In this crazy world we live in today it’s certainly not uncommon to hear the need for peace and I firmly believe that we need it now more than ever and the problem is that the peace the world offers is only temporary. I don’t know about you, but I’m so grateful that God never leaves us hanging in the midst of this stagnant and fleeting kind of peace. However, as Christians we are given a different peace; …”And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7) From this verse we can take heart in knowing that we are given complete peace from the previous verse Paul is talking about how we should pray about everything instead of taking it upon ourselves to worry about things we can’t necessarily control. (Philippians 4:6) In essence, the greatest thing we can do for our country and everyone around us is PRAY! It’s our most powerful weapon we just need to be willing to use it, but also having faith to be consistent in our prayer life no matter our circumstances.
