Praying for Peace


As I write this in the wee dark hours of my Christian Good Friday, I pray for peace in the whole of our world. Terrorism has affected us again this week. I can barely turn on the television without watching images of mass destruction among yesterday’s normalcy. Camera shots blanket human remains. Jagged lines together with dotted speckles of bright red blood splatter against dusty walls and powdered floors almost as if in an abstract painting. “How can this possibly be,” I ask? “Where did the world go wrong?”

As a mother, my thoughts are with Mary, who witnessed the horror of her only begotten son as he was crucified on Good Friday. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crucifixion_of_Jesus

Whatever your beliefs, I ask you to join me in prayer to put an end to terrorism in our world. Let there be peace among all living people. Everyone deserves a chance to grow old, to live life, to love and be loved. How I wish to pass my television to catch a glimpse of families, happy and playing with children, simply enjoying life. Yes, a human interest story. Remember them? When was the last time you saw one without the hint of terror or war behind it?

Please God, allow people to live freely. Let them walk across streets to visit friends or family. To travel through airports, ride on a bus, or simply have a picnic in a park without worry of a bomb going off. Give our children the freedom to go to school without fear, watch a movie, run a race or sing a song. Please feed our hungry, clothe our naked and house our poor.

Let nature together with  all that is good thrive among the human race once again. Please, God, let there be peace in the world.

Amen

Wishing You and Yours a Peaceful Easter Holiday

  1. Thank you for this needed prayer today. Our freedom is guaranteed in Christ’s death and resurrection. Even though the fowler’s snares are everywhere in our world, we have overcome them through our Lord and Savior. If we ever lose sight of that freedom, we will have lost the battle. Have a blessed Easter, Kim.
