The larger fight for peace

"The challenge is to see that God is in control and that evil is not. All of us are responsible for the world we live in, and there's no getting around it. Each person as an individual makes a difference through his or her own prayers."

Those aren't the words of someone who is sitting back with a detached and idealistic view of world events. Those are the words of a young woman who is expecting her first child and whose husband has been sent to the Persian Gulf. These words come from a recognition that more is involved than a conflict of national interests. There are also very personal battles to be fought as a part of the larger fight for peace—battles with fear, separation from family, uncertainty about the future, concern for the safety of loved ones. Above all, these words proclaim a conviction that prayer can make a practical difference at this time when everyone's efforts are so greatly needed.
