Day 10 - Praying for peace

Day 10: Praying for peace

'He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.'
Isaiah 2:4

The coming of Prince of Peace is such an abiding image of hope for Christmas. We all pray for peace. Please light a candle as today we pray for peace in the Middle East. We hope that ‘disputes will be settled’ and that the weapons of war will no longer be used on the suffering people of Syria. We look to a future where no one will train for war and all human creativity will be put to life-giving, not life-taking work. Lord, let your kingdom come amongst us.
