What if even the unbelievers --and all the believers --would pray for peace? and for the safety of our soldiers and the civilians --and the ones who were recently kidnapped? What if even the scoffers and skeptics would get on their knees and say something like:
"Father God --if you are OUT there --PLEASE HELP US NOW! Forgive us our sins --show us what they are - that we may truly repent! Show us yourself and your Truth --and help us. Soften the hearts of the tyrants in Iran, in No. Korea, in China and Cuba. Soften the hearts of Osama and the Taliban and the imams and mullahs who are preaching hatred. Bring peace to Jerusalem! And just in case the Christians are right and the Bible is true --I pray all this in the name of Jesus --because you said that what we ask in Jesus' name will be done according to your will. You said the prayers of righteous people avail much. We fall short of your standard and plead for your mercy. We are unworthy but ask you to please protect us from diseases, the hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, droughts, famine, tsunamis, volcanos, global warming and fires --and could you please return the honey bees that we may have the blessings of the harvest you have so faithfully given us for years? We'll give you all the praise. In the name of Jesus we pray these things. AMEN."
"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible
