Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name JEHOVAH ROHI God our Shepherd Ps. 23:1 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

100 days of Prayer

Day  16

[Pray] ... for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
1 Timothy 2:2 (NIV)


 ‘The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war,’ said U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur. Tasked with overseeing the occupation of Japan after World War II, General MacArthur understood that the fledgling peace had a spiritual element as well as a political element – that there was a ‘spiritual vacuum’ that only Christ could fill. He realised that in war, there were deep wounds that must be healed on both sides. In the midst of any war in our lives, we must go to the cross. Christ’s sacrifice gives us hope that no matter the conflict – we can be rescued; we can find salvation.

Heavenly Father, bless our leaders and give them a spirit of peace. Protect our soldiers, physically and mentally, and give them strength to carry out their duties. Heal those who carry the ‘deepest wounds and scars of war’ and bring them closer to you. Amen
