Please join us in the peace prayer for January, 2021.
Dear Heavenly Father,
As the dawn breaks on a new year
Let us give thanks for all we hold dear:
Our health, our family and our friends.
You make all things new
You bring hope alive in our hearts
And cause our sprits to be born again.
Thank you for this new year
For all the potential it holds.
Bring peace and healing to our world.
In Jesus’ name ,
Amen

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27

World and Regional Concerns
God of peace, of justice, of love, You are good beyond all that is good. 
Invite all of humanity to experience your kingdom more fully - even now, even here.
To find it among your imperfect people and in unlikely places and times. In suffering as fully as in joy, for this is how you choose to come and be and live; WITH US in our actual living of messy lives. 
Lord, You are the strength of the weary.

Heal the dissensions which divide us from one another and from ourselves. We pray for peace in communities near and far, peace in our hearts, peace among the wondrous diversity of people you have made, peace between countries, between religions, between ideologies, and regions. We pray for the presence of your surpassing peace in each mind, and it's comfort and compassion felt in each life. Bring vitality and healing to those whose health and safety have been threatened, especially by the Corona virus, earthquakes, drought, storms, contaminated water supplies, homelessness, hopelessness, and trauma. 

Fill us each with active and holy compassion for ALL your people, and make us mindful of those WE harm with our choices, willful blindness, and apathy. May your grace, love, and hope be made known, and lived-out in us more fully, so that EACH may taste the sweet goodness you give so freely to all!
