On 4th August 1918 King George V met to pray with members of the Houses of Parliament. One hundred days later, the war ended.  Last month, 4th August 2018 was the first day of 100 days of prayer across the country, running until Armistice Day in November. Thousands of Christians across the country are using daily prayers, Bible readings and reflections from 100 Days of Peace and Hope, which can be downloaded, a week at a time from https://www.remembrance100.co.uk/ 100-days/ .  HOPE has also published a beautifully illustrated booklet called Silence to give away at Remembrance events. Silence invites readers to look back with gratitude, and to reflect on eternal themes of faith, hope and love.  Find out more at:  www.remembrance.co.uk.
