When the Prince of Peace finishes His work, then the lion will lay down with the lamb and “the lion will eat straw like an ox. In all of His holy mountain there will be nothing to hurt and destroy.” (Isa 65:24).  When the lions are converted life will then function in unbroken wholeness.  Humans will love their neighbor as they love themselves.  A little bit of “peace in the valley someday” can start now.  “Oh Lord, take the lion out of me.  In the name of the Lamb I pray.”
