Holy God, you are my refuge in times of distress. Deliver my soul from the lying tongues. Give me your discernment to distinguish those who speak truth from those who deal in deceit. Grant me your peace, for I have lived far too long among those who hate peace. I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war! Draw me to your cross. Reconcile those divided in one body through the cross; put down hostility in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war!” (Psalm 120:7 ESV)
