Generous God, it is my deepest desire to be your child – to be called as such by you and to be known as such by others. You have told me that for this to be so, I must be a person who practices peace.
Forgive me for the many moments in which I missed the opportunity to be generous in my peace-giving.
Open my eyes to see when the gift of peace is mine for the offering.
Soften my spirit that I may relinquish that part of me that deems another as not being worthy of the gift of peace.
Make my words full of your peace-giving intent and design my actions that you, the Prince of Peace, may be made flesh again and again and again.
All for your glory, Amen.
