting.


The WARP Office Meeting has been conducted in 128 countries since 2014 to strengthen the communication among religious leaders based on mutual respect and to accomplish interfaith reconciliation to resolve all the global conflicts caused by religions and achieve world peace.


Even after the global outbreak of COVID 19, an average of 107 WARP offices in 70 countries has held online WARP Office Meetings worldwide monthly.


Iftikhar Ahmad Ayaz, Chairman of the International Human Rights Committee, said “Today the whole world is facing a catastrophic COVID 19 Pandemic, and thousands continue to die. Humanity must turn to prayers and seek the Creator’s mercy to bring peace and harmony in our lives. HWPL must be congratulated to take the initiative to bring together all the faiths to pray together. I believe that religious leaders from around the world taking part in such conferences have a crucial role to play. Together, we can shine the light of hope and unite humanity in prayers to stay in peace.”


The conference consists of a keynotes address from HWPL addressing opening remarks and purpose of the conference, congratulatory remarks, and speeches from six religious leaders representing Islam, Hinduism, Christianism, Judaism, and Sikhism.


Marcel Andres Tanguilan, the Administrative Pastor of Knox United Methodist Church, delivered, “To me, it has been five years working with HWPL. Through the dialogue of the religious scriptures, we always discussed the true understanding of the scriptures. I know that we are having a difficult time because of this pandemic. It would be hard as alone, but it will be possible for us to win together, and we can overcome it as we gather with one heart in HWPL, despite our differences.”


In the speeches, religious leaders introduced their methods of prayer based on each religion’s tradition and scripture and delivered messages to defeat the COVID 19 crisis with collaborative efforts made by religious communities.

Dawud Noibi, the former Executive Secretary of the Muslim Ummah of southwest Nigeria, said, “Fellow religious leaders across the world, let us do all we can to give comfort to patients in our respective countries suffering from COVID 19. Let us help in propagating this praiseworthy work of HWPL by embarking on regular joint prayers in our respective countries for divine intervention towards an end to the COVID 19 pandemic and a speedy recovery for those still suffering from it.”


In the prayer session, all participants simultaneously prayed together for recovery of the world through spiritual reflections and the ends of COVID 19 in each language and each religion’s tradition. At the end of the conference, the song of peace with every participant’s wishes was resonating in harmony via zoom.


Ashin Htavara, General Secretary of All Burmese Monks Representative Committee, said “HWPL organized this prayer conference with various religious leaders from all over the world. This is the unprecedented prayer conference for people of different religions to pray together with one heart. God will hear our prayers.”


As an extension of WARP Office Meetings, HWPL organized a series of relay global interfaith prayer meetings in October, hoping to end the coronavirus crisis soon. HWPL has hosted online interfaith prayer meetings over 20 times with participants in 70 countries this month.

  1. What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!


    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name'” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!
