Pilgrims Peace Prayer for 4/20/14
Lord, today is a happy occasion for many people.   Easter Sunday!

But alas, many of God’s children the world over cannot rejoice today, Easter Sunday!

Why?  Because they are being brutalized on Easter Sunday!

The millions languishing in our jails, what does Easter Sunday mean to them?

Our wounded vets slaughtered on the altars of the U.S. military-industrial complex, still shaking in their boots on Easter Sunday?

The innocent victims of U.S. drone strikes, do they know that it is Easter Sunday?

“In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me,” even though it be Easter Sunday!

Lord, in your mercy, hear their prayers this Easter Sunday!
