Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
At your last meal before your crucifixion, you shared peace.
the peace that holds firm even in the face of death
the peace that holds firm even when it is betrayed
the peace that forgives even when I fail you
the peace that gives me joy even when I am sad
the peace that is freely available to everyone.
Help me to live in this peace,
to accept my circumstances and those around me
to find peace in loving people as they are
to rest in your blessings and love. Amen.
