Peace agenda

The Lord will mediate between nations and will settle international disputes. They will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will no longer fight against nation, nor train for war anymore. ~ Isaiah 2:4 (NLT)

“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” ~ Luke 2:14 (NLT)

Universal peace is a major part of God's agenda. Start with me.
Lord of my life, you bless me day by day with your favor and peace. Yet I confess that my heart is filled with the fragments of anger, fear, and resentment. I want perfection and to get my own way, but you simply desire my heart. Take it and turn it into a plowshare for your work on earth. Amen. (Daily Texts, Mount Carmel Ministries edition)
