Why a site about prayer?

The purpose of this site is to encourage us to each go deeper in our prayer life. One way that we do that is by praying together. Another way we do that is by praying individually yet collectively on the same prayer themes. Our hope is that as we share prayers and reflect on them and pray over them at the same time in our individual lives, the Holy Spirit will speak to each of us and allow us to encourage and edify one another in prayer.

Advent Prayer for Peace

Loving God,
You sent your Son Jesus to break down walls that divide and to reconcile all people to you:
Teach us to be peacemakers and stewards of the earth.
Give us courage to share what we have with glad hearts so that others may be sheltered, fed, and loved.
Help us to live each day filled with your grace and in harmony with one another.
In the name of the Prince of Peace. Amen


  1. Give me courage to exude your peace to others. Fill me and cover me with your grace - every moment. Help me to live in harmony with every person in my life. For your honor and glory. Thank you, Jesus - the one and only Prince of Peace!

  2. Jesus, give me courage to share whatI have with a glad heart! Jesus, fill me with yourself to overflowing, that your peace and goodness may come out of me to ALL people! And in that moment when my old self will want to take over and I'll be tempted to fear and go my own way, please give me courage and strength to lift your name high and a heart surrendered to you! Jesus, thank you for your peace!!! Peace on earth, goodwill to men!! Thank you, Jesus!!!

  3. “And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.”
    ‭‭James‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬
