Praying for Peace

Learning to pray is like learning a second language.

The best way to learn is immersion and practice.

Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13

1 Lord, you were favorable to your land;
you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 You forgave the iniquity of your people;
you covered all their sin.
8 Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,
for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints;
but let them not turn back to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him,
that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs up from the ground,
and righteousness looks down from the sky.
12 Yes, the Lord will give what is good,
and our land will yield its increase.
13 Righteousness will go before him
and make his footsteps a way.

1) Give yourself creative license.

2) Make it personal.

3) Allow it to lead you.

Learning to pray never ends.

Practice this week using Psalm 126!

Lord, you showed me favor,

you brought restoration.

You forgave my wrongs;

you covered all my sin.

Let me hear you when you speak, Lord;

l need you to speak peace to me, your precious son/daughter;

but help me not turn back to foolishness.

Surely your salvation is near to me when I revere you,

your glory moves into the neighborhood.

Steadfast love and faithfulness hang out together;

justice and peace greet each other with a bear hug.

Faithfulness bubbles up like springs of water,

and justice pours down like rain showers.

Lord, give me only what is truly good,

that I might bear life-giving fruit.

May justice go before you,

and make a clear path for you to walk through our world.
