God alone is our peace that passes all understanding. In the midst of constant negativity and violence God is our peace. In the midst of dire lack and constant pressure. God alone is our peace. In the midst of chaos in our public arena, God is our peace. We don’t ignore the reality of our situations. We put our focus and trust in God.
We declare God’s peace in our hearts, minds and hearts. We declare God’s peace in our home and family and relationships. We rest in his peace.
We enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. We worship God and bless his holy name. We enter into his presence and listen to his still small voice calm the storms. We ask God for wisdom. We seek God’s face. We become quiet before the God of the whole universe. We turn off all screens and seek only Him. How awesome to spend time with God and time in his word.
A prayer we could pray: God I need help. Everything seems to be pressing in on me. Come to me. I give you my life and my heart. Forgive me of anything I did to contribute to my situation. I forgive and release (name those who come to mind), I forgive myself, I forgive you God. Let your peace come and guard my heart and mind. Show me the way to your heart. I want to be yours. I want you to take control of my life. As you can see I have certainly made many mistakes. Come Lord, be Lord of my life. Comfort me. Guide me. Speak to me.
