      On the first day of 2008, the Grand Mufti of Syria shared a special prayer
      for peace, organized by the Syrian Orthodox Church of Aleppo, Syria. Several
      Bishops, clergy and hundreds of faithful gathered in St. Ephrem Cathedral to
      sing hymns, read texts from both the Bible and the Qura¹an, recite
      supplications for peace, and listen to talks on this occasion. In his
      speech, the Grand Mufti reminded the audience that the ³first person to make
      peace was God and His Prophets, and God is still able to make peace to
      humans if humans worked for that end². Other Bishops¹ speakers confirmed
      that peace must be protected and it starts when approaching others with it.
