Establishing Peace

By   •   July 22   •   Topics: ,

Before the Big Four Conference in Geneva I watched President Eisenhower kneel in a chapel and ask God for divine guidance in the deliberations to follow. I felt sure that God would answer his earnest prayer. I believe that He did, for President Eisenhower during those days displayed the spirit of a true peacemaker on the international level. The only corrective measure in establishing peace is for men as individuals to know the peace of God. Though I am not wholly averse to movements which strive in one way or another for world peace, I have a strong conviction that such peace will never come unless there is a spiritual dynamic at the core. I pray for wars to cease, just as I pray for crime to stop; but I know that the basic cause of both crime and war is the inherent sinfulness of human nature. The world cannot be reborn until men are born again and are at peace with God.

    Dear Lord, I pray for peace in this nation as well as others. Let’s us take part in the peace that only comes from You and the world can’t give.

    What a blessing from God when I was given the peace Jesus was talking about in John 14:27, I was 50 I was saved at the age of 12, but I didn’t find my salvation until then and I have not been the same since, Glory to God in the highest. I truly pray that everyone can find that peace. Thank You Jesus. Amen
