Pray for Peace

6.12.11

Our world is in need of peace …globally … nationally … and even in our community. Spiritual forces of evil are at work that are unrecognized by the unbelieving populace, but Christians recognize easily.

Unfortunately in our humanity we often are drawn into conflict. Often it is in the name of ‘standing up for our rights’ or telling other people that they are wrong and God is against them. I don’t think we can shout down the spirit of division that exists around us.

God is a God of Peace and I think Christians everywhere need to include in their prayers the concept of peace. Jesus came to tear down walls of division between people so that they could belong to the Eternal Family by following Him.

For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us. ~Ephesians 2:14 

Pray for Peace

Pray for peace between Republicans and Democrats and Others.

Pray for Peace in the US, Iran, Israel, and around the world.

Pray for God to defeat all hostility between humans.

Pray that Christians would never let human loyalties steal peace from them.

Pray that Christians would never let human ideas divide us.

Pray that Christians would never let human icons divide brothers.

Pray that God would bring peace between all humans.

Pray that God would tear down the walls of hatred and division.

I pray that Christians involved in turmoil and conflict would turn to Jesus to find peace. May Christians never participate in fomenting unrest and evil opinions of others.

If you don’t know Jesus, find Him and find Peace within, peace with others, peace with God.

Finally, brothers and sisters, farewell. Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. ~2 Corinthians 13:11
