We all need peace in our lives. Some of us need more peace than others, especially at certain times. An unsettling week with many pieces of news that were not what I hoped to hear, and some other things that just seemed to push my buttons (see Day #583), the “impatient with others” moments are happening more often than I like (thank you, dear husband, for enduring!). So when I saw this, I knew it is what I need:
Silently speak this centering prayer throughout the day:
Peace be with you, _________ (your name).
This reminder really helps. It is similar to the prayer I have suggested to others:Peace be with you, _________ (the name of someone you know who needs peace).
Breath in, calling on the name of Jesus
Breath out, releasing the troubling emotion – be it anger, frustration, etc.What I appreciate about this one, however, it’s not just for me. It’s also for others in my life who greatly need God’s peace right now!! Know I am remembering you in prayer!!
