Pray for terrorists

To the editor:

Right now, one of the most powerful and best ways to deal with our national security is to pray. Jesus tells us that wherever two or more of us are gathered in His Name, He is there in our midst.

I propose that each of our small Christian groups in every parish in our diocese adopt a terrorist cell, perhaps a cell which is closest to its goal of death and destruction.

By holding these terrorist cells in prayer, we can effect profound changes in ourselves and in those for whom we pray, since it is impossible to harbor negativity when we pray. Our prayer should be not only that Jesus change the hearts and minds of those so inclined to terrorism, but that He also change our hearts and minds that we be one in Him.

With God’s grace, we have nothing to lose and so much to gain.P>
