After the community disruption for two months around Christmas, 2012, many people are concerned about parades in 2013.  I have already started to pray for them, especially those places where there has been serious confrontation in the past.  I simply ask God to bless those who march, those who protest, and those who support both groups.  When we ask God to bless He takes us at our word. He does bless and change and transform.  That helps to bring healing and peace and calm.

This is a very impartial, non-judgmental and effective way to pray.  May I recommend it to you.
