The War Prayer


Written by Mark Twain during the Philippine-American War in the first decade of the twentieth century, The War Prayer tells of a patriotic church service held to send the town's young men of to war. During the service, a stranger enters and addresses the gathering. He implies to the patriotic crowd that their prayers for victory are double-edged - that by praying for victory they are also praying for the destruction of the enemy...for the destruction of human life.
