The Lord Give You Peace

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in hear: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God.
~Matthew 5:3-9

Wherever they are, or wherever they go throughout the whole world they should not be quarrelsome, contentious or judgemental towards others.  Rather, it should be obvious that they are joyful, good humored, and happy in the Lord as they ought to be, and in greeting others, let them say, "The Lord give you peace."
~St. Francis' Rule

How are you being called to be a peacemaker?  Are there people or places in your life that are in need of prayers for peace?  List those prayers here and let "The Lord give you peace."
