God loves us and has given us the power to be instruments of His merciful love. This relevant and timely book gives the faithful a way to help so many people affected by war and violence--a way of helping through prayer.
Praying for Peace Around the Globe is a loving and thoughtful collection of prayers for those suffering in different parts of the world. Illuminating the unrest that affects so many souls, these prayers are written to ask God to watch over people in many countries across the globe. Each prayer is prefaced with historical information and background on the difficult issues and situations facing people in selected countries.
Combined with a process and service for interfaith prayers for peace and a calendar of anniversary dates of significant peacemaking or violent events in various countries, this book provides a way for the faithful to thank God for their many blessings and to embrace the world as Jesus did through hope for peace and love of God.
"In a world torn apart by violence, we turn to our creative, redeeming God begging for the gift of peace. This volume is not only a "prayer book," it is also a call to do justice, the basis of lasting peace."
+Robert F. Morneau
Pastor of Resurrection Parish, Green Bay
