International Day of Peace

Oh Lord, more than ever
we need Your peace
to descend upon this earth
You must weep
when young girls are kidnapped
and forced into marriages
that have nothing to do with love
or forced to sell their bodies
for someone else’s profit
you must weep
when schools must close
due to threats of violence
you must weep
when nations rage and go to war
over differences of opinion
you must weep
at domestic abuse
at bullying
at racism
at violence and hatred of all forms
Oh Yes, Lord
more than ever
we need your peace
to descend upon this earth
