Dear Lord,

We come to you humbly, asking for your mighty hand to be upon this world. Please put an end to wars and strife. Protect those who are in danger, those who are scared, and those in need, especially the vulnerable children. Strengthen and provide for the people striving for peace and justice and lead the world towards ‘just peace.’

In Jesus’ name we pray,
