Oh God, we turn to you in desperation at this time when conflict threatens to
engulf the world. Enter the hearts and minds of people all over the world, calming
and soothing their thinking, so that they can consider the implications of their
actions for others, especially the innocents who are being buried under an
avalanche of destructive forces. Give us all some understanding of how we can play
our part in turning our world into something like the place you indent it’s to be.
