Prayer’s immediate impact

Your specific support of the spiritual sense of each individual is a powerful and direct help.

History has certainly included a lot of conflict and war. At the same time, there have also always been individuals, groups, and nations advocating for peace and diplomacy, as well as greater understanding and patience regarding national and international differences. 

The consciences and prayers of many readers of this magazine may tend to be oriented toward the end of all war and conflict, neither of which fits with the fact that God is All and all good. These are lofty and vital prayers, and certainly cover an important aspect of humanity’s growth. 

But I’d like to focus in on how we can pray effectively when we’re right in the middle of a human conflict—be it as big as a war visible the world over or smaller and more personal.
