Dec 22: A Christmas long ago, peace entered the world.


We who go out to die shall be remembered, because we gave the world peace. That will be our reward, though we will know nothing of it, but lie rotting in the earth – dead. – Philip Gibbs

And may the peace of Christ reign in your hearts, because it is for this that you were called together in one body. Always be thankful. – Colossians 3:15

In a war-torn place, fear exist.
We may feel God has deserted us.
Cruelty rules over peace.
Suffer the children of war.

The Serpent is the same today.
In Genesis it tempted Eve and succeeded.
It is still roaming and whispering evil.
One of its mission is to destroy Peace.

Peace treaties broken again and again.
The world bleeding, its wounds opened.
It is Christ peace we need; we search.
A peace which the world cannot understand.

Faith in God; Trust in God.
A Christmas long ago, peace entered the world.
Not for the rich but for the down trodden.
Christ Himself is peace.

Please continue to share with friends, for the World needs our prayers. Peace be with you. Amen.
