"God, help me gain inner peace by placing my worries in your hands."
For Christians Jesus is the source of Peace. In the Old Testament Isaiah wrote “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulders. And his name will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6).
How do you feel when you are peaceful?
What sort of things make you feel peaceful?
How important is peace in your life?
Do you have a special place where you feel peaceful?
What are we doing in school to learn about Peace?
Each class is thinking about what it means to be a peaceful person. On the playground we are learning to be peaceful when we play games with our friends. This means not shouting or being mean to each other. In our curriculum we take time to remember those who allow us to live in Peace.
Peace at Home
Take some quiet time for yourself to be at peace with your thoughts.
Try yoga or meditation to help you feel peaceful.
Try listening to calm music to help you relax.
Be respectful when others in your house need some peace and quiet.
Try to sit still and relax all your muscles in your body. Think of a happy place. Peace is being free from anyone or anything disturbing us. It is taking time to calm down on our own and taking the time to enjoy the quiet. A peaceful person can calm down quickly if they get too excited as well as talking in a calm way. A peaceful person also knows how to listen to their thoughts and act in a mature way about them.
