My Prayer for the Syrian Conflict

THANK YOU, GOD, THAT THE PRESIDENT WILL REFRAIN FROM AUTHORIZING MILITARY ACTION ON THE SYRIAN REGIME FOR ALLEGED USE OF CHEMICAL WARFARE ON ITS OWN PEOPLE. EVEN THOUGH HE HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DO SO, HE WILL TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE POSSIBLE LACK OF SUPPORT FROM CONGRESS AND THE WAR-WEARY SENTIMENTS OF THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, THE PRESIDENT WILL NOW STUDY THE OPTION OF A NON-MILITARY INTERVENTION. THE REALIZATION THAT IT IS AGAINST HUMANITY TO AID ONE BROTHER IN PUNISHING ANOTHER HAS GREATLY INFLUENCED THE PRESIDENT’S DECISION AND THUS WILL SEEK TO LISTEN TO AND EMPATHIZE WITH BOTH WARRING PARTIES AND THEIR SUPPORTERS. A PEACEFUL RESOLUTION OR A COMPROMISE AT THE LEAST WILL BE AGREED UPON. BECAUSE OF THIS PEACEFUL INTERVENTION BY THE PRESIDENT, THE OPINION THAT BY NOT STRIKING OUT IN REVENGE FOR THOSE WHO SUFFERED AND DIED SHOWS HIM TO BE WEAK WILL BE AN ERROR IN JUDGMENT AND INSTEAD IT WILL BE REALIZED THAT IT TAKES MORE COURAGE TO OPPOSE THAN TO COMPLY WITH THE OPINION OF THE MAJORITY. AMEN.

Prayer of gratitude instead of supplication…doesn’t hurt to try, right?
