Where’s the Love?
by Patricia Day
I pray for tried and true discipline and respect to return to human hearts.
I am filled with anguish for the ordinary folk. The mothers, fathers, and siblings deeply impacted by terrorism, war, and famine. This world can be an ugly place; made so by the greed and cruelty of vicious individuals who show no caring traits. Filled only with a salacious appetite for power they destroy anyone and anything standing in their way.
I pray for God’s peace in this world. I pray for each of us to be impacted so deeply by the distress of others that we do something to help them. In any way we can. That we do not stand by as good people are eliminated simply because they choose what is right and refute what is wrong.
I pray that world leaders will stand up to the perpetrators of terrorism and determine to seek and bring to justice the monsters wreaking havoc on earth.
My prayer is that love: respect: compassion and integrity rule once again, and evil acts are overcome quickly and effectively.
