In a world of violence, hatred, and division, Jesus implores us to work for peace. As we hope against all odds—believing that Divine love will one day have the victory—let us pray to be peacemakers.
God of love, bring your peace to this earth,
to every country that is war-ravaged,
to every family torn apart,
and to every community plagued by injustice.
Make me a peacemaker in my own spheres.
Show me how not to give way to despair,
but to repair the breach that is mine to restore
as I follow the Prince of Peace.
What is one relationship in which God is calling you to make peace? Take a small step to do so today.
