AINSDALE VILLAGE CHURCH
A joint United Reformed and Baptist Christian Church.
'Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.' (John 14: 27)
A Prayer for Peace Amid Chaos
You promise the peace of a still lake even in the midst of a storm.
You promise the peace of a slumbering child even in the middle of tension and disagreement.
You promise the peace of a poppy field even in the place of heartbreak and devastation.
Your promise is a peace that surpasses our human understanding.
So I choose to rest by the still waters, to lie down and rest amongst the poppies.
Your resurrection declared peace over trauma, power over death, and life everlasting.
I trust in you. Amen
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
