Prayer for More Peace
. . .that we may live peaceful
and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Lord, I don’t want peace to be a
once-in-a-while thing—I want to know peace as a way of life. Make me a conduit
that brings harmony and serenity to all my relationships and interactions. Even
when life is busy, I want to be a person who takes time to listen to others.
Still my inner heart so I can give a smile or a kind word to another person
and, through my actions, offer peace to them as well. In Jesus' name. Amen.
