I have the opportunity, once more to right some wrongs, to pray for peace, to plant some trees, and sing more joyful songs. -William Arthur Ward tweet

It is important to pray for peace. . . But you must also take actions to make that happen. Every single day. tweet

The world wants to steal your peace. Your mind wants to steal your peace. But, don’t worry because prayer has the effects on mental health. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” John 14:27

Prayers for Peace of Mind and Heart

A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are rottenness of the bones. (Amplified Translation)

These prayers for peace of mind asks god to relieve anxiety and stress, and grant a clarity of mind to feel at ease in one’s life. Say it in the morning or evening on a daily basis until you feel at peace.

Also, one of the best prayers for anxiety is the famous Acceptance Prayer. If you’re not familiar with this prayer, I highly recommend it.

Life can easily spiral control, but not when prayer becomes a priority. – Jackie M. Johnson tweet

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 to Heal Stress

Heavenly Father, please grant me peace of mind and calm my troubled heart. My soul is a turbulent sea. I can’t seem to find my balance so I stumble and worry constantly.

Give me the strength and clarity of mind to find my purpose and walk the path you’ve laid out for me. I trust your Love God, and know that you will heal this stress. Just as the sun rises each day against the dark of night.

Please bring me clarity with the light of God.

In your name I pray, Amen.

Prayer for Peace and Healing

I meditate on you O Lord.For you have borne the pain,You have lived the trauma,

You have tasted shame.

I meditate on you O Lord.For you have beaten death,You have covered everything

With gentle loving breath.

I meditate on you O Lord.For you’re the promise bright,You’re the hope of healing hands,

You’re the brightest light.

I meditate on you O Lord.Come meet me in my fears,Touch me with your wings of love,

And lift my heart of tears.

I meditate on you O Lord.My saviour and my friend,My comforter, my one and all,

On you I will depend.

A Prayer for Health

A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body;
jealousy is cancer in the bones. (Proverbs. 14:30 NLT)

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.

I surrender myself to your leadership, Your Lordship. I love You, Father, and I thank you for your Spirit living and abiding in me. Thank you that I have the power that Jesus has promised to withstand every trial, temptation, and test.

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.

Matthew 11:28–30

Prayers for World Peace

Compassionate God and Father of all,we are horrified at violencein so many parts of the world.

It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified.

Hold back the hands that kill and maim;turn around the hearts that hate.Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace –peace that passes our understandingbut changes lives,through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen

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.

In Perfect Peace {Day 4}

Prayer To Rest In You Perfect Peace

Good morning, Ladies! first of all I need to apologize for this being posted so late this morning.

I’ve had company for the last two weeks and eventually all those things I had pushed aside in favor of spending time with family and friends caught up with me and I just couldn’t keep up.

I had so many deadlines that had to be met yesterday and we were at the ice rink all day. I did manage to get some things finished on time, but I did not get today’s video made and I’m sorry.

I will add it to this post when it’s finished and uploaded if want to check back later today or this evening. In the meantime, you can read today’s devotion and listen to the podcast. I hope you had a great day yesterday – let me know how things are going!

From Chaos to Calm eBook

If you’ve been struggling with your home, your marriage, your children, or just life in general this might be the answer you have been waiting for! Inside the pages of this ebook you will spend 15 weeks working toward a goal for:

– peace in the heart– peace in the home

– peace with our husbands
– peace with our children

From Chaos to Calm:  Day Four

 In Perfect Peace

Scripture Memory: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee.” Isaiah 26:3

     So, have you been able to set your alarm and get up each morning with a smile on your face? If you have a day where you do not reach your goal, do not fret – realize that tomorrow is a new day and that you can start all over. Remember, too, that it takes about a month before you commit an activity to a routine or habit. It will get easier!

     Today I want you to think about peace. What does peace mean to you? It is so important to have peace in your home. If your husband comes home each evening to peace, he will look forward to coming home. If your children live in a peaceful environment, they will grow up to care for the feelings and needs of others rather than be anxious and unsure of themselves.

    How do we attain perfect peace? The Bible says we will have peace from God if our thoughts dwell on the things of God. Our hearts will be transformed.

This is why having your morning devotion is so important! It sets the tone for the rest of the day. If you begin your day consumed by the Word of God, your heart will have been recharged or nourished by the bread of life.

Your emotions will not be running on an empty tank.

    If you already feel your heart reserves have been running on low for quite some time – you need to fall on your knees before the Lord and pour out your heart to Him.

Let the tears flow! Cry out to Him – out loud! He is there for you, always waiting for you. It is okay to tell him you feel lousy and that you know you messed everything up and that you are desperate for His help.

ASK him for that perfect peace.

Your homework the first day of this challenge was to set your alarm and wake up early for prayer and devotion. Your second goal was to wake up with a smile on your face and a determination to choose joy regardless of how disappointing life can sometimes be. Today, your homework is to create a Prayer Journal, or a Victory Journal, or a Faith Book.

    This journal can be any size, shape, or style that you choose. You can select a 3 ring binder or a standard notebook or it could be a pretty blank book – whatever suits your fancy. You might want to decorate the outside of the book. Whatever you use, find something. Place the book in your chosen prayer corner with a nice pen or sharpened pencil.

Inside, I want you to record the Scripture Memory verses we have each day of this challenge. When you have your devotion tomorrow morning, get out your book and write down your prayer to God. Date it. Do not hold anything back.

Write out all of your concerns, petitions, and praises to Him who created you. As you study God’s Word and find a verse that speaks to you – put it in your journal. When you have special moments happen in your life or even sad events – put them in your journal.

When you see an answer to your prayers – put it in your journal and date it!

     Once you have had your prayer and devotion each morning, take it with you – dwell on the Scriptures your read or the lessons your learned as you go about your day. He will keep you in perfect peace!

Tonight, remember to set your alarm, wake up with a smile, and pour out your heart and soul to God. He loves you so much and always has a listening ear!

5 Powerful Prayers for Peace Within

Prayer To Rest In You Perfect 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
