The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

   

A Prayer for Peace

Father in heaven, creator of all Mankind, we praise Your Holy and matchless name. You are our refuge and strength in times of trouble. You are our shield and buckler. So in the wonderful name of Jesus, we call on You today asking for peace in our world. We pray that Your mighty power would be manifested to stop, expose and utterly defeat the forces of evil that are rampant in countries, cities, towns, villages and homes. We pray too that those who are planning, plotting and committing acts of evil and violence would be stopped. Please protect and deliver men, women and children who are trapped in dire conditions of wars, gang violence and abusive relationships. We pray too that all leaders of nations would see the good of choosing peace and diplomacy over the violence of war to resolve conflicts. Heal broken relationships torn apart by strife and dissension among family and friends, with restoration of love and peace. Righteous Father, our faith is in Your power. We believe and thank you for granting our petitions. In the precious name of Jesus: Amen.

The Peace that Jesus Gives

In these turbulent times we all face different levels of fear about the future, while grappling with present realities of widespread death, sickness, grief, social unrest, political strife, financial loss and many other personal problems Yet, Jesus promises that regardless of our present trials and troubles we can still find personal peace in Him. He says that we do not have to be bound by fear, sunken into despair and be in torment with inner turmoil -"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John 16:33. This means that  we have access to God's power to take us through the storms of life.  

Relationships, whether they are personal, social or political,  can evaporate with division, dissension and anger. Yet Jesus tells us that in Him we can find personal peace. To those who do not know Jesus as a personal savior this will seem impossible. But millions of His followers have experienced the peace within that only Jesus can give when life comes at us with anxiety, heartache and disappointments. This is because the peace Jesus gives does not originate from our intellect, philosophies, religion or meditation. The peace Jesus offers us is spiritual and supernatural, because it is a gift from God - Jesus' apostle Paul says "the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus -Philippians 4:7. 
Jesus' death, burial and resurrection secured that this peace is for
everyone, regardless of religion, race, gender or social status. All this is needed is to come to  God in repentance for sin, accept His forgiveness, and by faith receive Jesus as savior. This the personal peace Jesus gives and it  is not transient, but eternal - John 14:27. Yet we must pray to strengthens our faith to face lifeís trials and not lose the peace within regardless of what we are facing. We can live in faith and not fear because Godís power is limitless and absolute to work for on our behalf. It is His divine will to defeat every evil force of Satan that comes against us. Furthermore, Godís will is always and only for our good Ė Romans 8:28. So we do not have to live in terror with all that is happening in the world around us. As we surrender our heart, minds and spirits to His guidance, protection and deliverance God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us. It is His peace in our spirits that strengthens us to wait as we watch Him work out  the problems and circumstances in our lives for only what is best for us Ė Matthew 6:33.
