Robert Schuller Family Praying for Peace

Praying For Peace

There is always beauty and calm to be remembered....even in the midst of turmoil

What a devastating news week this has been.  First the unfathomable downing of the Malaysia Airlines passenger jet which was fired on by a missile, then the escalation of fighting in The Holy Land which has resulted in closing the International airport in Tel Aviv for many inbound and outbound flights.  I won't for a minute believe that God caused any of this but I do believe that God has a hand in the healing of the hearts of people.  I know that there are many broken bodies but also broken hearts.  For all of the families affected by the terrible airline disaster....heal their hearts.  For all of the people affected by the continued war in Israel and Palestine, heal their hearts and heal their land.

Just last week at a prayer service that Donna and I spoke at In Washington D.C....a Palestinian and a Jew lighting a peace candle.  Sometimes political interests get in the way of lasting peace.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."   Philippians 4:8 NIV

Even though there is pain and destruction all around, try to keep yourself in a peaceful state so that you may pass that peace to others.   The world needs it.

  1. True words. We must stay positive and not be steeped in the atrocities of militants or other groups. That is a sense of victory for the militants.The world is better than centuries past, I believe though today's faster, more graphic news, appears we live in worse times. Yes, there are bigger bombs and news is instantaneous but that makes us more compassionate as a whole peoples, unified under one God I think. The Global Peace Conferences or the meeting of an Israeli and Palestinian in Washington shows that goodness is still outshining the wickedness of war and strife. God wants us to Love one another and in the end HIS will is done. Yes there are those who will fight peace unless 100% their way and after God's peace.... a later war may happen. But HIS peace can begin with us, one by one, staying positive and loving others as we would be loved.
    J-M with Love to all
