Welcome to day five of this prayer challenge. Today’s post is coming in very late because there were a lot to do today and we wouldn’t have today end without this.
Today we will be praying for Peace. Now when we talk about peace, I’m sure you have experienced peace at some point in your life either peace regarding a situation or regarding a decision or even regarding marrying someone. Peace seems to be the dominant proof of why many people enter into a relationship or get married altogether.
But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [INNER] PEACE, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.
The hebrew word for Peace is Shalom and this means to be complete or whole.
Peace in itself stems from a complete trust in God.
It is not simply the absence of war but the presence of calmness from deep within because you know there is a plan. As believers and women filled with the Holy Spirirt, Peace is a fruit of the Spirit. Now this Peace is broad because it involves the part of living in peace with God, with yourself and with others. And guess what, you grow in peace. As you grow as a believer through the help of the Holy Spirit, you find out, you are more peaceful, you pursue after what makes for peace and everyone who comes in contact with you can see you are a peaceful person.
Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.] – John 14:27
Dear God, thank you for giving me your peace. I know that the peace you give is like no other and I pray that I would hold on to it and not be overcome by the peace the world offers no matter how enticing it is.
Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. – Romans 12:18
Dear Lord, I know sometimes I would be faced with situations that present themselves in ways that may justify my actions if I choose to look the other way. But dear Lord, I ask that everyday, I receive the strength to ensure that from my own end, I follow after living peacefully with everyone.
How joyful you are when you make peace! For then you will be recognized as a true child of God. – Matthew 5:9
Lord let my life of peace be the “show and tell” that brings other to come to know you and seek you and follow you.
For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. – Colosians 1:19-20
Prince of Peace, thank you for showing us what peace is and how to extend your peace to others through your life.
Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. – Psalm 34:14
Dear lord, as I live everyday let me a seeker of your peace and give me all it takes to maintain it even when it is challenging to do so.
So let’s try as hard as we can to do what will bring peace. Let’s do whatever will help each other grow stronger in faith. – Romans 14:19
Lord, I ask for the strength to be a helper to those around me so I can continually grow in peace in Jesus Name.
I say this because I know what [the plans] I am planning for you,” says the Lord. “I have good plans for you [plans for your peace/security], not plans to hurt you [for your harm]. I will give you hope and a good future. – Jeremiah 29:11
Lord, I trust the plans you have in mind for me. I trust that they will bring me peace, fill me with hope and lead to a prosperous future.
Are you peaceful? Can those around you, especially your own family attest to the peace that you bring to every situation that may seem chaotic? Do you need to grow or begin to manifest this fruit of the Spirit? Just tell it all to God.
Thank you for today, Let us pray together again tomorrow.
Beautiful Blessings Beloved.
