Praying for peace entails believing that peace begins with you, and aligning yourself with peacefulness.

Peace is understood in the Christian tradition as “tranquillitas ordinis”, the quietness of order, the calm that comes with harmony.

And order is arranging things so that each gives to the other its proper place.

Even God must do this.

In the Jewish tradition it is said that, in order to create the world, God had to step back.

David Steindal Rast
