Join Dan Schutte in a virtual novena for Pentecost. The peace we pray for today is not about the absence of turmoil or anxiety. It is truly that peace that the world cannot give.


We pray for peace

Four suggested steps:

Place yourself in the presence of God.
Close your eyes. Take some slow, deep breaths. Imagine that you are enveloped by the unconditional love of God.

Ask for the grace you desire today.
Pray that the Holy Spirit may ground your heart in peace, that you may know the peace that only God can give so that you might inspire peace to your own corner of the world.

Spend time in prayer and with the song.
Pray as you feel drawn, either sitting in silence or listening to the song. There is no right or wrong way to do it. Distractions are normal for all of us. God smiles on our small efforts without judgement or shame.

Pray in gratitude.
In your own words, express a simple prayer of thanks to God.

Litany of peace
The peace we pray for today is not about the absence of turmoil or anxiety. It is truly that peace that the world cannot give and it comes from knowing deep in our heart of hearts that our God is always with us. It comes from our being grounded in a faith that we may not always understand, yet a faith that dares to make the journey with the Spirit of Jesus as our constant companion.
