Care Prayer Theme: Peace and Justice

 It is time to remember the diplomats, UN Peacekeepers, Christian emissaries and others who go to dangerous places to negotiate justice and peace, often in the crossfire. Ask God to protect them, to help them gain people’s trust and persuade them to consider pursuing paths of reconciliation that will benefit everyone.

‘Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.’  1 PETER 3:10-12 (ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION)

"God of all justice, we bring our broken world before You, especially those places blighted by armed conflict, evil oppression and corruption. May Your Church continue to proclaim Your grace and peace, and reach out to people in desperate situations. Amen." - Care
