Ephesians 6: 8-10, St. Paul tells us to put on the “full armor of God” so that we may stand firm against the evil one. In verse 18 he says, “With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
We at The Light Project are, like all of you, very disturbed by the events taking place. In our October email, we asked you to join us in praying the Rosary this month. Considering the horrific situation there and to answer the call of St. Paul, we ask you to join us in praying a daily Rosary asking for the the innocent victims of this terrible war to have the peace and protection of the full armor of God. We also ask our Lord to put an end to these cruel acts of violence.
Included here is St. Francis of Assisi’s Prayer for Peace because we know that universal peace begins with each of us.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
