A Prayer For Peace

Dear Father,

Today I realized
How much strife is in this world,
How many hurting hearts need love,
And the number of broken people
Who are barely surviving.
In fact, we’re all broken, Lord.
That’s why we desperately need You-
To learn to love and to live.
We crave peace, we explore every option,
Uncomprehending that we’re seeking You.
Peace cannot be found in a treasure box;
It cannot be bought or sold.
Peace is not confined by position
Nor is it contained within possibilities.
You are the source of True Peace.
May I look to You only for peace
And may I feel the peace only You can give,
Transcending beyond the human comprehension-
Yet experienced through simple trust in Your Word.

Amen.
