Thank You for Peace – Janet Eriksson

Dear God,

I am grateful for Your gift of peace.

It’s a gift I can freely receive from You.

Your peace changes the atmosphere and brings the kingdom of heaven alive all around me.

The peace You give is not as the world gives. Your peace can’t be shaken by circumstances.

When storms rage all around me, all I need to do is step into Your peace.

Your peace comforts me, strengthens me, heals me. Your peace transforms my life, my family, my community.

When I’m in the midst of trials, Your peace keeps me whole. Peace reminds me to focus on You.

I love that Your peace is a gift I can share. By Your Holy Spirit, I can carry Your peace into any place and affect my surroundings, rather than being affected by the chaos of the world.

Peace reminds me of who You are. I behold You, and Your peace surrounds me. I see the way You want me to see. I remember who I am to You, and who You are to me.

Most of all, God, I love that Peace is a Person. Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, the Prince of Peace, with us always, forever.

Thank You, God, for Peace.

In Jesus’ name,
