Prayer For God’s Promise Of Peace

GREAT PROMISES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT by Francis Dixon

(Key verse: Isaiah 26:3)

This promise was given by God in the darkest period of Israel’s history, yet it will be a great help to us now when we are surrounded by much gloom and depression, constantly threatened with the three enemies of doubt, fear and worry.

When all is going well it’s easy to read a promise this in a superficial way, but when disappointment and trial comes these words become precious. There is no promise in the Bible to suggest that here on earth we shall ever experience freedom from trouble, war, trial, temptation, anguish, loss etc.

, but something far better is promised: it is the promise of perfect peace in the midst of all these.

Of what value would freedom from these troubles be if we had no inward peace? Yet it’s possible in the fiercest battle for the trusting soul to experience a deep-down calm, an inward peace and a quiet confidence –- look up Isaiah 30:15. Do you long to experience perfect peace?
 

1. NOTICE WHAT THIS BLESSING IS THAT IS OFFERED TO US

It is described as ““perfect peace””, but can we define that? Yes, it is a condition of freedom from disturbance; it is perfect harmony reigning within us. The Hebrew word ‘‘shalom’’ has in it the idea of soundness of health, so that to be filled with perfect peace is to be spiritually healthy and free from discord within our souls.

There can be no room for jealousy, envy, uncontrolled temper, selfishness, pride, intolerance, harsh criticism, fear or anxiety in the soul that is filled with peace; all these things are disturbing factors in our hearts and discordant notes. The peace which God offers and which by His grace we may experience is very practical. It is a great calm which He commands (Mark 4:39).

God calls His peace ““perfect peace””. In what sense is it perfect?

  1. 1. It is perfect in its quality. That is to say, it is perfect in the kind of peace it is. There is an imperfect peace; there is the imperfect peace of ignorance when we imagine that all is going well, whereas in fact all is not well (Jeremiah 6:14). There is the imperfect peace of stagnation. The pool of water may be calm and peaceful but underneath it is foul and green with slime. Many men and women know only a peace that, and one day the shock of God’’s judgment will stir up their pool and they will find that they have no real peace at all (Isaiah 57:14). Then there is the imperfect peace of dependence, which is a peace dependent upon some thing or some person in this world. The ‘‘thing’’ may fail, the ‘person’ may die –- and where then is their peace? In contrast, God’’s peace is perfect.
  2. 2. It is perfect in its quantity. That is to say, the supply of it is sufficient and it exactly meets our need. The marginal rendering of ““perfect peace”” is ““peace, peace”” –- that is double peace. Notice the significance of this in Philippians 4:7 where we read that this double peace is the peace of heart and of mind; and that is the kind of peace we need, a peace that garrisons our mind and calms our heart. It is also double peace in the sense that it is peace with God (Romans 5:1) and the peace of God (Philippians 4:7), and we can never know the peace of God until we know peace with God.
  3. 3. It is perfect in its constancy. It is permanent and not intermittent. The promise says, “”You will keep…”” –- compare Psalm 121:4.

2. HOW DOES THIS PERFECT PEACE COME TO US?

  1. 1. By Christ Jesus. In Philippians 4:7 we read that the Lord Jesus Christ is the source from whom God’’s peace flows into our souls.

    It is the possession of the Christian alone; there is no peace for anyone who does not possess Christ and who is not resting on the finished work of Christ for salvation, thereby ““making peace through his blood, shed on the cross””. Read Colossians 1:19-20.

  2. 2. By the Holy Spirit.

    The Lord Jesus Christ procured peace on the Cross of Calvary and it is offered to us by Him as the source; but it is conveyed to our hearts and minds by the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22). As the Holy Spirit fills and floods our lives, so He produces this fruit within us.

  3. 3. By His Word.

    Have you ever noticed the great promise made in Psalm 119:165? A better rendering of ‘’stumble’’ is ‘‘disturb’’. How often things and people disturb us! But here is a promise of perfect peace to those people who love, meditate in and obey the Word of God.

  4. 4. By our obedience.

    Please look up Leviticus 26:3-6 and be sure to notice that the most important word here is the word ‘‘If’’’. God guarantees to us that if we will do our part He will surely do His part.

  5. 5. By plenty of prayer and praise. Notice that the promise of Philippians 4:7 is preceded by the conditions mentioned in verse 6.

