Gods Peace is Only Obtained in Answer to Prayer - Even at Christmas

“...Let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”-- Phil. 4:6, 7.

When we pray and plead (supplication) with thanksgiving, making our requests known to God, we are guaranteed of receiving His one of a kind peace through His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus. When we enter into that place of perfect peace, the house of prayer or the Church of prayer, we are in the sacred Presence of the Prince of Peace.

When we make everything concerning this life a matter of prayer, Paul wanted us to realize that Christ gives us a portion of His own peace to our worshipping hearts. We can willingly understand the possibilities of prayer after we see that a mortal person can obtain a measure of this peace that only comes from the God of Peace that He possesses in His divine nature. We as children of God do not have to enter heaven in order to enjoy the benefits of this priceless possession of peace. It is Christ’s will to give this wonderful inheritance of His Peace to all the sons and daughters of God while still on earth. He exposed this truth when He said,

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” -- John 14: 27.

What could be anymore obviously true then that Jesus’ intention was to give His own peace to His praying and believing people. This is why God’s people can have untroubled hearts in this world of trouble. Christ would have us understand that His own perfect peace will validate us in hope, and comfort us in our heart. It is apparent that this delightful inheritance of the heart can only be obtained in answer to true prayer. God’s peace is of critical value to His divine character. We saw His peace manifested in Jesus Christ, The Prince of Peace.

The only time that there well ever be “peace on earth, goodwill toward man” is when God’s people pray and plead (supplication) with thanksgiving, making our requests known to God, then we are guaranteed of receiving His one of a kind peace through His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus.

The possibilities of prayer are gauged by faith in God’s ability to do. Faith is the one prime condition by which God works. Faith is the one prime condition by which a person prays. Faith draws on God to its full extent. Faith gives character to prayer. A feeble faith has always brought forth feeble praying. Vigorous faith creates vigorous praying. Christ asks this pointed question, “When the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?”
