James 3:13-18

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space with the desire to be peace-makers in this world. We are on the brink of war on our physical and spiritual doorsteps. We seek peace, but at what cost? Only you can make wars cease, break the bows, and scatter the spears.

Gracious loving Yahweh, thank you for this time. You speak loving kindness to us. Thank you for giving us your pure, peaceful, and gentle wisdom. We let go of bitterness and selfish ambition and choose peace.

I seek your perfect peace today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Peace by our own will is not perfect, but is based upon our human desires. But your ways, O LORD, are perfect. Give us your wisdom, and guide us in your ways, so we will skirt the imperfections of this world and celebrate together in your perfect peace.

With joy, we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
