Lord, today we rejoice that India and Pakistan have agreed to stop trading artillery fire in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir. We are thankful both nations have also agreed to reinstate a 2003 cease-fire. Heavenly Father, we pray for your peace to descend upon those involved in making these decisions. Reassure them of their wise choice. Give them inner resolve to follow through with this agreement, in order to save lives and bring harmony to lands that have long craved it. We pray these governments will be able to resolve their disagreement about control of this disputed region while in this season of calm. We desire lasting peace between these lands. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
