Prayer For God’s Promise Of Peace

5 Powerful Prayers for Peace Within

Prayer For God’s Promise Of Peace

Is your heart troubled? Are you feeling the psalmist, who asked his own soul, “Why are you in despair? And why have you become disturbed within me?” One of the hardest parts of knowing peace is understanding how it has nothing to do with control.

If you're having trouble with trust or finding the words to pray above the howling of the scary storms, feel free to offer up these words to the Lord now! Below are 5 of our most favorite prayers to speak when we need God's peace to speak over our heart and mind.

A Prayer for Peace Within

Oh Lord, sometimes my insides feel a battle zone, where missiles are falling too close to home. Other times I'm caught in an endless storm, with thoughts flying control.

Confusion reigns, and defeat creeps in to steal my joy. I need your peace—the deep-down-in-your-heart kind that stays with me day and night and speaks confidently into the wind.

Calm my anxious spirit, Lord; all the attacking “if-onlys” and “what-ifs” fill me with needless worry.

I know that trust is a big part of experiencing peace and that fear has no place in my life. Most of the things I worry about or dread don't even happen. So I'm declaring my trust in you.

I'm releasing the reins of my life again and asking you to take control. I may need to pray this same prayer daily, but I'm tired of the frenzy of life that leaves my schedule and my thoughts without any margin.

I need more of you, Lord, and less of me.

I surrender and admit: I can't control people, plans, or even all my circumstances, but I can yield those things to you, and focus on your goodness.

Thank you today for every good gift you've given, every blessing you've sent, all the forgiveness I did not deserve, and, yes, for every trial you've allowed into my life. You bring good every circumstance if I'll only let go and believe you.

I know that when I pray and give thanks instead of worrying, you have promised that I can experience the kind of peace that passes all understanding. That's your kind of peace, Lord. And it's the kind I crave.

Whenever I’m stressed, anxious, or afraid, help me remember to run to you. You're the only one that can calm my fears and end my fretful behavior.

Whether in trivial or heavy matters, I know you will not only give me peace; Lord, you will be my peace.

And when I draw close to you—in prayer, in reading your Word, in helping another, in taking my mind off myself—you will be there, up close and personal.

I can't handle these times alone, Lord. Will you speak peace and calm my storms, or hold my hand while we walk through them together? Will you bring the reassuring wisdom of those who have come through similar times into my life? Thank you, Lord. I'm trusting you.

In the name of the One who makes the wind and the waves stand still, Amen. ~ Rebecca Barlow Jordan

A Short Prayer for Peace

Lord, I come before you ready to pour out my worries, anxieties and fears at Your feet. I am claiming and declaring Your promises for blessings of peace and strength over my life. Bring a peace into my soul that passes all worldly understanding and make me a light for others to see Your strength.

A Prayer for Peace of Mind

Almighty God, We bless you for our lives, we give you praise for your abundant mercy and grace we receive. We thank you for your faithfulness even though we are not that faithful to you. Lord Jesus, we ask you to give us all around peace in our mind, body, soul and spirit. We want you to heal and remove everything that is causing stress, grief, and sorrow in our lives.

Please guide our path through life and make our enemies be at peace with us. Let your peace reign in our family, at our place of work, businesses and everything we lay our hands on.

Let your angels of peace go ahead of us when we go out and stay by our side when we return. In Jesus' name, Amen.

A Prayer for Missing Peace

Father God, my heart is filled with chaos and confusion. I feel as if I am drowning in my circumstances and my heart is filled with fear and confusion. I really need the strength and peace that only You can give. Right now, I choose to rest in You. In Jesus' name, Amen. ~ Mary Southerland

A Prayer for Peace When You're Overwhelmed

Lord, when my heart is overwhelmed, overwhelm me with Your peace. Lead me to You, my rock. Guide me to Your Word which gives me strength and refuge. Help me not to run to lesser things. Draw me to run to You first. Help me get into the habit of taking my “overwhelmed” and placing it under your will. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~ Jennifer Rothschild

A Prayer for the Troubled Heart

Dear God, Our world is hurting and broken. We pray for those who have lost loved ones this week, please comfort them in their grief and loss, cover them with your peace and presence, as only your Spirit can do.

