Saint Paul admonishes us in Scripture to: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (Thessalonians 5:16-18). In the Epistle of James, an author of the same name reminds us that: “Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness” (James 3:18). The Gospel of Luke tells us that “Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God” (Luke 6:12).
There is a lot going on in this world. It seems that ever since the beginning of the world, it has been filled with all sorts of craziness. You only have to turn on the television or read a newspaper to see all of the tragedies and catastrophes.
Please join us in praying for peace!
