WHEREAS, Our nation is currently locked in a long and lonely war, and

WHEREAS, The conditions precipitated by all war is viewed as deplorable, and,

(2) Urge Christians across America to join in concerted prayer for our President as well as other governmental leaders as they make decisions leading toward peace.
