"Only by Prayer and Fasting can war be stopped."
Our Lady's message of April 25, 1992
O God of Peace, Father of all nations and lover of mankind, look with compassion on all sovereignties, and upon
their leaders through whom You extend Your Divine Authority to guide Your people to peace and prosperity. We especially ask for Your loving mercy and compassion on the Yugoslav regions and provinces, where Your children are distraught with turmoil and the effects of conflict, bitterness and bloodshed. Crush the power of satan, and all evil spirits of war, hatred, rage, torture and atrocity. In their suffering and poverty, make Your people aware of the presence and loving concern of Your Divine Son Jesus, the Prince of Peace, Who yearns for justice, peace and heartfelf reconciliation among Your children. To this end, we beg You, Heavenly Father, to heed the pleadings of Your daughter, Mary, Queen of Peace, the Mother of Jesus and spouse of the Holy Spirit. Grant her maternal yearnings for a loving harmony to flourish among all peoples, ethnic groups and religions, especially in that area of the world on which she looks with special concern. These and all of the needs of the world we fervently ask in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
