It’s Monday, and my prayer for today:
Almighty God, as we begin a new year and look ahead to its possibilities, we also bring forth reminders of the past, often moments of pain and regret. We struggle to understand what has happened or is happening. We search for clarity and seek peace. Please, dear God, grant us your peace. Grant us assurance and knowledge of your love and grace. And may your peace not only rest on us as individuals, but on this nation and those of the entire world. We fear the brink of war, dread the presence of anger and hatred, and need, desperately, your shining light of peace. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, we pray. Amen.