3. TWO CONDITIONS MUST BE MET IF WE WOULD EXPERIENCE PERFECT PEACE

Who will God keep in perfect peace? The one ““whose mind is steadfast”” and the one who ““trusts””.

Both these expressions denote faith but one is a head word and the other is a heart word.

What is the difference? With the head we believe that God is the author and giver of peace and that He is able and willing to give it; and with the heart we trust Him to do it, so receive it by faith.

Isaiah 26:3 begins with God and ends with God; it begins with ““you”” and ends with ““you””, and the trusting soul goes in between. Perfect peace is the Lord Himself within us –- not an experience, a doctrine, an ‘’it’’, a code of belief –- but the Lord Himself!

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

A Prayer for Peace in Hard Times

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. ~ Lysa Terkeurst

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

Five Promises for Your Bible Reading and Prayer

Prayer For God’s Promise Of Peace

Do you consistently seek God in the word and prayer? Or have you tried again and again, become discouraged, and given up?

We are deep enough into January that this is the story for many us. Resolutions have begun to stall. And even if you do get time with God, is it life-giving? Or is it just going through the motions, reading an assigned passage, praying through your list, and being relieved when it’s over?

It’s not too late to make some good changes. So, if you are struggling to spend time with God, here are five promises that can help:

1. God is my exceeding joy

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me. . . . Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy. (Psalm 43:3–4)

God promises to be your exceeding joy, not because of what he gives, but because of who he is. When we behold and worship him, we have infinitely more joy than we have in anything else.

So, why would we rather sleep in than seek God? It’s because we’re not trusting that God is our exceeding joy. So, what can we do?

“Not seeking God because your faith feels weak is not going to the doctor because your body feels sick.” Don’t just grit your teeth and try harder. Do what the psalmist says: ask God to send you his light (the heart-enlightening work of the Spirit) and his truth (the word of God). Then pray over promises describing God as your joy, Psalm 43:3–4, Psalm 16:11, Matthew 13:44, and 1 Peter 1:8.

As you do, God will send his light and truth so you see and feel that he really is your exceeding joy. Then, when you see that infinite joy is found in him, you’ll want to spend time with him.

2. Hearing God’s word will increase my faith

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17)

Many mornings I’m tempted not to seek God because my faith feels weak. But that’s not going to the doctor because my body feels sick. Just doctors heal sick bodies, so God strengthens weak faith, as we hear his word.

Weak faith is a weak battery. But God’s word is a battery charger. So, when your faith is weak, open his word and plug in your weak faith. God promises that, as you do that, he will recharge you.

3. God’s word is the only perfect source of guidance

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105)

The world is a pitch-black cave in which we can’t see anything. But God has given us the high-powered flashlight of his word.

So, if we head into our day without pondering God’s word, it’s stumbling through a cave without turning on the flashlight.

But starting the day in God’s word is turning on the flashlight, so we can see the crevice to avoid, the rock to duck under, the turn we want to take. Don’t head into your day without turning on the flashlight.

4. When I pray, God will answer

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7)

One reason we don’t pray is because we believe Satan’s lie that prayer does nothing. But that’s not what Jesus taught (Matthew 7:7).

Jesus promises that every time we pray, God will answer. He will either do exactly what we ask, or something even better, which he would not have done had we not prayed.

So, if I start the day praying about my heart, marriage, children, work, and ministry, then God will do things in my heart, marriage, children, work, and ministry that he would not have done had I not prayed. Trust Jesus’s promise about prayer — and pray.

5. This is the one thing which will not be taken away

“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41–42)

Martha had busied herself in the kitchen, while Mary sat at Jesus’s feet, listening to his word. And Jesus said Mary had made the right choice, because she had chosen the one thing which could not be taken from her.

“When we would rather sleep in than seek God, we’re not trusting that God is our exceeding joy.”

Everything else can be taken from you. But time with Jesus will never be taken from you, because the heart you nurture for Jesus now will bring you increased joy in him forever. And ever. And ever.

So, if you haven’t spent time with God, and you are tempted with the newspaper, , or a phone call, stop. Ask yourself: What will bring me joy that will never be taken away?

Then set everything else aside to join Mary at Jesus’s feet, listening to his word.

Tomorrow Morning

The alarm goes off.

I’m tired. Maybe just a little more sleep. But wait. . . .

