Prayer on Peace

Sovereign Lord,

We humbly come before You seeking Your peace. We implore that You would fill our hearts and minds with Your perfect peace, and that Your peace would reign in our lives. We implore that You would still any fears or anxieties we may have, and that You would grant us the strength to endure any trials that come our way.

We pray that You would bring peace to our homes, our communities, and our world. We implore that You would work in the hearts of leaders and nations, bringing them to a place of understanding and reconciliation.

We acknowledge that You are the Prince of Peace, and that You have promised to never leave us or forsake us. We trust in Your goodness and Your faithfulness, and we implore that You would make Your presence known in a very real and tangible way in our lives.

We offer up these prayers in the precious name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
