prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles, "Peace I give to you; my own peace I leave with you:" Regard not our sins, but the faith of your Church, and give to us the peace and unity of that heavenly City, where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, now and for ever. Amen.

from The Daily Office of The Book of Common Prayer

I always loved this promise. Peace... there is so little of it in our world.

L.L., Amen. So sadly and tragically true. Will make God's answer in Jesus all the better, I guess. And good to see enclaves of the peace of Christ, in the here and now.
