Praying for peace...

Numbers 6:24-26
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

Prince of Peace,
come and break into our warring world.
Violence is in the streets -- and not just in far away lands.
Violence is in our hearts, our homes, our world...

just this week I realized
the middle schoolers that I spent last week with
they were all born after September 11, 2001
and therefore have lived
in the shadow of the threat of terrorism.

Come, Lord Jesus,
and bring your peace
in Israel and Palestine,
in Ukraine,
in Libya,
in Syria,
in families separated and estranged,
in our streets,
in our homes.

Come and surprise us with YOUR peace.

The Rev will be on the radio Thursday, July 31 @ 5pm.

I am grateful to my friend Don Arnsan
who periodically invites me to be a co-host during the drive at 5!
It's a childhood dream! My brother and I used to pretend to be DJs.
It also makes me laugh because my college classmates voted me "most likely to be a televangelist"!
So far I've made it on the web and on the radio... not yet on TV, but who knows!
