Prince of Peace

Prince of Peace
by Judy Hitson

Is. 9:6 NKJV For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

The most profound memory of God ministering to me as Prince of Peace was when I first heard the hymn, Wonderful Peace by Warren D. Cornell, 1889. A precious sister and friend in Christ, Ruth Dowler, sang this song and it went deep within my being by the Spirit of God. The anointing of the Holy Spirit was upon her. As she sang, it brought me to tears. The lyrics assured me of God’s peace with us.

While Ruth was with us in our small women’s group gathered for Christian Writers Circle, we often asked her to lead us to sing, Wonderful Peace. Ruth is now Home with the Lord but passed on to us her anointing. To this day there are times we sing this wonderful hymn of God’s peace. We think of Ruth and at times sense her presence from the great cloud of witnesses, Heb. 12:1.

There are many other ways the Prince of Peace ministers to us. Perhaps you have a testimony of your own to share with others. I encourage you to do so.

May the following verses from NKJV on peace bless you as they have blessed me:

 John 14:27a Jesus said, Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives….
 John 16:33a,c Jesus said, ….in Me you may have peace….. I have overcome the world.
Acts 10:36b ……preaching peace through Jesus Christ-He is Lord of all.
Rom. 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
Rom. 16:20a And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly…
1 Cor.14:33a For God is not the author of confusion but of peace….
Phil. 4:9 The things that you learned and received and heard and saw in me, those do and the God of         peace will be with you. 
1 Thess. 5:23a May the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely….
Heb. 13:20a Now may the God of peace…..:21a make you complete….

Prayer: Thank You Father in Jesus name for Your peace that surpasses all understanding to guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus as we refuse anxiety, pray with thanksgiving and let our requests known to You God. Amen. (Phil. 4:6-7)


  1. His peace! His wonderful peace!

    • Amen! Thank you, Rozelle, for reading our blog.,

  2. God bless you Judy. Just this morning I recalled the award winning painting of peace depicted with a mama bird covering baby birds with her wings in the cleft of a rock during a storm. Jesus is our peace in the storm.

    • God bless you Eileen. Thanks for reading our blog and sharing about the painting and that Jesus is our peace in the storm.
