Lord, watching the news is scary. So much war, so much fear, so much trouble. And our lives and homes can reflect that, on a smaller scale. The world needs to know the peace You offer. Every one of us needs to know the peace You offer.
I want to help, but too often, I’m part of the problem. In my flawed and fallen human way, instead of bringing peace to my little part of the world, it’s far too easy for me to bring fear and anger and restlessness.
Please, help me to rest in You. Help me to open my heart and mind to You. Help me to open myself to Your comforting Spirit so completely that Your peace fills my heart and mind and washes away all that is not peace and love and trust in You. Help me to share Your peace with those around me. Thank You!
