Praying for Peace!
It is every Christian’s
duty to pray for peace!
This month we face the
beginning of the grim centennial of a war that nobody thought could happen.
August 8, 1914 25,000 were killed at Leige, Belguim.
August 14, 1914 21,000 were killed at Lorraine.
August 15, 1914, 13,000 were killed at Cer in Serbia
August 21, 1914 37,000 were killed at Ardennes,
August 22, 1914 27,000 were killed on the French border
And, probably the worst
day of slaughter in human history,
August 26,1914 93,000 were killed at
Tannenberg, and 17,000 were killed at St. Quetin.
We must never forget to
pray for peace.
