World Invocation Day



On World Invocation Day groups and individuals around the planet unite in prayer and meditation to invoke energies of Light, Love and Spiritual Will, using the Great Invocation. World Invocation Day has been observed annually since 1952.

Eleanor Roosevelt reads the Great Invocation on the first World Invocation Day, 1952

On World Invocation Day, 1952, Eleanor Roosevelt, a pioneering force in the passage of the Declaration of Human Rights at the United Nations, and wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, recorded a brief message which included the Great Invocation. The message was recorded by Mrs Roosevelt at the United Nations.


 "We are living today in a troubled world. In many parts of the world people have a sense of discouragement as to whether they will ever solve their difficulties and it seems to me that those of us who feel that a spiritual leadership is necessary in the world are looking for ways in which to express what we feel. Someone sent me the other day an invocation, its called the Great Invocation, and it seems to me to express the aspirations held by many people throughout the world so I’m going to read it to you on this program."

World Invocation Day




Human Unity

The intention to deepen understanding of the oneness of life and to express that understanding is growing daily within the hearts of people everywhere. In the birthing of a just, interdependent global society we need, above all, more light, love and spiritual will. On June 17 people of all faiths and spiritual backgrounds will invoke these higher energies by using a world prayer, the Great Invocation.


Using the Great Invocation every 15 minutes

On May 26, in all time zones, you are invited to hold an alignment with lighted energies for periods of 15 minutes - using the Great Invocation at the beginning and end of each 15 minutes. Join in for as many 15 minute periods as you wish. So, for the one hour period 9:00 - 10:00 AM, for example, you might use the Great Invocation at: 9:00; 9:15; 9:30; 9:45; 10:00 AM.


The Mindfulness Clock on Your Computer Will Help You Keep the 15 Minute Rhythm

There are a variety of Mindfulness Clocks available on your computer. Many of these can be set to sound a chime every 15 minutes, so as you are continuing with your work on Friday, June 5, you can quietly pause and use the Great Invocation every 15 minutes throughout the day. Imagine the pulse of invocation generated by thousands of people using the Great Invocation on this rhythm.

One Initiative Among Many

The World Invocation Day Vigil was first held in New Zealand in 2000, and since 2003 it has been observed globally, attracting participants from most continents of the world. It is one initative among many for organised, concentrated use of the Great Invocation by groups and individuals on World Invocation Day.
