Lord, this week is “disarmament week”, so-declared by the United Nations Department for Disarmament Affairs.
Your son, Lord, Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote more than a century ago that someday there would be a parliament of man and that nations would turn their swords into ploughshares.
We pray for that day when man will no longer raise weapon against man.
To that end, we ask your guidance so that we will work with and support those who would bring about a peaceful world.
(Disarmament Week is declared by the United Nations usually in October)
