There is so much going on in the world right now that can make us afraid.
There are the wars in Syria and Iraq, in Israel and Palestine, and in Ukraine.
There is the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
There is the ongoing threat of terrorism.
Fill us with trust in you so that there will be no room for fear.
Give our leaders and the leaders of other nations and groups the desire to work for peace and the wisdom to know how to foster it.
Give medical professionals and researchers wisdom and insight as they work to treat and to find cures for dreaded diseases.
Cause our hope for the future to be stronger than our worries about the present.
Grant us your peace …
