From argument to prayer

When I was a political science major in college, I yearned to do my part to advance freedom and brotherhood. But my studies seemed to be saying that humanity was forever caught in a cycle of war and peace. Current events seemed to confirm this. I began to hold very strong political convictions and relished political arguments. Then one day I realized that by arguing and holding opinionated beliefs I was doing absolutely nothing to help the millions of suffering innocents around the world.

Still yearning to help, I began to pray. I had seen prayer bring healing in my own life; couldn't prayer do something for the world that I couldn't do through argument or persuasion?

We'd love to hear from you!
