Peace

“’Don’t be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds’ (Phil. 4: 6-7). St. Paul doesn’t promise our prayers will be answered in the way we might want. But he does promise peace. Peace can come in many forms, but especially our feeling a deep sense that God loves us.”
