A Prayer for Peace–The Lord Jesus Christ said, “Peace I
leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world
giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither
let it be afraid” (John 14:27). He knew that a time would come
when peace will be very scarce on earth. We are already in
that time. Paul said,
“Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all
means. The Lord be with you all” (2 Thessalonians 3:16).
Peace is one of the fruits of the spirit in the life of a believer.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith” (Galatians 5:22).
It is also a characteristic of the kingdom of God.
“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but
righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost”
A peacemaker is blessed.
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the
children of God” (Matthew 5:9).
We are enjoined to pray for the peace of our places of
domicile, even when it is a hostile place.
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love
thee” (Psalm 122:6).
“And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to
be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in
the peace thereof shall ye have peace” (Jeremiah 29:7).
We are also enjoined to “Follow peace with all men…”
However, the world as a system is an enemy of the Prince of
Peace. That is why it would need prayer for peace.
