A Prayer for Christmas Peace

Bring peace into your Christmas season with this prayer.

Prince of Peace,

We know peace is possible

only through you.


In our days full

of planning and cleaning

shopping and wrapping

baking and decorating

we need your peace

which passes all understanding.


Prince of Peace,

we lay before you

our hustle and bustle,

hurts and trials,

anxiety and fear.


Let our hearts find no rest

except when we seek you.


Let none of our searching

lead to satisfaction

outside you.


Lead our hearts to peace.


Help us remember

peace once came through the impossible:

a virgin’s womb holding

the son of God, the Prince of Peace.


Help us live out busy December

knowing deep inside

peace is possible

only through you,

peace is possible

in our impossible,

peace is ready

and waiting.

    • Sarah Geringer

      Thanks Debbie! Blessed Advent to you!

  • So good.
    With all the talk of peace on earth at Christmas time, it’s good for us to remember its True Source.

    • Sarah Geringer

      Thanks Michele! Blessings to you today!

  • Beautiful! This>> “Help us remember peace once came through the impossible.” May He help us remember “peace is possible in our impossible.”

    • Sarah Geringer

      Absolutely! My theme verse for 2018 is along those lines.

  • Oh yes, Sarah, I sure do need His peace, and not just in December either. “As a deer pants for water so my soul longs for Him.”
    Wishing you Christmas blessings and peace, my friend!

    “peace is possible

    in our impossible”

    Oh yes! He loves to work best when we think it is impossible.

    Loved this, Sarah! ~ Jerralea

    • Sarah Geringer

      Glad you enjoyed it, Jerralea! Enjoy your day today!

  • Kristi Woods

    Beautiful words, Sarah, especially the ending. Enjoyed the visit today from #heartencouragementThursday.

    • Sarah Geringer

      Thank you Kristi. Blessings to you!

  • How lovely. Thank you for penning this timely prayer, friend. Hope your book writing is going well. xoxo

    • Sarah Geringer

      Thank you Brenda! Haven’t started just yet…maybe this weekend? Hugs to you!

  • Summer Overstreet

    I just loved this, Sarah! The verse about remembering that peace once came through the impossible is so moving. No situation is too out of control, too far gone or too impossible for God to set straight again. What a beautiful promise during the holiday season and every day!

    • Sarah Geringer

      Thank you, Summer! Yes, our God is the ruler over the impossible–I need to remember that in the ensuing drama that awaits this year. Blessings to you, friend!

  • Bev @ Walking Well With God

    Beautiful prayer!! For some reason this year, I’ve been having trouble quieting my soul….perhaps because I am weary and burn’t out. I keep hearing God say, “Rest” and I keep arguing, but look at what all needs doing. His word doesn’t change. It’s been a doozy of a year….I know that God knows best. Sacrificing my stubbornness to listen. Thanks for the reminder of God’s wisdom.
