The Fourth Week of Lent – Friday

JOHN 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Peace is illusive, ineffable and so much more than the absence of violence. Jesus gifts us with his peace. Where do you find and feel Jesus’ peace that passes understanding? How can you cultivate a deep sense of Jesus’ peace in ways that impact the people and places around you? Read the headlines and pray for peace for those without any this day.

Prince of Peace, in a world too often overflowing with violence, cruelty and war, we long for your inexplicable peace, not only for ourselves, but for all of creation. Blessed
are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. May your offspring increase exponentially until all the earth is enveloped by your peace. Amen.
