The Mercy of Peace

"Peace is such a precious jewel that I would give anything for it but the truth". ~ Matthew Henry

Peace is a mercy of Heaven to all who would reach above the mountaintops in gratitude and need. 

Peace be yours when dawn is breaking,

Peace be yours when shadows fall;

May your restless heart be cradled, 

In the One who loves us all. 

Peace when storms surround and shake you,

Peace through wind and rain and hail;

Know that God will not forsake you,

Though your heart and spirit fail.

Peace be yours through pain and sadness,

Peace when hope seems at the end;

May the God of joy and gladness, 

Ever be your guide and friend. 

God's own peace be ever with you,

May your spirit dwell in might;

'Till the day beyond tomorrow,

'Till the dawn beyond all light. Amen ~ ANON

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, that passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

It is from within prayer to the Lord that the man of God is rightly guarded. His safe heart and mind is protected unto purity, and thus peace can flow.

Peace is the fruit of believing prayer. ~ M.R. Vincent
