A Balm of Peace

Dear Lord,


As a human being, I have my weaknesses. There are times I react quickly to frustration or anger and end up in conflict with others. It seems as if there is another person inside me saying things I never intended to say. I have offended other people with my indifference, my harsh words, or my actions. You have called us to be peacemakers, and today, this is what I come to ask you to help me achieve. If I allow your peace to govern my entire being, then Your peace will flow through me to others. Help me inspire others with my words and actions. I want to be a soothing balm in the lives of others.


“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9
