There is a road that leads to true peace … prayer

A peacemaker,” writes Henri Nouwen in The Road to Peace, “prays. Peace is a gift we receive in prayer. … Prayer is the beginning and the end, the source and the fruit, the core and the content, the basis and the goal for all peacemaking. I say this without apology, because it allows me to go straight to the heart of the matter, which is that peace is a divine gift, a gift we receive in prayer.” 

One of my favorite bloggers, pastor John Piippo, writes:  “For me this is not mere theory. … To not have a life of much abiding prayer is to live in the house of fear, the place where war breeds resentment and competition. The more I pray, the more I find myself free from anxiety and warring inclinations.”

Action point:  Today allow the peace of Christ to wash over you, as you rest in him, allowing his Spirit to bath you with a peace that passes your human understanding…
