Planting The Seeds Of Peace

Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:18

Lord, as we work through the complex issues of our time, let us sow in peace.  Help us avoid the weeds and thorns of derision, taunts, denial, sales pitches, propaganda, posturing, and wishful thinking that surround us.

Help us to listen.

Encourage us to explore and seek new information, ideas, and perspectives.

Help us to learn from each other – asking questions, inviting new input, sharing experiences.

Help us to face the reality we have before us, and accept the promise that we can change, so that we might build a better country and world: one where we act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with you our God. (Micah 6:8)

In Jesus’ name we pray,

Amen.
