Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. –Colossians 3:13 (NIV)
REFLECT | We are mindful of the need for peace throughout the world, but today we pray specifically for our community.
PRAY | Dear Heavenly Father, we know you to be the Prince of Peace! We ask that you bless us with hearts of forgiveness when we deal with our brothers and sisters in our community! May we yearn to have a heart like yours to live peaceably with one another! We thank you for giving us the ability to forgive and ask that we are mindful of the many times we have needed you to forgive us as we seek to be forgiven and to forgive! May peace comfort us and may we bear one another’s burdens as true children of the living God! We are grateful to be peacemakers in times of trouble! This is your servant’s Prayer in the precious name of Jesus, we pray for peace in our community! Amen!
