Prayer for April 19

Prayer for April 19. Please pray with me. On this Easter Wednesday we pray for an end to war.  Humanity has lived by the rule that when you get hit, you hit back, only harder.  Yet, where has this gotten us Lord?!? It has only brought more death and destruction.  And for what?  In this week of Easter, we pray that our hearts would be open to a new way of living and interacting with one another.  Help us to see Christ’s example – when he was hit, he didn’t hit back, but he loved all the more.  It’s not easy and frankly we can’t do this on our own.  We really haven’t ever tried.  We’ve given up before we’ve even given it a shot.  So, step in Lord.  Give us the courage to love, even when we get hit.  It makes no sense in the world, yet it the only way to end the insanity.  Amen.
