And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Lord, in the midst of the holiday rush, grant us the peace that surpasses all understanding, as promised in Philippians 4:7. As we prepare for the arrival of the Prince of Peace, help us declutter our hearts and homes, making room for the tranquility that only Your presence can bring. May our Advent journey be marked by moments of stillness and reflection, allowing Your peace to reign over us and radiate to those around us. We seek Your peace, Lord, as we await the birth of our Savior. Amen.
