May your kingdom come soon (Luke 11:2; NLT).

Lord,

1. Forgive and heal
My sinful life –

2. All my resentment,
Pain, and inner strife.

3. Help me to live at peace
With everyone,

4. For then, at last, I’ll see
Your Kingdom come.

War and peace

I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war
(Psalm 120:7; NIV).

Lord,

1. Embed these words
In every soul:
I am for peace,
Though others are for war.

2. Lodge them in every heart
As our shared goal:
I am for peace,
Though others are for war.

3. Fix them in every mind
And every prayer:
I am for peace,
Though others are for war.

4. Put them in every mouth
Till all declare:
We are for peace!
Then strife will be no more.

He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever (Revelation 21:4; NLT).

In those days no one will be hurt or destroyed on my holy mountain (Isaiah 65:25; NLT).
