Peace

Holy God,
Your peace has been given through faith in Jesus Christ,
yet,
this world is on a relentless pursuit of the wrong peace.
Oh God,
if only the world would pursue
YOU;
then and only then,
could they find true peace.
But sin muddies the water and thus we don’t see clearly
that which is our peace.
Many think that ending conflict will bring peace
or ridding ourselves of enemies
or putting down those who would oppose us.
But none of that brings lasting peace.
It only prepares a breeding ground for more unrest.
But may the peace that surpasses all understanding
come upon us,
oh God.
May we see in You our hope.
May we see in You our life.
May we see in You our salvation.
May our peace-searching end with You.
In Jesus name, Amen.
