Becoming an Instrument of Peace…

     These words taken from a prayer known as The Peace Prayer of St. Francis are powerful, worth pondering and putting into practice.

     In the culture in which God has placed you and me, we are assaulted on a regular basis with the impact of

     hatred,

          offense,

               discord,

                    error,

                         doubt,

                              despair,

                                   darkness and

                                        sadness.

     I’m asking God to use my one puny, seemingly insignificant life as a conduit through which flows

     love,

          pardon,

               unity,

                    truth,

                         faith,

                              hope,

                                   light and

                                        joy.

     I hope you’ll want to join me in the pursuit of peace, beginning in our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, faith communities—even throughout the world.

     I’d love you to share examples of how you are doing that. What has God been saying to your heart about this matter?

Dear Heavenly Father…Please, help me—help us—to become more effective, influential instruments of your peace!

Blessings to all…
