Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
John 14:27

Lord Jesus,
At your last meal before your crucifixion, you shared peace.
Your peace,
   the peace that holds firm even in the face of death
   the peace that holds firm even when it is betrayed
   the peace that forgives even when I fail you
   the peace that gives me joy even when I am sad
   the peace that is freely available to everyone.
Help me to live in this peace,
   to accept my circumstances and those around me
   to find peace in loving people as they are
   to rest in your blessings and love.  Amen.
