It’s probably fair to say that there isn’t nearly enough peace in our world or in our hearts. Violence and hatred run rampant outside while despair and anger cloud our interior lives. Building peace is the only answer, and our faith in God gives us the fuel to keep trying.
God, there is so much chaos in our world today, so much strife.
I offer up this prayer to you to help me find ways to repair what’s broken—
within myself and in the world around me.
Grant me the resilience to build peace whenever and wherever I can.
Try a twofold approach to peace-building: Take a few minutes today to quiet your mind and nurture inner calm. Afterward, think about how to reflect that peace in the world around you.
