Thought for the day 6 August

August 6

75 years ago today the world’s first atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Since then a number of countries have developed atomic or nuclear bombs (and the number is probably higher than ‘official’ figures). There have been times when there has been real fear of a war between the Great Powers in which such weapons would be used. Now the fear is more that ‘terrorist’ groups or ‘rogue states’ will get their hands on the technology. Possession of nuclear weapons has been a deeply divisive issue in the church, community and nation at large. On this anniversary let’s work and pray for peace, for measures to bring peace to the world – true peace, a just peace, God’s idea of peace

 

Lord we pray for peace in the world, a true and just peace for everyone. We pray that never again will a nuclear weapon be used on the earth
