Will peace always be elusive?

In most of human history there has been war somewhere in the world. So what is the good of praying for peace?

The world barely heaved a collective sigh of relief over the peaceful reuniting of Germany, and the political liberation of parts of Eastern Europe, when another powder keg blew up in the Middle East. Armed conflicts are constantly flaring up in the world, some of them simmering for a long time.

Can there be such a thing, then, as permanent peace? And can you and I do anything to help mankind find it? Truly, universal peace has to include each one of us. We should never underestimate the effect of our good thoughts and actions. Most significantly, we can pray. There is a way to pray that will make a difference.

Even simple truths heal!
