I want your peace in my heart and mind. I know Jesus died on the cross for me and through Him comes a peace that passes all understanding. Your peace is what I seek, especially during this holiday season. The stress of shopping, the stress of knowing family have expectations upon me, the stress of preparing food, or bringing food to events, and the stress of working can all combine to keep me far from you. Father, I do not want to find myself outside of your peace during the joyous occasion of Jesus' birth. Flood my heart and mind with your peace. I ask these things through the mighty name of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
