Peace Instead of Chaos

Heavenly Father I praise You for all You have blessed my family with. I praise You for making sure we have food to eat, clothes to wear, and a house to sleep in. I praise You for the freedom to go to church and be recharged and given wisdom while I worship in unity with others.  

Holy Spirit Your word says, “Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. Those who love Your law have great peace, and nothing shall cause them to stumble. You will keep me in perfect peace, as long as my mind is staying on You because I trust in You. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. I will let the peace of God, to which I am called with the body, rule in our hearts. And I will be thankful. I will flee youthful desires and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. I will love life, seek good days, and learn to keep my tongue from evil, and my lips from speaking deceit. I will turn away from evil and do good; I will seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. The Lord will bless me, and keep me, I will seek the Lord to make His face shine upon me, and be gracious to me. The Lord will lift His countenance upon me and give me peace.” [Psalm 34:14, 119:165; Isaiah 26:3; 1 Corinthians 14:33; Colossians 3:15; 2 Timothy 2:22; 1 Peter 3:10-12; Numbers 6:26] 

Holy Spirit I seek to have peace in my life, in my mind, and my soul. I seek to grow in righteousness so that I can take into captivity every thought, and every wrong desire and remove them from my life so that I can have a peace that will surpass the understanding of all the people around me who live in chaos.  

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Galatians 1:3-5)
