August 29, Loving Lord, our hearts are crying out for peace in the world, and yet we know that Scripture has told us that throughout this church age and beyond, and until the Lord Jesus Himself returns to set up His Millennial kingdom, there will be no peace in this world.
Rather, there will be wars and rumours of wars, which will cause humanity to cry out for peace, peace when there is no peace.
Help us to understand that there will be no peace until that time when Jesus returns to earth as the Prince of Peace, at the end of the coming tribulation period. Lord, I long for peace and indeed I pray for peace in this world but Father, I do not want to pray against the plans and purposes which You have set by Your divine decree. Help me to pray intelligently as I see the people of the world crying out for peace, peace, when the world can never provide the peace that this world longs for.

Father, we know that You have purposed that grace comes before judgement and we also know that the coming judgement of the world is to demonstrate Your mighty power to the nations, so that the nations will know that You are the Lord. Father, I pray that many, many men and women will turn to You during this coming time of tribulation, about which we read in Revelation.
I pray this in Jesus' name,.Read this prayer for world peace in the midst of tragedy and violence. Seek God's face and be the courage and love our world needs. You allow each mind to think and teach each heart to beat.
