A Prayer for Faith in God’s Intervention

Father, even when things seem hopeless, we know that through You we are never without hope. We beg Your intervention for a world on the constant brink of war. Beat the swords into plowshares and cause the lion to lie down with the lamb. Intervene in this world that they might avoid the horrors of war and let peace rule in all lands. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

A Prayer for Healing Atrocities

Lord God, the blood of the innocent does not lie idle. It calls out to You for vengeance, for the life of all is in the blood. Lord, put an end to the shedding of innocent blood around the world. Destroy the schemes of the wicked who monger after war and create conflict. Quench the insatiable fire of the greedy and murderous, for these people will not inherit Your kingdom and world to come. Hear our heartfelt cry, Lord. Amen.

A Prayer to End Violence Through Forgiveness

Father, violence is never the answer. It destroys Your good creation and it grieves Your heart when people resort to it. Despite the world knowing who You are, they do not know the peace that You can give them. Lord, I ask that You arise and put an end to all violence. Extinguish pain and misery wherever it is found, and spread Your gift of grace and peace upon the face of creation. Let forgiveness reign and end the bloodshed. Through Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

A Prayer for Grace to Lay Down Arms

Heavenly Father, there are people in this world who live to see others suffer. They take up arms to rattle the foundations of the earth. They seek to destroy and kill. Lord, faithfully change the hearts of these bloodthirsty people. Make them lay down their arms, so that peace may prosper in all lands. Let Your grace become paramount. In Your mercy, hear this prayer. Amen.

A Prayer for Understanding

Lord God, not every region on earth is the same. In some areas, war is all they have ever known. Their lives and families have been torn apart by the hellish ravages of war. Lord, I pray that You intervene by Your mighty power. Grant understanding where there is none. Break the backs of those who are hostile and hungry for power. Thwart the plans of the murderous and tyrannical, for You care for all people in Jesus’ name. Amen.

A Prayer for Hope Against Tyranny

Lord Jesus, You came to set us free from the tyranny of sin, death, and the Devil. Yet, there are also tyrants amongst us who lead nations and rebellions. These tyrants seek to create war and misery amongst the nations. They exalt themselves above all, including You, Lord Jesus. Therefore, shatter their weapons. Knock them down off of their pedestal so that wars may not abound and so that world peace may flourish through Your anointing spirit. Give us lasting hope in a world without war. Amen.