  • God is inviting me to exceeding joy.
  • His word will strengthen my weak faith.
  • His word will shine light on the darkness around me.
  • When I pray, God will work.
  • This is the one thing that can’t be taken from me.

I think I’ll get up.

My Father,

You know the stress points in my life. One by one I hand them over to you. I lay them at your feet, knowing that you care for me even more than I care for myself. I give you all my fears, anxieties, pain, sin, burdens, and worries.

I surrender all of that to you.

And I receive from you, Prince of Peace, the quiet fortitude of your Holy Spirit, the peace that stays calm even in the battle, the confidence that doesn’t diminish when everything around me shakes profusely.

Please cleanse me of all negative emotions towards others. Forgive me for jealousy, covetousness, envy, and anger. Help me to rejoice with those who rejoice. And then please, Lord, grow me up to maturity.

Renew my mind in your Holy Word, and give me your great joy. As I walk in your love, I know the level of Peace will grow in my heart and expand and spill over to others.

That peace will be a source of health to my body, and for that, I thank you in advance.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Prayer for Anxious People

“Father, I pray for (name one or more) and others in my circle of family and friends who are carrying heavy loads… Your Word says an anxious heart weighs a person down, and this is how I think they must feel—as if they’re carrying heavy loads, more than they can bear.

When they feel upset and beside themselves, calm them down and comfort them with the assurance of Your love. Help them not be overwhelmed by anxious thoughts.

(Proverbs 12:25a; Psalm 94:19) Our hearts are not supposed to be troubled; but that’s their struggle—help them trust

You and the Lord Jesus, as I know they must.

Help them understand that You are the One who makes a way when things seem impossible; nothing is too hard for You! (John 14:27; Isaiah 43:19; Jeremiah 32:17; Luke 1:37) Help them be faithful to You and to the way You want them to live, for You guard the lives of those who are faithful; You protect them and never turn away from them. Help them know You as their fortress, as the rock in whom they take refuge, as One who is good, whose love endures forever, whose faithfulness continues through all generations. (Psalm 97:10; Proverbs 2:8; Psalm 37:28; 94:22; 100:5)

In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Lord, I am frazzled. My hands are full and my mind is reeling with all the things I have to do. Please help me to accomplish all that needs to get done each day and to find rest. As I work, help me to be productive and peaceful. As I love others, help me to be calm and encouraging. I need your peace in every area of my life today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Lord, it feels there’s so much to accomplish each day, and sometimes it’s hard to rest. I’m afraid I won’t get it all done. I’m afraid I will fail. Yet you promise to strengthen me.

You are the mighty God! Help me to focus on what you can do, not what I cannot. Empower and encourage me. Give me the lasting strength only you can give. Replenish me so I can live life better and stronger.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:13

Prayer for Comfort and Strength

(a prayer for those in a difficult or stressful place)

Lord,Lead me into the valley of your protection.

May I feel safe and secure sheltered there.

Lead me to drink from streams of life.
May I find hope and healing in the waters.

Lead me to fields of green meadows.
May I rest in quiet places on the softness of your grass.

Lead me into the light of your eternal truth.
May I bathe in the promise of heaven.

Amen.

Getting My Priorities in Order

Lord, I have my agenda, but what do you want done today? Help me to prioritize all that needs to get done. In the midst of life’s busyness, help me to be centered on what’s truly important and not always get caught up in the urgent. Help me to put you first, for I know that from my replenishing time with you all else flows. I will seek you first. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Matthew 6:33

Lord, I am so grateful for rest. It was your idea in the first place! Instead of tossing and turning at night with eyes wide open, I give you my worries and cares, my lists and schedules. With open hands, help me to release all I cling to so tightly. I need rest for my spirit and my body. Let me live from a calm and grounded center as I come to you each day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.

for civilian women, children and men whose lives are disfigured by war or terror,

calling to mind in penitence the anger and hatreds of humanity;

May God give peace

God give peace

for peace-makers and peace-keepers,

who seek to keep this world secure and free;

May God give peace

God give peace

for all who bear the burden and privilege of leadership,

political, military and religious;

asking for gifts of wisdom and resolve in the search for

reconciliation and peace.

May God give peace

God give peace

O God of truth and justice,

we hold before you those whose memory we cherish,

and those whose names we will never know.

Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world,

and grant us the grace to pray for those who wish us harm.

As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future;

for you are the source of life and hope,

now and for ever.  Amen.
