Advent, Day 2: Psalm for peace

Today’s reading: Psalm 122

within you
find humility
to the One
who is above all
and through all
and in all
[for war is made
by those who cannot afford to
kneel to another]
within you
find obedience
to the statues of the Lord
[for war is made
by those who set
their own rules]
within you
find a common voice
with all
who come to worship
[for war is made
by those who
cannot hear another voice
than their own]
within you
find security for
those you love and even
for those whom God alone
loves
[and war is often made
by those]
within you, my brother,
my sister, my friend,
find peace