   We know that in whatever we face, you are our Peace and Refuge, a very present help in times of trouble. Thank you that you remind us throughout your Word, we do not face the storms alone, but you are always with us.  Whispering calm.

Speaking peace. Bringing rest to our souls.

We confess our need for you. We ask you to forgive us for trying to figure everything out on our own, for not trusting that you are more than able and powerful to work on our behalf.

Forgive us for picking back up what we already determined to lay down at your feet.

Give us the ability to trust you more, give us a heart that finds rest in your presence, give us the wisdom to seek peace and pursue it, remembering it’s only to be found in you alone.

Thank you that your yoke is easy and your burden is light. Thank you that you care for us. Thank you that the peace of your loving and strong presence guards and protects our hearts and minds in you.

Thank you that we do not have to walk in fear or live in overwhelmed cycles of worry and stress. Thank you for your voice that breaks through the greatest wind and storm swirling around us, and whispers “Peace, be still.

” Thank you that you sent your One and Only Son to set us free. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen. ~ Debbie McDaniel

Lord, how I long to break free from negative thinking and embrace peace and joy and optimism. I invite You to begin transforming my thought patterns and help me recognize, reject and replace thoughts that are not pleasing to You. In Jesus' Name, Amen. ~ Traci Miles

All the Promises of God Are Yes in Christ

Prayer For God’s Promise Of Peace

Because I was sure of this, I wanted to come to you first, so that you might have a double pleasure; I wanted to visit you on my way to Macedonia, and to come back to you from Macedonia and have you send me on my way to Judea.

Was I vacillating when I wanted to do this? Do I make my plans a worldly man, ready to say Yes and No at once? As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we preached among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No; but in him it is always Yes.

For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why we utter the Amen through him, to the glory of God.

As long as we live in this age—with its sin and pain—our contentment in God should always be a dissatisfiedcontentment.

Paul said in another place, “Not that I have alreadyobtained this or am already perfect; but I press on to make it myown, because Christ Jesus has made me his own” (Philippians 3:12).

Christ has made us his own! Our text today (in verses 21–22) saysthat God himself establishes us, anointed us (the Greek behind theRSV “commissioned”), sealed us, and gave us his Spirit as aguarantee. God means for us to have a deep contentment and securityin Christ.

But Paul does not say, “Because I am secure, I coast.” He says,”Because he made me his own, I press on to make it my own.” Helongs for perfection. He longs for fullness. He is dissatisfied withhis present state. His contentment is a dissatisfied contentment.

He knows that in Christ he has every spiritual blessing in theheavenly places (Ephesians 1:3). But he also knows that his experienceof these blessings is not as full as it could be.

Paul knows thatthere is more to experience of the hope of our calling and theglory of our inheritance and the greatness of the power at workwithin us (Ephesians 1:18–19).

He knows that there is more strength ofthe Spirit for the inner man, there is more to know of theindwelling Christ, there is more breadth and length and height anddepth of Christ's love to discover, and there is more of thefullness of God than he or any of us has experienced (Ephesians3:16–19).

Therefore every believer, whose contentment is really from theSpirit of God, is a dissatisfied believer. And therefore every truebeliever is a person who prays. Prayer is the heartfelt expressionof holy dissatisfaction.

The more satisfied you are with yourselfthe way you are and with the world the way it is, the less you willpray.

But the more you desire all the fullness of God, the more youdesire to know the breadth and length and height and depth of thelove of Christ, the more you desire to be strengthened with thepower of the Holy Spirit according to the riches of God's glory,the more you desire to know the hope of your calling and the richesof the glory of your inheritance, and the more you desire to beholy and pure and compassionate and patient and kind andtenderhearted and bold and fruitful, the more you will pray and themore passionately you will pray. Little prayer signifies littledesire for God. Perfunctory prayer signifies a perfunctoryrelationship with God.

Prayer at the Dawning of a New Decade

We come to the end of a decade today. And I pray that we arelooking back with a proper mingling of great gratitude and deepcontrition. Contrition for our unbelief and sin, and gratitude forGod's all-surpassing grace.

