Prayers for Everyday

PEACE

Leave a comment

O Lord, this morning I am walking
around the pond
of our retirement community..
As I sit on a bench to write,
I see two big turtles on a log.
Suddenly they jump into the water
as three people come by,
one being pushed in a wheelchair.
Then a large goldfish is
swimming below the leaves
which have fallen in the pond.
What amazing creatures
you have created, Lord.
Then all is still.
Oh that the world
could know this peace, Lord.
Then all would be well.

Genesis 1:20a:
And God said, “Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures.”

John 14:27:
{ Jesus said,} “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”

Hymn: Let There Be Peace on Earth
