Project Pray for Peace
Our world is a mess..
Pick a topic: political unrest, gun violence, war, COVID, environmental issues, homelessness, human rights...the list of things that are wrong with our world today seems endless.
We can feel helpless and overwhelmed in the face of such issues.
But we should know, that none of this can - or will - be fixed through human effort alone.
We humans are only dust and spirit. But when our prayers are united AND in the will of God, all things are possible, even peace.
One of the first verses of the Lord's Prayer tells us to ask for peace:
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
First Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to "Pray without ceasing"
Project Pray for Peace combines these two Biblical principals.
How it works:
Those who sign up for Project Pray for Peace pledge to pray for peace every day at 12:00pm Central.
Prayers do not have to be long, or even verbal. "Flash Prayers" (quick thought prayers) are perfect!
Not sure how to pray? See Matthew 6:10 above.
Close your prayer with, "in Jesus' name we pray, Amen"
John 14:13 promises, "You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, because the work of the Son brings glory to the Father"
3. Set an alarm / notification on your phone, desktop or somewhere else that will remind you to pause each day at 12:00pm Central and pray for peace.
The LORD holds everything in His hands. We don't know when, or how He will answer our prayer for peace; but let us have faith to know that He will.
