Mid-Week Boost: Pray For Peace (1 month in)

Eleanor Roosevelt kept this poem in her pocket during WWII:

Dear Lord: Lest I continue my complacent way, help me to remember somehow out there a man [or woman] died for me today. As long as there be war I then must ask and answer: am I worth dying for?

This plaque with the poem stands at the Pearl Harbour National Memorial marking the day the then US President marked as historical infamy and a day the Ukrainian President recently invoked. War has raised it’s maddening cruel life-snatching head again.

Hear us oh Jehovah Shalom, You are our peace.
