Think about that for a moment. Relentless Peace. Although it doesn’t really mean the same thing, relentless peace probably makes you think of the idea of endless peace or always having a calm, unshakeable grounded feeling. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? What would that even look like? Is that even attainable during these uncertain times?
Those who predicted 2020 to be the year of change probably didn’t imagine it would be this different. The COVID-19 health crisis has shaken the world upside down. Everyday life and preoccupations were drastically interrupted. Lots of businesses and personal plans were scrapped so suddenly. People everywhere were experiencing doubts and fears. There’s panic in the air. It’s like breaking new ground.
When we read a phrase like relentless prayer it can sound daunting or like it is going to be A LOT of work. The reality is, relentless prayer, or even the scriptural reference of praying without ceasing, can be as much about inviting peace into our lives and circumstances as it is about petitioning Heaven for relief from the things that are pressing in on us here on earth.
