Prayer for April 28

Prayer for April 28: Please pray with me. God of the nations, today we pray for peace. Help leaders to recognize that peace isn’t a destination – something to be obtained if the circumstances work out that way.  No, instead, help leaders and their people, to see that peace is a way of life, decision.  It is not an easy decision, nor any easy road to follow.  There will be plenty opportunities to put peace aside in favor of violence, war, division, revenge, and judgement.  Yet, help us to set those easy paths aside.  They all lead to the same result – death.  Give us the courage to choose peace.  Give leaders wisdom to choose peace for their people.  Radically reorient those who choose a more violent path so that swords may be beaten into ploughshares.  Amen.
