~july 19, 2012~Loving Lord and Father of all peoples, please forgive us for
anything we have done to condone or accept the violence that is
entrenched in many parts of our world today. Please bring the evil
and hostile trend towards violence to an end. Frustrate and defeat
those who use violence. May your people be an example of
productive, compassionate, and non-violent living. Please give
strength and protection to all who face the threat of violence
because of their faith.
In Jesus' name. Amen.
