In July 2014, about 4 months after I started my blog, I noticed that people from
other countries were reading some of my posts. The following is the post I wrote
back then and it still applies today:
Life is precious, and not only do I pray for the unborn, I pray for those in war torn
countries. Starting my blog has been an amazing experience for me. I'm able to see
the different countries that people are from who read my posts. It doesn't specify cities,
but it does list how many people from each country have viewed my blog. I'm humbled
that anyone reads my blog.
Because of all the fighting/wars that are going on, I worry about the people in many of
the countries I see come up on my blog stat section. I hope that they are ok. I just want
them to know that I am praying for them and for their families. I don't know their
names, I don't know what they look like, but for some reason, they read my blog.
Each day I don't see their country listed, I place my hand over the map where it
should be colored in and I pray for them. Each day I do see their country listed,
I place my hand over the map and pray for them.
 There  are so many wars going on in our world right now, so much violence.

Dear God, please watch over all these countries where war has broken out.
Please God, protect the innocent people and their families.
Please God, open their government's eyes to the devastation that war is causing.
Please God, guide their leaders to a peaceful solution.
Thank you God, for our many blessings,
please be with all those who are in need.
Please God, show us, guide us to how we can best help others.
You created us all, please help us to love our neighbor,
care for one another, and to pray for those who seek a better life.
 In Jesus Name I pray Dear Lord, Amen.

As Catholics, we pray The Divine Mercy Chaplet. This prayer is for the whole world.
It is really beautiful when we sing this Chaplet. (I'm singing this as I'm typing)
The refrain goes like this:
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
If you listen to the Catholic radio station 91.5 FM, they sing the Divine Mercy Chaplet
at 3:00 pm each day.
To pray The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy:
(It is easier to keep up with if you have a rosary, but if you don't,
 you can count on your fingers.)
1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, Pray (1) Our Father, (1) Hail Mary
and The Apostles Creed.
2. Prayer - (Pray this 1 time) Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood,
Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ,
in atonement for ours sins and those of the whole world.   
3. Pray this refrain 10 times:
  For the sake of His sorrowful passion,
 have mercy on us and on the whole world.
You repeat steps (2) & (3) for a total of (5) times.
4. Conclude with (3 times)
  Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,
 have mercy on us and on the whole world.
5. The sign of the cross and Amen.
It is a beautiful, peaceful prayer. I find myself humming or singing it a lot.
I also pray it if I wake up during the night. 
May God Bless you and keep you safe wherever you are, wherever you live.
May God help us to love and care for one another.
