More than anything else I think, today, we need peace.
Many of us are beyond concerned. Everyone had an opinion online. The TV is telling us this or that. We wonder where things are headed?
More than anything else, today, we need: peace and prayer.
Tackling prayer is easy, we ask: Father, you will be done.
Peace can feel more elusive. This my reasoning for including 7 verses of peace for you today. I advise that you read them aloud and that you pray them over yourself.
