In this second week of Advent, we remember that Jesus brought us peace. First, he gives us inner peace. Because of his sacrifice on the cross, we have a promise of salvation and the Holy Spirit to lead us. Second, we have peace with others, as we put aside our differences, because we belong to the same family.
All in all, we continue to have peace of mind knowing that God will heal this broken world and will come again. Please join us in this prayer for peace:
Open our hearts so that we may receive your peace. Peace that allows us to look at others through heaven’s eyes and helps guide us toward your vision of a world free of the violence of hunger and poverty.
Give us the strength and clarity of mind to find our purpose and walk the path you've laid not only for us, but also for our communities, and our country.
Even when our hearts are heavy, unsure when the bills will be paid, when racism will stop, when the next meal will come, we know you bring the good news again.
Please guard our hearts and minds with your peace and powerful love. Thank you for your mighty, sovereign hand. Help us to fully trust in you and rest in the peace that you offer.
In the precious name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
"Loving God, open our hearts so that we may receive your peace"
