Pray for peace
John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubles and do not be afraid.
God has taught me a valuable lesson these past couple of months. In my daily prayers, I usually have a long list of things I ask Him for; such as wisdom, guidance, strength, understanding and favour. But recently, I’ve had peace on my heart.
I’ve been feeling Him tell me to pray for peace. And now I realise, surely that’s the best thing to pray for?
No matter what season you’re in, God’s peace in your heart will always help. If you’re in a season of waiting or stress, you need God’s peace to still your restless mind. Or if you’re mourning, you need God’s peace to still the waves of sadness and help you through. Or even if you’re in a place in your life where you just don’t know what you should do; God’s peace will help bring clarity.
God’s peace is unlike any other gift the world can give you. You can’t bring your own peace quite like His. He is the prince of peace.
