For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, prince of Peace. -- Isaiah 9:6
"Let there be peace on Earth ... and let it begin with me," are the words in an old hymn. God I want to pray for peace, but too often think that peace is beyond my sphere of influence. Grant me the wisdom to see the where, when and how, and the courage to act in ways that bring about peace.
