As the international situation worsens in country after country, I pray each day for peace in every mind, heart and soul:
His talk is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart (Psalm 55:21; NIV).
All wars start in someone’s heart,
So, Lord, I pray for all –
That everyone will hear your voice,
And listen to your call
To love our neighbours and our foes,
No matter what they do,
To bless, serve and forgive them –
Then they’ll love themselves, Lord, too.
Love your neighbour as yourself (Mark 12:31; NLT).
