Alert us now, eternal Spirit to your presence among us. May hearts and lives of all people be drawn to you through our witness. Holy One of God, strengthen our heart and soul as we seek to walk with courage and peace all our days. Amen.
Think of an experience when you have been an instrument of peace or witnessed an event of peace making. What elements contributed to the outcome? How did you sense God working in the situation? In what ways has that event or situation impacted your faith?
