Heavenly Father, I lift up my words to You through the great and powerful Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. You created all things ​to be perfect and to exemplify Your glory. However, man has made Your perfect creation take on the stains of our transgressions, and sin has left the world in a state of perpetual chaos. Thank you that You are our peace and comfort in the storms of life. It is because of Your Son (Jesus) dying on the cross and being resurrected that I can have “peace with God” and “the peace of God.”

In Isaiah 9:6b in the Bible, You describe Jesus as the “Prince of Peace.” What a beautiful description that is. It is a great blessing that You show me in Philippians 4:4-6 how to have the peace that is expressed in verse 7. Direct me to practice verses 4, 5, and 6 to be blessed with Your peace. Philippians 4:4-6 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.Philippians 4:7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Thank you that when all else around me is crumbling, I can turn to You, “The Prince of Peace,” knowing that Your love never fails, and no one can separate me from Your love. Remind me often that the same power that resurrected Jesus from the grave is available today to give me peace with others. Psalm 29:11The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.” I ask that You bless me with Your perfect peace. Amen.

Jesus, the Prince of Peace

Lord, I come to You through Your Son’s Name to thank You for the endless peace and grace You give. Even many years before Jesus was born, it was prophesied that He would be the Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6For unto us a Child is born, unto to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” It is because of Your Son Jesus dying on the cross and His resurrection for our sins and failures that we have the privilege of having peace with You. Romans 5:1Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Thank you that because of my personal relationship with Jesus, I can truly enjoy the peace of God dwelling in me. John 14:27Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

It is Your peace within me that allows me to have peace in situations and with people around me. Mark 9:50bHave peace one with another.” It is such a blessing to have You bring clarity to my confusion, hope to my suffering, and peace to my turmoil. I know that these verses and others allow me to rest secure in You as my source of comfort and peace. I rest in Your promise in Psalm 4:8. “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Thank you for the privilege of coming to You in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
