I pray for peace (Triennium, Day 2)

The exhibit was only open for an hour at the Presbyterian Youth Triennium today. But the hall was packed. Many participants stopped by the booth of the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations, the Office on Child Advocacy, and the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program. Participants added prayers to the Peace Prayer Wall (we were too busy to get a picture; we will add that tomorrow). Prayers were offered for peace that included (and often repeated:)
