Weekly Prayer 

God always with us, Holy Spirit,

You are the LORD who gives strength to your people; the LORD who blesses your people with peace. [Psalm 29: 11] You had much to say to your disciples before you were handed over to the religious leaders. You told them that you were giving them your peace, as you do us. Because we have your peace, we do not need to be troubled or afraid. [John 14: 27] What a blessed gift it is to know that you are always with us and that we can rely on your peace in our hearts and minds! We can be assured that soon you, the God of peace, will crush Satan under our feet. [Romans 16: 20] You will destroy the sin and evil that are now a part of this world.

 

Romans 14: 19 says: “Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and mutual edification.” You want me to share your peace with others. You tell us to: “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the LORD.” [Hebrews 12: 14] LORD, examine me. Reveal to me any way in which I am failing to live in ways that build others up; reveal to me any way in which I am failing to share your peace with others or live a holy life. I cannot change these things on my own, but through your Spirit’s work in me, I can be changed-to grow more like you. Thank you, LORD Jesus.

 

“LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us. LORD our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honor.” [Isaiah 26: 12-13] We praise you-the child born for us, the son given to us…the One called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. [Isaiah 9: 6] It is in the name of your dear Son, Jesus, that we pray. AMEN.
