Prayers for Paris

Where do we go from here? There will be counter-measures, there will be further drone strikes and other retaliations and there will be further volunteers flying out to the Middle East... How do we break this cycle? It's pretty much impossible to imagine the hearts of the people ready to carry out such atrocities ever changing despite all the prayers in the world. But we must keep on praying: for ourselves and for them, for us ALL. 

Are we heading towards a larger scale conflict? Is it inevitable? If it is, it will be a conflict like no other in the past and the thought of how it might pan out frightens me.
