Colossians 3:15

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. - Colossians 3:15

Dear Jesus,

In your Old Testament the prophet called you the "Prince of Peace."  I like that name.  You have brought peace to my life.  Before you, I was good at competition and fighting.  I was not good at giving and forgiving.  I was not good a peace.  But now I know and feel how it works.  Your peace that assures me that all my needs, even my destiny, are met by you.  I have peace that even though I am a sinner.  I am loved, forgiven and protected.  Now with the strength that peace gives me, help me to spread peace to all who intersect with me.  


The peace of Christ changes us from the inside out. It first settles the heart, then the life, then those we touch.
