#UTCOP – A Month of Prayer – Where’s the Love?

Where’s the Love?

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.

#UTCOP – A Month of Prayer – Praying Through Poetry

Praying Through Poetry

Father,

There’s so much grief and pain in our hearts
in a world where lives are torn apart
With war and conflict on every side
we need a safe place, shelter to hide

Men, women, children in captivity
Please provide a way for them to be free
With broken hearts and wounded souls
we need your touch to make us whole

Physically, mentally, we need release
from anxiety, shame, into your peace
When all feels dark and black as night
reveal your presence shining bright

Amen
