Peace, Perfect Peace!
We praise you today for the courage of our nation's leader to end a military conflict so that our sons and daughters, husbands and wives are able to come home; a nation to rebuild and a nation to recover - ours, there's and everyone else's. Thank God for those who sacrificed everything and those who paid the ultimate price on fields of conflict.
We know that the war may be over, but there is still a fight on our hands. The fight for the souls of men and women. The fight for the future of our children and their children's children. The fight for the hearts and minds of our people who are being led astray by misinformation that fan the fires of fear.
Blessed are the peacemakers. Bless those who are able to bring calm in the midst of a chaotic world. Thou, O Lord be a shield around them! Help us today to be agents of peace, vendors of mercy and articulators of freedom in the face of any oppression.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
