Pray for Peace
Lord, today is a new day and a chance for a new start. It’s a new day to be glad and give thanks and be all we can be. Lord, we pray for guidance and protection because we don’t know what is going to cross our paths, but we know you are there to protect us. And, so dear Lord, we pray for all the people who are affected by crime.
We pray for peace with Ukraine and Russia. Lord, you said there will be wars, and rumors of wars and nations will rise against nations. Lord, please send your spirit to the hearts of these nations. We need your intervention to avoid war and keep our soldiers safe at home.
Lord, please bring peace to end violence and hatred in the world. In the midst of divided nations, Lord, we desperately need your peace. We pray for our leaders and future leaders to have wisdom, knowledge, and discernment. Amen
