SOW PEACE WHEREVER YOU GO
"Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness." James 3:18
I want to challenge you today to become a peacemaker who sows peace in order to raise a harvest of righteousness wherever you go. I guarantee you that the Lord Himself will give a harvest of righteousness. Will you join me today and rededicate your life to the Lord Jesus Christ? Make this prayer your own...
Dear Lord Jesus, today we want to go back to the basics, to the grassroots. Lord, we want to tell You first of all that we love You. We repent all of our sin. We ask You to forgive our self-centeredness. We want to put You first and foremost in our lives, Lord. We thank You, Lord, that Your Word says if we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness all these other things will be given to us.
We ask now, Lord, that You will come into our lives and fill us with the fruit of Your Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Peace is what we desire most these days, Lord. Grant us Your everlasting peace.
We direct our lives to You today. Mould us so that we can have the mind and attitude of Jesus Christ, so that we can become like the Prince of Peace more and more every day. We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
Now go out and sow peace wherever you go. Plant and water the seeds, and see how God makes them grow.
Lord Jesus, I rededicate my life to You. You are the Prince of Peace. Empower me through Your Spirit to sow the seed of peace wherever I go. Amen.
