Prayer protects and preserves human rights

Originally appeared on

It’s well documented that information gained through torture techniques is unreliable. And yet torture continues to be practiced—with varying degrees of governmental sanction—in nations around the world.

After reading yet another report on this subject, I felt compelled to pray. I needed some spiritual light to lift my thoughts above revulsion and dismay to a solid conviction that God is able to reach all people in trouble, no matter where they are. And not just that, I needed the conviction that divine Truth is fully capable of turning people away from the error of believing that torture can have a useful purpose.

We'd love to hear from you!
