Pause + Pray

In Search of Peace

The Gospel of Luke tells us that as Jesus entered Jerusalem for his ministry there, he wept over the city and said, “If this day you only knew what makes for peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes” (Lk 19:42).


Dear Jesus,
Peace is hard to find—
in the world, the workplace,
and sometimes, even in our churches and families.
Please open my eyes and my heart to find it.
I know it can only be found in you,
but with your help,
it can be shared through me.


Look up the song “Let There Be Peace on Earth,” and reflect on the lyrics. Sing them if you know the melody.
