And the Lord will become King over all the earth; on that day the Lord will be one and his name one. v9

For many centuries, prophets had spoken about the coming Messiah, and how the Messiah would bring a reign of peace and justice to the land. I think that same vision and desire is still around today, especially when we see the devastation and pain in the media and in communities in Gods world.

More than ever before, we yearn for peace to come so spears can be beaten into ploughshares and the Lion may lie with the Lamb.

Prince of Peace, come into our lives and lay your gentle Spirit within me. Amen
