A Prayer For Today's World
A world at peace would be a Garden of Eden.
Our dear, gracious and loving Heavenly Father,
We come before Thee in prayer at this time to petition Thee for inspiration and a clearer understanding of what we must do to fashion a lasting peace for this Earth that Thou didst bless us with.
We seek to understand how to cope with a virulent ebola virus and so many other conditions and diseases we have not yet learned how to control for the protection of Thy people.
We treasure Thy law and we seek to obey and live Thy commandments in our daily lives and in our relations with strangers as well as those in the household of faith.
We ask Thy blessings we stand in need of, and Thy guidance in all things.
We ask Thee to forgive us the failings we seek to repent of, and we implore Thee to be merciful to those who grant mercy, to forgive those who are forgiving, and to be charitable to all those who stand in need of charity, sustenance, and safety.
These things we ask in the name of Thy Holy Son, even Jesus Christ. Amen
