Peace and justice

All their activity is filled with sin, and violence is their trademark (Isaiah 59; 6; NLT).

Their feet run to evil, and they rush to shed innocent blood (Isaiah 59:7; NRSV).

The way of peace they do not know, and there is no justice in their paths (Isaiah 59:8; NRSV).

Follow the way of love (1 Corinthians 14:1; NIV).


I pray for those
Who want to bomb their way
To peace and justice –

For all the people,
And governments
Who imagine this approach
Can ever work.

Please heal their minds,
And hearts,
And souls,
So they can understand
That the only way
To establish peace and justice
In this world
Is to follow the way of love.
