Prayers for peace needed around world

Published: Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Where and why should a prayer for peace be prayed?

Where? Throughout the whole world.

Why? The whole world is at war with the whole world and with God, our father. That is good in conflict with evil.

Blood shed on the streets, in the workplace, the homes; wherever human life of all ages abides.

Who are the enemies with all this bloodshed dripping from their guns, missile sites, and hatred? Who is to blame? The nation, terrorists, minority groups, gangs, and governments.

The elderly in our country and in all countries around the globe are aware of wars. War after war that caused the taking of human life of sons and daughters. No end? No peace?

The elderly who hurt with pains and disablements at Presence Fox Knoll, Aurora, “pray for peace.” The elderly gather in the chapel to “pray for peace” privately and silently, each in his and her way of faith.
