FOR PEACE IN THE WORLD
A REFLECTION in Music and Prayer:
Since 9/11, the need to pray for peace in the world
has become more and more urgent.
Think of the countries where there is no peace.
Think of the places that are in the news today because there is no peace.
As you listen to the music of In Search of Peace,
imagine walking through those streets with Jesus.
What would his prayer be to his father
for these people,
(Click on the arrow at the top left of this audio player.)
Close your eyes and imagine the scenes.
Pray for the situations that come to mind
and for those who are most in need of help.
John 14:27 (NRSV)
Peace will come about when everyone in the world wants peace and prays for it.
Lord God increase and strengthen the desire for peace
in every human heart, so that the temptation
to violence, injustice and revenge
may be overcome,
and people will
no longer live in fear
but in freedom.
