Scripture: Micah 4:1-5

We long for that day when our soldiers come home and no longer have to go to war.
We long for that day when our nation’s leaders seek peaceful solutions without the threat of force.
We long for that day when we no longer fear random shootings and acts of violence.
We long for that day when lives lived are more important than getting the things we want.
We long for that day when we will all put down our swords, our guns, our fists, our vengeful voices,
and live into the ways of God’s peace.

Prayer: God of peace, we long for that day still coming when nation shall not lift up sword against nation, when we will no longer study war any more. Guide us into the ways of peace. In the name of the Christ, who is coming, we pray. Amen.
