Before you begin, pause for a few moments and relax. Take several deep breaths. Be aware of the loving presence of God within you.
Psalm 34:15 Turn from evil and do good;seek peace and pursue it.
This sounds like common sense. While at first glance this verse might seem passive, it includes four action verbs that belie its initial appearance-turn, do, seek and pursue. There is nothing passive here. The life of discipleship is active, dynamic, and vigilant. A disciple is constantly in the process of personal conversion. This process creates a chain reaction that gathers momentum as it goes, leading others to experience the peace and freedom of the Kingdom of God.
(Speak to God, using this prayer or a prayer of your own.)
Jesus, thank you for calling me to conversion of life. Guide my feet on the path to peace.
