This week, the leader of my prayer group asked us to settle our hearts and minds before the session, perhaps by envisioning a place of peace. Living in south Louisiana, water is a constant. After hearing the news of yet another massacre at yet another school campus, I need such a place to go in my mind. For me, that would look something like the pier below that I viewed earlier this week while walking on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain.
Jesus told His disciples, “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” (John 14:27, NIV).
