Magnetic Prayer

At our youth group we have certain prayer stations set up to help the students spend time time in quiet with God. One of these stations consists of a number of magnetic words on a metal sheet, which students are encouraged to rearrange to form prayers. Last week I glanced down and saw the prayer displayed below, “Believe in peace.”

I’m rather careful about using the word “believe,” as I find we use it a bit too liberally 1, but in this instance I’ll make an exception. It seems like a great many people in the world are resolute in achieving glory through war, and not enough believe in the blessings of genuine peace.

“Believe in Peace”

  1. People use the same word to describe God, “true love,” Santa, and science. It gives me a headache.
