Prayer for the Second Week of Advent: Peace

Gracious and Loving God,

As we enter the second week of Advent, we turn our hearts toward the flickering flame of the Candle of Peace. In the gentle glow of this symbolic light, we seek the tranquility that only You can provide.

Your Word reminds us in Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT), "Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."

Lord, in these moments of prayer, we surrender our anxieties and uncertainties to You. May the peace that surpasses understanding fill our hearts and minds. Help us to be bearers of Your peace to a world in need, and guide us in spreading tranquility through our words and actions.

As we reflect on the Candle of Peace, let it kindle a flame within us—a flame that dispels the darkness and ushers in Your comforting peace. 

May the peace of Christ rule in our hearts and overflow into the lives of those around us.

In Jesus' name, we pray.
