Dear God, so much in going on in my life that I don’t know which way to turn and I come to you – broken in spirit to ask You to calm my inner turmoil. I have tried to sort things out in my own way, but it is all futile – and in my poverty I come before You Lord and submit to You – asking You to grant me peace of mind and a quieting to my soul.
Please give me Your peace and Your strength. I know that without You I can do nothing but I also know that Your peace is poured into the hearts of those that trust in You with all their hearts – Lord I trust You now and give my life and future into Your hands,
Thank You God
Thank You for Your calming peace, Lord, in the midst of what often are troubled seas. Go before me today, I pray.
Father You have called me to be still before You, to rest in Your love and to patiently bear the cross that is set before me, knowing that You are not only at my side every moment of the day - but dwelling deep within my heart.
Help me to depend on You in all things, knowing that nights of sadness will soon be turned into mornings of joy - when You are by my side. Keep me from fretful thoughts and foolish imaginings, knowing that You are my best and heavenly Friend, my Shepherd, my Provider, my Defender – and the Rock of my salvation.
Draw me every closer to Your heart of love.. quiet my spirit, still my soul and instil in my inner being Your perfect peace that passes all understanding and help me I pray, to be still and know that You are God – my God in Whom I trust, in Jesus name I pray,
Times are hard Lord Jesus and my soul is getting troubled and afraid – and yet I know You told us NEVER to be dismayed or troubled. Keep me I pray from thoughts that vex my mind, for I know Lord that they are destructive to my soul and serve so positive purpose.
Lord Jesus I know that only You can bring true peace to our troubles hearts. Thank You for the precious gift of peace that You have promised to Your children. Your peace is so different from what the world has to offer - You have promised that You will keep all in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.. Keep the eyes of my heart firmly fixed on my Lord Jesus.
I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, my Saviour
Heavenly Father as we read the newspapers and watch the breaking news headlines on our TV screens, we recognise that troublesome times are here and men’s hearts are failing for fear of what is taking place in the world.
Lord I know that unless my hope is in You I too will find that worldwide events that are currently taking place will cause me to faint from fear. Keep my heart fixed on You I pray and keep me looking to You each moment of the day and help me to trust implicitly in Your Word.
Overshadow me and all those I love with Your love and grace and draw each one of us into an ever deepening relationship with Yourself and a ever deepening desire to know You more and to serve You better with each passing day – This I ask in the preious name of Jesus,
Heavenly Father, as turmoil and terror throughout the globe seems to increase with every passing day, as the world’s hatred of You increases and as man’s animosity towards Your children continues to grow, we long for that promised time of peace on earth ..that will only come when the Prince of peace Himself sets up His millennial rule in Jerusalem.
Forgive us Lord, for we have strayed so far from Your righteous laws and have discredited Your perfect statutes and glorious commandments, in a world that is calling evil good and good evil – and there is no health in us.
Help us to continue to demonstrate Your love and grace towards all with whom we come in contact, and look down in pity on all who are lost and blinded by the lies and deceit of the evil one.
Give wisdom and discernment to all Your children as we travel through this hurting world, and may Your peace that passes understanding flood the hearts and minds of all Christians – and equip us all to share the good news of the glorious gospel of grace.. to all who are searching for a ‘peace’ that only comes from You, in Jesus name we pray,
Father, You are great and mighty and worthy to be praised for You have promised to carry me, to sustain me and to hold me steady even into my old age. Thank You that in You there is nothing in life for about which I need be concerned - for I am safe in Your hands.. knowing that You will uphold me with Your righteous right hand.
Speak Your perfect peace into my heart, I pray, in the midst of the troublesome circumstances in which I find myself, and keep me resting in Your love and abiding in Your precious peace - in the strong assurance that You are mighty to save in every season of life.
Thank You for the thrill of childhood, the experience of youth and the lessons of adulthood – and now as I face the twilight years of my life, I thank You Father for Your never failing promises and Your ever present sustaining power.
Flood my mind with Your peace I pray and enable me to sleep at night in tranquillity of heart, knowing that the angel of Your presence is with me throughout the hours of darkness. Praise the Lord O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name, in Jesus name I pray,
Lord, it is difficult to find that “closet” where I can commune with You in unhurried, uncluttered quiet. Calm me now as I seek that peaceful meditation.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You that You are the Prince of Peace. Thanks You that You not only calmed the raging storms on the sea, two thousand years ago, but that You are still able to calm the stresses and distresses within my heart, and I praise and thank You that You have taken up residency within my life, in the person of the Holy Spirit.
Thank You that my life has been exchanged for Your life, and that my sinful unrighteousness has been replaced with Your perfect righteousness. Thank You that I not only have peace with God through the forgiveness of sins through the blood of Jesus Christ, but that I have Your promise of an abiding peace, within my heart.. when my mind is stayed upon You.
Keep me I pray from being overwhelmed by the ragings of the world and the tempestuous storms of life, and help me at all times to abide in Your love and to cast all my problems and cares upon You.
Thank You that You have overcome the world and that I may rest securely in You, knowing I have not been given the spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. May Your name be glorified in my life - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
Lord, help me to really know Your love for me, that any fear I may have will disappear. Thank You for Your peace which surpasses comprehension.
O God, today I begin an experiment in seeking peace. You have so much to say about peace in the Bible that I know it is your will for all men to be at peace.
In knowing Your will, O God, I am encouraged to press through all opposition that your will might be fulfilled in me.
Help me, I pray, to stop excusing my attitudes and actions I alone am responsible for what I do today.
Help me to discount the contrary influences of yesterday while I live to the fullest measure the today Thou hast given. Help me not to be anxious about tomorrow but to be assured that by living my today within the will of God, tomorrow shall be even better than today.
I do now commit myself to Thee, trusting Thee for the needs of today.
Father, I’m thankful that You always act like Yourself—with grace and justice. Your constancy produces great peace within me.
