Fruit of the Spirit: Peace

The fruit of peace is a gift from God. To enjoy true peace in any area of our lives, we must first have made peace with God through faith in his Son Jesus Christ. Once we have received Christ, God’s supernatural and lasting peace is fully available to us. Here are some prayers to help us experience God’s peace every day in our hearts and circumstances.

Show me how to walk in your power today, focused on you and not the things around me that cause me stress.

A Prayer For Romans 14:17

Dear Father, thank you for calling me into your family and including me in your heavenly kingdom. I know that the way I interact with other Christians really matters to you. But sometimes, I build my own personal kingdom by pushing what I think is best. At times, I forget your kingdom priority of loving other Christians and pursuing peace within my church and family. Today, please give me eyes to see what really matters and also the heart to pursue your desires over mine.

I want you to use me in my family and community as an instrument that breaks down barriers and unites hearts through your powerful gospel of peace.

Lord, I praise you as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. In your complex nature, you are perfect in unity and one in purpose.

Help me to forgive others. Grow my desire to strengthen the bond of peace with those I struggle to love.

As I think about your goodness and faithfulness, I know I am secure in your love.