Tomorrow we enter a new decade, the last decade of the lastcentury in this millennium, and O how I pray that we will enter itwith a proper mingling of deep contentment in the unspeakable,electing, predestining, calling, justifying, glorifying love of Godfor us in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:29–30)—a mingling of thatdeep contentment with a strong dissatisfaction. O that God mightgive us a great, holy dissatisfaction with the level of ourexperience of his fullness (Ephesians 3:19)!

And with that great desire burning in our hearts, we begin thedecade with a week of concerted prayer—the heartfeltexpression of holy dissatisfaction.

And I invite you—Iplead with you—to consecrate yourself to God in someextraordinary way as this new decade begins.

Tomorrow morning, asthe new decade begins, give notice to your old nature and to thedevil and to the world, by an act of holy consecration, that youbelong to God and that you desire all the fullness of God more thanyou desire anything in the world.

The Question Before Us

The question that God asks us in our text this morning is this:Are you living in the fullest enjoyment of God's YES to you inChrist Jesus? Or to put it another way: Have you said yes to all ofGod's YES to you? Is there any of God's YES to you to which you aresaying NO or MAYBE or NOT NOW? Let our consecration to God at thebeginning of the 1990s be this: This is the decade of my YES toyou, O God. I consecrate myself to forsake the NO and the MAYBE andthe NOT NOW of my unbelief. And I say YES to everything in your YESto me.

Let's look at the text together so that you can see this wordfrom the Lord the same way I do.

Was Paul's Heart Divided Toward the Corinthians?

According to verses 15–16 Paul had made a plan to visit Corinthtwice to give them a double blessing. He was going to cross theAegean Sea to Corinth on his way to Macedonia, and then come backby Corinth. This was his plan, and they heard about it.

But thensomething happened that made him change his mind (see 1:23 ff.).Evidently the rumor starts to circulate that Paul's heart isdivided. YES, he loves them and wants to see them and bless them.But NO, maybe not as much as he loves his own convenience or someother church.

Is Paul's heart YES and NO toward theCorinthians?

He answers passionately in verses 17–18: “Was I vacillating whenI wanted to do this? Do I make my plans a worldly man, readyto say Yes and No at once? As surely as God is faithful, our wordto you has not been Yes and No.”

In other words, our planning and our preaching are not fickle;they are not double minded; they are unified; they are YES to you.We live for your good. We are for you and not against you. Our lifeand ministry is a resounding YES, YES, YES! Yes to your joy! Yes toyour holiness! Yes to your faith and hope and love and peace andpower!

And then in verses 19 and 20 Paul shows why his own life is YESto the Corinthians: namely, because God has spoken his finaldecisive YES to them in Christ.

(19) For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we preached among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No; but in him it is always YES. [Literally: “The (decisive) YES has happened in him”—God's heart is not divided in Christ. Christ means YES!] (20a) For all the promises of God find their YES in him.

So Paul is saying: My heart is not divided toward you becauseGod's heart is not divided toward you.

If you belong to Christ byfaith, then everything God could possibly give you for your good hehas signed over to your account in Christ. You hear the same answerat every point: Is this promise in my account? Yes.

Is this promisein my account? Yes. Is this blessing in my account? Yes. Yes. Yes.Yes. All the promises of God are YES in Christ.

God's Heart Toward Those in Christ

In Galatians 3:29 Paul wrote, “If you are Christ's then you areAbraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.” (See Ephesians 3:6;Galatians 3:14, 22; Hebrews 9:15; Romans 15:8.) All the promises of God forthe good of his people focus in Christ. He confirms them andsecures them and, as it were, purchases them for all who belong tohim—for all who believe (Galatians 3:22).

Every sinner who comesto God in Christ, with all his needs, finds God coming to him inChrist, with all his promises. When a sinful person meets the holyGod IN CHRIST, what he hears is YES. Do you love me? YES. Will youforgive me? YES. Will you accept me? YES. YES. Will you help mechange? YES. Will you give me power to serve you? YES. Will youkeep me? YES. Will you show me your glory? YES.

