Prayer for January 14, 2020: Please pray with me. God of peace, make your presence known to us. We have a faulty view of peace. The world thinks that peace is a destination. But the problem is that we never arrive. There’s always an excuse to avoid peace. There’s always an enemy to fight or kill. There’s always someone who does us wrong. There’s always someone to blame. When there is always someone else who is in the way, we will never be at peace, because we refuse to see the image of God in the other. We remain blind. Open our eyes to a new ways of seeing the world. Open our Hearts to new ways of living. Open us to the way of peace so that we may be instruments of peace. Open us to be peacemakers. This is not an easy calling. But it is worth it. Amen.
