Peace

NOTHING WILL OFFEND US

Dear Jesus,

Even in those tough and confusing times you have promised us that you are with us right to the end.

I am so grateful for your peace that you willingly gave us and freely too. But you said that if we desire to have peace we must put our trust in you and when we do nothing will offend us.

Forgive me for not trusting in you and thinking and going my own way.

Your way is perfect. Your way is good.

In your Name,

Amen


 

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A SMILE

Dear Jesus,

What is peace-planning? How can we plan for peace and not trouble in life?

Give us wisdom in this Lord.

Thank you for what you have done so far in teaching us what, how and why we should treat others with kindness.

It says in your word that as we treat others with kindness we help ourselves.

It is so good to know that all are being benefited from something as simple as a smile.

Lord we want to do more.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen


 

WHATEVER IS WORTHY OF PRAISE

Dear Jesus,

I don’t really know what to say to you right about now.

I’m lost for the right words.

Please read my heart. Its saying a lot.

So many concerns, worries and anxieties.

I’m learning that its ok to have these emotions.

You said that you remember that we are just human, dust of the earth, fragile.

But you have also told us to not be afraid, to trust in you and not to worry about tomorrow.

To focus on lovely things, good reports and whatever is worthy of praise and attention.

I believe that when we do these things we will experience your peace.

In your Name,

Amen

HOME OF THE RIGHTEOUS

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for a home to come to in peace.

It hasn’t always been like this and I am greatful that you have helped me to appreciate what I have.

Help us all to appreciate what you bless us with.

You said that your curse blights the home of the wicked but you bless the home of the righteous.

I pray that you have blessed my home and others will feel the love when they step through those doors.

In your Name,

Amen

De-Clutter

Dear Jesus, 

I read that having less stuff is nessecary to our growth.

Clearing out all the clutter, all the things that are just un-important and don’t really have that much value.

Lord, Im learning that less stuff doesn’t just mean less material things but all things, anything that is not bringing value and meaning into our lives.

Thank you for helping me to de-clutter and please continue to help us in that process.

In your Name,

Amen

A BEAUTIFUL THING

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for answering our prayers.

Thank you for hearing, listening and understanding. Thank you for your support.

You have helped and are still helping me and (name) reconcile. Through this I have had to practise patience and humility.

But most of all I have experienced peace and that is a beautiful thing.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

DAY OF REST

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for this day of rest.

Today I can forget about the week and all the issues and problems it brings and enjoy everything about you.

But not just today Lord.

You gave us a specific instruction not to worry about anything but instead pray about anything and everything and give thanks to you.

In doing this I will experience your peace.

In your Name,

Amen

FOCUS

Dear Jesus,

It is very hard in this day and age to keep in contact with people.

So many things to do and commitments. But you haven’t advised us to focus on doing more and having more.

You said to focus on you, to not chase after things. 

Lord I am learning that chasing after things doesn’t bring any satisfaction, no inspiration, no power.

But chasing after things that do like friendship, family, love, wisdom and other things that can not be held and put into a box is what matters in the end.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

OUR SITUATIONS

Dear Jesus,

Many of us are in desperate need for answered prayer, for breakthroughs for something to change and improve.

Its hard not to let our situations get us down and cause us to worry and fret.

Because of this im asking you Lord to take care of us. Provide for us and comfort us. Continue to teach us your ways and encourage us to listen and learn. 
As we do that Lord you said that your peace will take us over and nothing will affect us.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen
