Nancy's Notes 

birdThe Words Grace and Peacebird

When Paul used the words, grace and peace, charis and eirene, he was taking the normal greeting phrases of two great nations and molding them into one.

Charis - a Greek greeting

Eirene - a Hebrew greeting

So, when Paul prays for grace and peace on his people he is praying that they should know the joy of knowing God as Father, and the peace of being reconciled to God to men, and to themselves-and that grace and peace can only come through Jesus Christ.
