When life feels heavy, it’s natural that we yearn for that sense of control. Our souls seek that calm amid the story–especially with all the upsetting stories unfolding all over the world. We, as humans, need to make sense of all the things happening, even when it’s bigger than ourselves.
During times like this, we must remember that the power of prayer can be strong, whether we’re facing inner turmoil, conflict at home, or anxiety about the state of the world around us. (Read: A Prayer for Peace Around the World)
So, let this prayer bring us comfort in times when nothing else will, and center our spirits by reminding us that paving a path towards a peaceful world starts within ourselves.
Prayer for Peace
Dear Father in heaven, we thank you for holding open the way into our hearts and for bringing us the peace of Jesus Christ. Help us to keep this way open. Grant us peace in this tempest-torn world. Grant us peace when many struggles and uncertainties try to occupy our hearts. We have no strength in ourselves, only in him who is standing at our side and who will never forsake us, who lives and gives strength. His light will always break in anew among us. His light will shine on many people and lead them to the promised day, the day that will bring all our hopes to fulfillment. Amen.
