Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in all ways. The Lord be with all of you."
On this Memorial Day, this day of remembering the people who sacrificed their lives so that I might live in peace, I share this verse of peace with you.
Take time today to thank the Lord for the blessing of freedoms we have in this country. Take time today to pray for our country and its leaders as well as the leaders of countries around the world. We do not live in a world of peace but we can live with hearts of peace. I echo the beautiful words of Paul. May the Lord of peace give you peace; the Lord be with you all.
Thank you for the blessings I so often take for granted. There are so many people suffering in so many ways but even in those I ask for your peace to be given and instilled in their hearts and souls. Let all who suffer find peace and rest in you. Let those of us who do not suffer so be agents of your peace to others. I pray this in your holy name and to the glory of your kingdom, now and forever. Amen.
