Seeking God…to raise up champions of peace by His Spirit
“The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.” Isaiah 11:2
Our best efforts to make peace are as lasting as sand castles against the tide. Put Your Spirit of peacemaking power upon all of Your people – the same Spirit that empowered the work of Jesus. Give us the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord, so that many would know and be known by God. May they walk in the Joyous awe that is the fear of the Lord. Give us the Spirit of counsel and strength, that we might bring healing by our words and impart spiritual stamina for others to persevere in hope. Give us the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, so that many will grasp Your ways and walk in the light. Be lavish with Your Spirit. Make us champions of change. Make us mighty in meekness to wage Your peace so that our city takes on the flavor of Your coming kingdom.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they called be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9
May Your people bring reconciling grace into their families, workplaces, and neighborhoods. Cause them to instill hope for restored relationships in the midst of family feuds and racial tensions.
- For marriages to be restored by the counsel of Your people
- For believers to work together in unity
