Peace: a priceless gift

The human heart cries out for peace, but there are so many warring factions in the world today, it hardly seems possible that lasting peace could ever be established.

Yet nations in the Middle East that have been enemies for years are showing a willingness to come together and talk, to try to settle differences. This is certainly encouraging, yet it will take much more than words to heal deep animosities and fears. There will need to be a radical change of thought and outlook if lasting peace is to be achieved.

During the Persian Gulf war, people of goodwill around the globe prayed for a resolution to the terrible conflict. The power of prayer was felt on the domestic front as well as in the battle zone. The Sentinel of July 1 printed "Letters from the Persian Gulf" (page 20). They recounted how prayer had helped service men and women to feel the tangible reality of God, divine Spirit, during the war.
