Sometimes, just start your prayer and let the Lord unfold what you are to pray as you are praying.
Father, you are a God that desires peace for your children. You sent your son, Jesus, to remove the enmity, the gap, that existed between us. That we could have the peace of God, the peace from God and peace with God.
Father, I think that I am right way too often. Therefore I think that peace means other people agreeing with me. And when they don’t, then the divide begins. I see it as part of my roll that peace abides in my house. I know that the tone is set by my wife many times….but the responsibility read the thermostat is mine.
Father, help my children to seek peace with their friends. Help us to see that our enemy is never the other person, but it is the devil who is always at work. He alone is the one that we push back his kingdom to advance the kingdom of God. Help me to see everyone, from the same eyes in which you see them. May I turn the frustration into prayer.
May I learn to bless others instead of judging them. Lord, bring to remembrance this specific verse in my life, when I am violating its principle. Let me walk in more humility.
In Jesus name, Amen
