Tuesday December 23: Day 27

Today is the last day of preparation as tomorrow evening is Christmas eve.

The last minute shopping, the last minute preparations, the last full day to finish all those things that need to be done.

Families are travelling.

In this time of getting all the little things done I wanted to share a prayer for peace today, to focus on the greater picture in God’s earth:

Prayer for Peace - Tanoh Assoi, Côte d’Ivoire, Africa

Heavenly Creator, God of peace, your love for us is great. Thank you for your vision of peace and happiness for each one of us. May your name be blessed! May your name be glorified! May your name be exalted! May you give justice for those who face injustice and hope for those who are hopeless. Lord, you are the source of peace. Let your peace reign in our lives! Let your peace reign in our homes! Let your peace reign in this world, Let us rejoice in your peace today and forever.  Amen.

62 At midnight I rise to give you thanks
for your righteous laws.

Psalm 119

Pastor Ron Rowbottom
