We come before You today seeking Your peace and guidance. We know that You are the Prince of Peace and that You are able to bring calm to even the most tumultuous of situations.
We ask that You would bring peace to the nations of the world and to the hearts of all people. May Your love and grace fill us and help us to extend that love and grace to those around us. May we be instruments of Your peace, spreading Your love and light wherever we go.
We pray for an end to violence and conflict, and for a spirit of unity and understanding to prevail. Help us to be peacemakers in our own lives and in the world.
We trust in You and know that You are sovereign over all things. May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
We pray all of this through the power of Your holy name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