All the promises of God—all the blessings of God in theheavenly places—are YES in Christ Jesus. Jesus is God'sdecisive YES to all who believe.

The Challenge and Connection to Prayer

Now comes the great challenge and the connection between allthis and prayer. Verse 20b: “That is why [or: therefore; so] weutter the Amen though him, to the glory of God [literally: to Godfor (his) glory].”

Verse 20b explains why the Christian church says “Amen.” It's aword taken over into Greek from Hebrew where it meant a very strongaffirmation (Numbers 5:22; Nehemiah 5:13; 8:6)—a formal, solemn,earnest “I agree,” or “I affirm what you just said,” or “This istrue.” Most simply AMEN means a very earnest YES in the context ofaddressing God.

Now notice the connection between the two halves of verse 20.The first half says, “For all the promises of God find their YES inhim.” The second half says, “That is why we utter the Amen throughhim, to God for his glory.

” When you realize that AMEN and YES meanthe same thing, here's what the verse means: In Jesus Christ Godsays his YES, his AMEN, to us through his promises; and in Christwe say our YES, our AMEN, back to God, through prayer.

Four Observations About Prayer

Notice four things about prayer in verse 20.

1. Prayer Is Through Jesus

Verse 20b: “That is why we utter theAMEN through him . . . ” God's YES comes to us in Christ accordingto verse 20a (“All the promises of God find their YES in him.

“) Soif God's YES comes to us in Christ, then prayer must go to Godthrough Christ, because nobody wants to hear a NO. Everybody wantsto hear a yes when they pray, and that is what we hear in Christ,and nowhere else.

This is what we mean when we say, “In Jesus'name,” at the end of our prayers.

2. Prayer Is for God's Glory

Verse 20b: “That is why we utterthe Amen though him, to God for [his] glory.” Amen is the greataffirmation that God is the Giver and we are the needy. Amenaffirms God's grace and goodness and power and wisdom to respond inthe very best way for his glory and for our good. All prayer shouldhave the glory of God as its chief aim. Amen is our YES to theglory of God.

3. Prayer Is Laying Hold onto Promises

Prayer is drawing on theaccount where God has deposited all hispromises. Prayer is nothoping in the dark that there might be a God of good intentions outthere. Prayer goes to the bank and draws on promises.

Don't missthe connection between the two halves of the verse: “All thepromises of God find their YES in him. THAT [because of thepromises!] is why we utter the Amen through him, to God for hisglory.

” Which leads to . . .

4. AMEN Is a Full and Precious Word in Times of Prayer

Itdoesn't mean primarily, “YES, I have said all this prayer.” Itmeans primarily, “YES, God has made all these promises.” AMENmeans, YES, Lord, you can do it. It means, YES, Lord, you arepowerful.

YES, Lord, you are wise. YES, Lord, you are merciful.AMEN is an exclamation point of faith in a prayer for help. Oran exclamation point of strong affirmation after a statement ofGod's greatness.

As you come to the end of every prayer there are two AMEN's, twoYES's. When you say, “In Jesus' name,” that is God's AMEN. All hispromises are YES and AMEN in Jesus: Jesus Christ is God's YES andAMEN at the end of your prayer. Then when you say, “AMEN,” this isyour YES and AMEN back to God for his. AMEN is our YES to God forhis YES to us in Jesus Christ.

Have You Said Yes to All of God's Yes to You?

Which brings us back to the question we raised at the beginning:Are you living in the fullest enjoyment of God's YES to you inChrist Jesus? Have you said YES to all of God's YES to you? Isthere any of God's YES to you to which you are saying NO or MAYBEor NOT NOW?

I plead with you to let your consecration to God at thebeginning of the 1990s be this: “O Lord, I promise that by yourgrace this will be the decade of my YES to you.

I consecrate myselfto forsake the NO and the MAYBE and the NOT NOW of my unbelief. AndI say YES to everything in your YES to me.

I pledge myself to aholy dissatisfaction until I have known the fullness of your YES inChrist Jesus.”

We begin the decade with a week of prayer. Let me mention thetimes for you to consider.

