A Prayer for Peace

A Prayer for Peace

Dear Father,
Today I realized
How much strife is in this world,
How many hurting hearts need love,
And the number of broken people
Who are barely surviving.
In fact, we’re all broken, Lord.
That’s why we desperately need You-
To learn to love and to live.
We crave peace, we explore every option,
Uncomprehending that we’re seeking You.
Peace cannot be found in a treasure box;
It cannot be bought or sold.
Peace is not confined by position
Nor is it contained within possibilities.
You are the source of True Peace.
May I look to You only for peace
And may I feel the peace only You can give,
Transcending beyond the human comprehension-
Yet experienced through simple trust in Your Word.


And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:7

  2. My husband is an alcoholic. He is verbally abusive to me when he drinks. He scares the kids because he yells an is mean to me. I want to take the kids an leave but I can’t afford it on my own. My children an I desperately need peace. We need God to make a way where there seems to be none.

    1. Tamara- God loves you so very much. He will make a way- He is the God of the impossible. Jesus, please be with Tamara and her children right now. Please provide a way of escape for them and protect them as only You can. Tamara- please seek outside help as soon as possible. Call a reliable friend or family member and talk to them. Inform someone in authority of your situation so that they can help you. My prayers are with you and yours.
