Because Lutherans believe in peace. We pray, O God of Peace, come~
Form us into your Peace-makers. Enable us to look within ourselves, to make straight our crooked hearts, to patiently and lovingly await changes in ourselves and others. As you gather us tenderly, and hold us close, may we also show that same compassion to the world. Fill our hearts with your peace, and our lives with your love, that these may flow from our lives and into our world. We ask this through Christ, our Savior and our peace, Amen. We are better, waiting, together.
