Peace – Mother Teresa says that works of love are works of peace. Peace is the result of spreading God’s love to the people around us. The less we think of ourselves, the more peaceful we are. Smile five times a day. Do it for peace. Spread love and joy. Seek God for His own sake. Jesus not only promises peace to us, He is our peace.
He will be our peace. (Micah 5:5)
PRAYER SPACE – PEACE CANDLE
Sometimes in life we don’t feel very peaceful. It could be a problem with a friendship, a feeling inside or something that’s happening in the world. It can make us feel unsettled, confused, or sad.
What makes you feel peaceful? How can we find peace?
Create your own cardboard paper candle and write on it to complete the following:
I feel at peace when …
I wish there was more peace in …
Peace happens when …
Place your candle cards of peace near Jesus in the manger.
Dear God, we pray for peace in life, lands, nations, families and in our hearts. Please fill our minds and hearts with more Peace so that we can contribute to bring Peace around the world.