  1. Starting tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM we will pray each morning Monday through Friday at 7:00 AM in the chapel for 30 minutes. You can consecrate every day of the first week of the decade with united prayer.
  2. On Wednesday evening at 7:00 we will meet for an hour and a half in a concert of prayer focusing on the spiritual and social needs of our city and the cities of the world. Here in this room. You can consecrate yourself in this way to a larger vision than just your own personal needs.
  3. On Friday at 10:00 PM we begin a powerful night of going hard after God in prayer for eight hours. I believe much of the blessing we have known over the past ten years together is owing to God's calling us to nights of prayer and meeting us there in significant ways.
  4. The Fireside Room will be set up for Personal Prayer Retreats. You can get into the church and use the room Tuesday through Saturday from 7 AM to 9 PM.
  5. Finally, we have ordered 150 copies of Ablaze for God. I hope we sell them all (they are $7.00). We chose this because it does just that: it makes the heart blaze with a passion for prayer. Consecrate your mind to God with a time of reading about prayer and power this week and in the weeks to come.

Would you pray for the pastoral and ministerial staff as we takea three-day retreat for prayer and fasting and planning Tuesdaythrough Thursday? We will come in for the Wednesday evening Concertof Prayer, but besides that, we will be in prayer and study andplanning all that time. We are seeking from the Lord focus andgoals for the 1990s. It is utterly crucial that you cover us withyour prayer all day. We really want to meet God, and seek his heartfor our church and our mission in this city and the world for thenext ten years.

I close with the question once more: Are you living in thefullest enjoyment of God's YES to you in Christ Jesus? Have yousaid YES and AMEN to all the promises of God? Would you join us inthe first week of the last decade of the last century of themillennium for an extraordinary time of consecration as we say YESto all God's promises in prayer?

Prayers for Peace

Prayer For God’s Promise Of Peace

Lord Jesus, we adore your cross which frees us from sin, the origin of every division and evil; we proclaim your resurrection, which ransoms man from the slavery of failure and death; we await your coming in glory,

which will bring to fulfillment your kingdom of justice, joy and peace.

Lord Jesus, by your glorious passion, conquer the hardness of our hearts, imprisoned by hatred and selfishness; by the power of your resurrection, save the victims of injustice and maltreatment from their suffering; by the fidelity of your coming,

confound the culture of death and make the triumph of life shine forth.

Lord Jesus, unite to your cross the sufferings of the many innocent victims: the children, the elderly, and the persecuted Christians; envelop in paschal light those who are deeply wounded: abused persons, deprived of freedom and dignity;

let those who live in uncertainty experience the enduring constancy of yourkingdom: the exiles, refugees, and those who have lost the joy of living.

Lord Jesus,cast forth the shadow of your cross over peoples at war; may they learn the way of reconciliation, dialogue and forgiveness; let the peoples so wearied by bombing experience the joy of your resurrection: raise up Iraq and Syria from devastation; reunite your dispersed children under your gentle kingship:

sustain Christians in the Diaspora and grant them the unity of faith and love.

O VirginMary, Queen of peace, you who stood at the foot of the cross, obtain from your Son pardon for our sins; you who never doubted the victory of his resurrection, sustain our faith and our hope; you who are enthroned as Queen in glory,

teach us the royal road of service and the glory of love.


Pope Francis' Prayer for Peace (June 4, 2014)

Lord God ofpeace, hear our prayer!

We havetried so many times and over so many years to resolve our conflicts by our ownpowers and by the force of our arms. How many moments of hostility and darknesshave we experienced; how much blood has been shed; how many lives have beenshattered; how many hopes have been buried… But our efforts have been in vain.

Now, Lord,come to our aid! Grant us peace, teach us peace; guide our steps in the way ofpeace. Open our eyes and our hearts, and give us the courage to say: “Neveragain war!”; “With war everything is lost”. Instill in our hearts the courageto take concrete steps to achieve peace.

Lord, God ofAbraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us tolive as brothers and sisters.

Give us the strength daily to be instruments ofpeace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister.

Make us sensitive to the plea of our citizens who entreat us to turn ourweapons of war into implements of peace, our trepidation into confident trust,and our quarreling into forgiveness.

