Father, thank You for Jesus, our mighty Lord and Prince of Peace. Thank You for sending Him to give us Your peace. It’s nothing like the world gives. It is peace born in the freedom we have in You, a gift to all Your children—to guard our hearts and minds. We pray many will discover this gift and place their trust in You. Despite our circumstances, despite our challenges, help us realize that You have overcome the world and Your peace is beyond all we can understand or desire. In the name of Jesus we pray, amen.
