REMEMBER the promise of Peace
“You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.”
– Isaiah 26:3
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
– John 16:33
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
– Romans 5:1
RECOGNIZE the presence of God in Prayer
Prince of Peace, our greatest need is you. Thank you for loving us and granting us peace with you through Jesus. Our world is busy, chaotic, and confusing, but in Christ we have true and lasting peace.
Father, would you quiet our anxious hearts and help us to live into the perfect peace of Jesus, trusting you and finding rest in you, even in the midst of tribulation. We pour out our anxieties and fears at your feet and pray for peace that surpasses all understanding.
Father, we pray for peace for ourselves, peace in our families, peace at work, and peace in this world. Help us to be peacemakers, drawing others to your son, so that they too can know the presence and peace of Christ.
REPEAT the rhythms of God’s presence
Become peacemakers. In a world that is fraught with strife and contention, let us be a people of peace. Although we were rebels and sinners, God has given us peace with him and peace in our hearts through Jesus.
With your family, online, with friends and with enemies, step away from anger and contention. Ask God to help you become a peacemaker, one who lives in truth, but never in a way that harms others or disparages the name of Christ.
