A PRAYER FOR WORLD PEACE
Lord, Jesus You came that the world might know the peace that You have experienced with the Father eternally.
Yet You taught us that in this life there will be wars and rumors of wars.
Nations will rise against nations as violence works itself out in the world.
However, through You, the world may be saved.
O Lord, send Your spirit into the hearts of all men, that the world might know true peace through your abundant mercy. Amen.
