Sunday 20 September 2009
Conflicts between nations and conflicts within nations still claim lives on a daily basis, destroying stability, disrupting education and creating poverty. The United Nations International Day of Peace is 21 September, so The Salvation Army is called to prayer on this theme from Sunday 20 September. Many will want to continue praying for peace throughout the week.
Our Heavenly Father knows when his children suffer and there are many adults and children experiencing pain and bereavement because of war. Jesus said, Are not two sparrows sold for only a penny? But your Father knows when any one of them falls to the ground.' (Matthew 10:29). We pray for peace in the world.
