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
