child-soldierDayLight Scripture – On that day, I will make a covenant for them with the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the creeping creatures of the fertile ground. I will do away with the bow, the sword, and war from the land; I will make you lie down in safety.

Hosea 2:18

DayLight Prayer – Lord, Hasten the day when there is no more war, no more fighting, and no more fear. You have given us this wonderful world to live in, a place where children can grow up, learn and live.

Amen.
