Even though we do not naturally know the way to peace, God has given the Way to peace in his Son and in his written word, The Holy Bible. Below is an acronym with a brief phrase easy to remember followed by bullet points with scriptures for meditations on the topic of peace, God's way.

    P.    Praise and Thanksgiving

    E.    Entreaty in Prayer

    A.    Acceptance of God's will

    C.    Christ and Control by the Holy Spirit

We can know the Way to Peace by God’s instruction in the Bible:

  1. The old self, the natural mind, does not know the way to peace.
