God, today I lift up the world leaders. Give them wisdom; give them courage; give them minds of peace. There is so much death and destruction in this world, and at times I feel disheartened, but, I know where to turn -- to you, my father, who makes all things right. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
-- Johnnie Mae Holland
