For the month of September—a month many of us associate with busyness and responsibilities picking back up—we invite you to take a few moments each day to focus on peace. When we share Christ’s peace with each other every week, we’re offering one another a gift of presence and hope, and we carry that into the world each week. Why not use this month to channel God’s peace through your prayers and intentions to people and places throughout the world who ache for peace?

You can use whatever words are most comfortable for you, and on the backside of this page are several prayers to reflect on peace in your own life and throughout the world.
