A highlight from A Prayer for Peace During the Holidays

Your Daily Prayer


A prayer for peace during the holidays, written and read by Lynette kittle. Today, in the city of David, a savior has been born to you. He is Christ the lord, and this will be assigned to you, you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger, and suddenly they appeared with the angel a great multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, glory to God in the highest heavens, and on earth, peace to those on whom his favor rests. Luke two 11 through 14. He says a high commodity these days, desired by the masses, found by few. Often individuals believe if they can gather wealth, family, and a prominent position, peace will come. Yet most fine, that it is not something that comes through other people, possessions, or social status. Peace is not something we can create on our own or find in worldly endeavors. So how do we find true peace? And why does it seem so unattainable on our own? And through our own efforts, because of God's great compassion and tender hearted, loving kindness towards us, he sent a surprise of gift, and the true source for everlasting peace. Knowing we could never gain it on our own. While the world cries out for peace, and gathers leaders of the nations to try to negotiate for it, true peace only comes through one person, Jesus. As the prince of peace, he is the only person to ever walk on worldly soil, who has the power to bring peace on earth. As I say a 9 60 describes him before his birth four to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called wonderful, counselor, mighty God, everlasting father, prince of peace. Because he is the only source of true peace in the world, he promises us. Peace, I leave with you. My peace, I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid. John 1427. The peace Jesus brought to earth, calms our heart and chases every fear away. Our hearts no longer have to be troubled by the evil taking place in the world. When the peace of God is present in our lives, fear can not consume us, or stand up against it, but must back down. It must leave us alone when we trust and take refuge in him. Psalm 91 four describes the security. We experience when we find our peace in God. He will cover you with his feathers. And under his wings, you will find refuge. His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. As well, proverbs three 24 through 26, explains some of the blessings and benefits. We receive through remaining in his peace. When you lie down, you will not be afraid. When you rest, your sleep will be sweet. Do not fear sudden danger, or the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from the snare. Let's pray, dear father, although the world is in chaos with confusion, unrest and fear, unraveling more and more, with each coming day. You O lord are steadfast and faithful. The one I can always turn to, find true peace, so today I'm turning towards you, asking for your peace to fill my heart and mind. Help me to look towards you rather than today's headlines. When fear tries to arise within me, let your peace chase every fearful thought away from my heart. Help me to not be anxious about anything, but in every situation to turn to you with prayer, petition, and Thanksgiving with my request. So that your peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard my heart and mind in
