LET US PRAY:
- A PRAYER FOR PEACE ON EARTH
Let us pray that Peace shall dwell within us and upon this Earth among all nations, all religions and all people of good will. Amen.
Let us pray that all nations and all religions come together in the name of social justice, human dignity and the common good. Amen.
Let us pray that prejudice, greed, hatred and violence give way to equality, humility, compassion and Peace. Amen.
For it is prophesized and it is written, and let us pray that it shall be known and said among all people and all nations:
“Glory to God in the highest and on Earth peace to those on whom his favor rests”
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”
“Pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord with purity of heart”
“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness”
“The work of justice will be peace; the effect of justice, calm and security forever”
“There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens … A time to love, … and a time of peace”
“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; upon his shoulder dominion rests"
"They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace”
“And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the Peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful”
(Luke 2:14; Matt. 5:9; 2 Tim. 2:22; Gal. 5:22; Isaiah 32:17; Eccl. 3:1, Eccl. 3:8; Isaiah 9:6; Col. 3:15).
2. REMOVE YOUR CLOAK OF PRIDE.
Stand bare and humbled before your God.
Be confidant in faith, and give thanks that He is your Redeemer, your Savior;
And that He has chosen you to do great things.
Do as your Lord commands.
"Sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the Earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name.
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day."
3. BE HUMBLE BEFORE YOUR GOD AND HE WILL MAKE YOU STRONG.
"Come, let us bow down in worship;
let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
For he is our God"
4. LIFT UP YOUR VOICE AND SING PRAISE TO GOD ALMIGHTY.
You are a beloved child of your Father, your God, your Creator.
Share His love with all of your brothers and sisters.
We are one human race and one family born in our Father's love.
Lift up your heart and sing praise to our Father.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
5. THE LORD IS WITH YOU.
In this very moment, embrace the Word of the Lord, feel His presence and strength.
He is with you right now in this moment - rejoice and be glad.
You are the fertile soil and His Word is the seed, prepare yourself for the harvest.
The seed is the Word of God, Christ is the sower; all who come to Him will live forever
6. UNBURDEN YOURSELF AND FIND REST IN THE LORD.
Brothers and sisters, may the Lord's Peace be upon each of you and your families this day and all days. Amen!
"Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am meek and humble of heart;
and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light."
6. REPENT AND BELIEVE.
Today is the day of the Lord.
Repent, Rejoice and be glad that you are His beloved child.
Love your Father as He loves you.
Look around you, and see the image of your Father in the faces of all your brothers and sisters in Christ.
See His image in yourself, and Love your brothers and sisters as He loves you.
The Word of your Lord, Jesus Christ: "The Kingdom of God is at hand: Repent and Believe in the Gospel."
7. CHARITY IS GIVEN IN LOVE THROUGH GRACE.
Measure your wealth, not in dollars, but in faith and obedience to the will of God.
May your charity be given, not from abundance, but from your love and a heart given to the grace of Jesus Christ.
"For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor although he was rich;
so that by his poverty you might become rich."
(2 Cor 8:9).
8. LIVE IN CHRIST WITHOUT FEAR.
Do not fear, for the Lord is always with you!
Everyday you are tested by family, friends, co-workers, strangers, media, government and sometimes your own self-doubts
- they tell you to fear everything - violence, crime, terrorists, a lack of money, and even your own belief that Jesus Christ is your Savior.
But, they have no power over you when you live in faith and trust in your God.
Who do you believe, men and women who use fear as a weapon against you, or your own Father in heaven who knows you in unconditional love?
You are a child of the Almighty Father, the Creator,
He made you to be fearless and to know Him in eternal life.
Seek a close relationship with Him, believe in Him, and He will deliver you from all evil. Amen.
"Glorify the Lord ... I sought the Lord, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears" (Psalm 34:5).
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
9. YOUR GOD WILL RAISE YOU UP.
Brothers and sisters, open your heart and believe His truth, pray with joy, humility and hope,
for "we too believe and therefore speak, knowing that the one who raised the Lord Jesus
will raise us also with Jesus and place us ... in His presence ( 2 Cor 4:13-14).
Let us pray in unity and come together in the Love and Peace of Jesus Christ.
10. ACKNOWLEDGE THE LORD AND FIND SALVATION.
Acknowledge who you are and who you will be each day. Every single morning, look in the mirror and see the child of God, your Father. Do not fear what you see, do not hide your identity, but acknowledge that you have been born into the family of your Savior, Jesus Christ.
Begin today with confidence and joy, proclaim the love that God has for you and that same love you have for each of your brothers and sisters in Christ. See yourself for who you really are - you are faithful, you are loving, you are committed to become the best that you can be and you know that your God is showing you the way. Amen.
Jesus Christ is telling you in this very moment, "Everyone who acknowledges me before others, I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father" (Matthew 10:32). Salvation is yours, accept it and be joyful.
11. PRAY AND CALL UPON THE LORD.
Ask someone to pray with you today. Pray with them for peace, for increased love for your brothers and sisters, and for unity in spirit.
All this shall be yours because you have called upon your Lord this day,
He is with you, and He will grant your prayers in accordance with the measure of your faith.
"Amen, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth
about anything for which they are to pray,
it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them" (Matthew 18:19-20).
@Pontifex: The unity of love is realized when we announce together the wonders God has done for us.
12. FIND PEACE IN THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS CHRIST.
Let us pray for the Lord's Peace.
Pray that the Lord's Peace is upon us.
Pray that the Lord's Peace comes upon all of our brothers and sisters in need.
As we pray so becomes our heart.
Let us pray together for Peace in the redemptive Spirit of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid" (John 14:27), "And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying: 'Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests'” (Luke 2:13-14).
13. SING PRAISE AND REJOICE.
Lord Jesus, we give thanks for all that You have given to us today.
Praise be to our Father, God Almighty;
Praise be to the Son, Jesus Christ;
Praise be to your eternal Holy Spirit.
Please hear my voice, O Lord;
Glory to God in the highest.
"I give thanks to your name, because of your kindness and your truth: When I called, you answered me; you built up strength within me" (Ps 138:2-3).
"For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen" (Rom 11:36).
14. PROCLAIM YOUR FAITH AND LOVE.
All love comes from knowing the Word of Jesus Christ and from giving yourself completely to His Word.
Be strong, be fearless, be honest, and be truthful as you proclaim your faith in our Father.
You control your destiny; and God wants you to know your destiny of eternal life in Him and with Him in heaven.
Listen to His Word and proclaim your love, as you hear Jesus whispering in your ear,
"Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and her, and We will come to them."
