We Pray This Season

We pray for peace in our world and for peace in our hearts. We know that we must create peace. There are no other hands on earth but ours. And so we pray most for strength. Strength to endure what must be endured. To overcome what can be overcome. Strength to hold a vision of what can be, without being disheartened by what is.

We pray for hearts moved by love, and the strength to make that love real. We pray that in our lives and in our world, love will triumph over fear.

el - my sister's voice seemed to catch in the family prayer before Christmas dinner as she prayed for God to watch over her son in Iraq.
