Dear Lord and Creator God,
Thank you for always being near. Thank you for the blessing of your presence and love always.
Help everyone on earth to learn to rely on you in time of need. Sometimes, we think we are responsible for curing every ill of the world. So often we find ourselves unable to right the wrongs we see. Help us to come to you and in humility ask for your great and wonderful help.
Thank you for the peace that has been sent to the world in the person of your son. Help people in the world to understand, great Lord, that the only peace mankind will ever find is in obedience to your word and in conducting ourselves as you will.
Thank you for the way to peace through your son and our Savior.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
