Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. - Matthew 5:9 (NIV)

Today's Prayer
God of peace, help us to be better peacemakers in the world. Give us a sense of openness toward the people we meet. We pray as Jesus taught us, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil” (Lk. 11:2-4, KJV). Amen.
