A PRAYER OF FAITH AND HOPE IN A TIME OF FEAR
In times of fear amid the reality of war,
we pray that one day justice will roll down like water,
and righteousness like a mighty stream.
We pray that all our elected officials
will do justly and love mercy and walk humbly with their God.
We pray that one day war will come to an end,
that people will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks,
that nations will no longer rise up against nations,
neither will they study war any more.
We pray that one day the lamb and the lion will lie down together
and everyone will sit under their own vine and fig tree
and none shall be afraid.
We pray that one day every valley shall be exalted
and every mountain and hill will be made low,
the rough places will be made smooth and the crooked places straight,
and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together.
We pray that with this faith we will be able to adjourn the councils of despair
and bring new light into the dark chambers of pessimism.
We pray that with this faith we will be able to speed up the day
When there will be peace on earth and good will toward all.
We pray for that glorious day,
when the morning stars will sing together,
and the children of God will shout for joy.
