A Prayer for Peace

Heavenly Father,

We come to You today seeking Your peace and guidance. We know that You are the source of all peace and that without You, we cannot find true peace in this world.

Please help us to trust in Your plan for our lives and to find rest in Your presence. May Your peace that surpasses all understanding guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

We pray for peace in our families, our communities, and our world. We pray for an end to violence and conflict, and for the healing of the wounds that have been inflicted on Your people.

We pray for Your protection over those who are suffering and for Your wisdom for those who are seeking to bring about change and reconciliation.

We pray that Your love would be the driving force in all that we do and that Your peace would reign in our hearts and in the world.

Through the power of Your holy and mighty name, Jesus, we pray for peace. Amen.
