Prayer for Peace
Almighty Father, I pray today for peace on this earth. Lord, fill my heart and mind with your peace which exceeds all understanding. For this world can be anything but peaceful, but you can bring peace to my heart. Spread your peace through this land, leading people to know your love. For when we treat one another with love as you have taught, peace will follow. May more of this world come to know your love and live in your peace. Amen.
Scripture for the Week
John 14:27 (NLT)
27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
Philippians 4:7 (NLT)
7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Almighty God, kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquility your dominion may increase until the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