Keep alivewithin us the flame of hope, so that with patience and perseverance we may optfor dialogue and reconciliation.

In this way may peace triumph at last, and maythe words “division”, “hatred” and “war” be banished from the heart of everyman and woman. Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands.

Renewour hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be”brother”, and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!


Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI for the World Day of Peace (Jan. 1, 2007)

Tothe Queen of Peace, the Mother of Jesus Christ “our peace” (Eph 2:14), Ientrust my urgent prayer for all humanity at the beginning of the year .. .

to which we look with hearts full of hope, notwithstanding thedangers and difficulties that surround us.

May Mary show us, in her Son,the Way of peace, and enlighten our vision, so that we can recognizeChrist's face in the face of every human person, the heart of peace!

Pope John Paul II

O God, Creator of the universe, who extends your paternal concern over every creature and guides the events of history to the goal of salvation, we acknowledge your fatherly love when you break the resistance of mankind and, in a world torn by strife and discord, you make us ready for reconciliation.

Renew for us the wonders of your mercy; send forth your Spirit that he may work in the intimacy of hearts, that enemies may begin to dialogue, that adversaries may shake hands and peoples may encounter one another in harmony.

May all commit themselves to the sincere search for true peace which will extinguish all arguments, for charity which overcomes hatred, for pardon which disarms revenge. 

Prayer of Pope John Paul II for the World Day of Peace (Jan. 1, 2002)

“Salve, Madre santa!”Virgin Daughter of Zion,how deeply must your Mother's heart suffer for this bloodshed! The child you embrace has a name that is dear to the peoples of biblical religion: “Jesus,” which means “God saves.” So the Archangel named him before he was conceived in your womb (cf. Lk 2,21).

In the face of the newborn Messiah, we recognize the face of all your children, who suffer from being despised and exploited. We recognize especially the faces of your children, to whatever race, nation or culture they may belong.

For them, O Mary, for their future, we ask you to move hearts hardened by hatred so that they may open to love and so that revenge may finally give way to forgiveness.

Obtain for us, O Mother, that the truth of this affirmation — No peace without justice, no justice without forgiveness — be engraved on every heart.

Thus the human family will be able to find the true peace, that flows from the union of justice and mercy.

Holy Mother, Mother of the Prince of Peace, help us!

Mother of Humanity and Queen of Peace, pray for us!

Blessed John XXIII

Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, “Peace to you,” grant us peace. Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love.

Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace. Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace. May all peoples of the earth becomes as brothers and sisters.

May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.

Pope Leo XIII

O Lord, you see how everywhere the winds have burst forth, and the sea is convulsed with the great violence of the rising waves. Command, we beseech you who alone are able, both the winds and the sea.

Restore to mankind the true peace of your name, that peace which the world cannot give, and the calm of social harmony.

Under your favor and inspiration may men return to due order, and having overthrown the rule of greed, bring back again as ought to be, the love of God, justice, charity toward neighbor, temperance in all desires. May your kingdom come.

May all recognize that they are subject to you, and must serve you who are truth and salvation; that without you they labor in vain. In your law is reason and fatherly kindness. You are ever at hand with your strength and your copious power to help man to keep it. Life upon earth is a warfare, but you watch the contest and aim man to conquer. The weak you sustain; the victor you crown.

Saint John of the Cross

O blessed Jesus, give me stillness of soul in You. Let your mighty calmness reign in me. Rule me, O King of Gentleness, King of Peace.

Alcuin of York

Christ, why do you allow wars and massacres on earth? By what mysterious judgment do you allow innocent people to be cruelly slaughtered? I cannot know.

I can only find assurance in the promise that your people will find peace in heaven, where no one makes war.

As gold is purified by fire, so you purify souls by these bodily tribulations, making them ready to be received above the stars in your heavenly home.

Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;Where there is hatred, let me sow charity;Where there is injury, pardon;Where there is error, the truth;Where there is doubt, the faith;Where there is despair, hope;Where there is darkness, light; andWhere there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master,Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;To be understood as to understand;To be loved as to love;For it is in giving that we receive;It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying to ourselves that we are born to eternal life.
