Prayer to calm anxiety

(a prayer to receive God’s peace during a stressful situation)

Dear Lord,

I confess I wake with a worried heart, I carry anxious thoughts which wind round and round my mind each day, and I lay down to sleep with these concerns all about me.

I need you, Lord lead me into new peace. I give you these burdens, these cares, these sorrows. I lay them at your feet. I ask that you might take them from me, that I would know that you are Lord over all these things. There is nothing I need hide from you and there is nothing that you would have me hold.

Father, I choose to do this each morning, each day and each evening, knowing that when I am weak all is well, because your strength is made perfect in my weakness. Thank you for your peace that resides in my soul now.

In you I trust.

Prayer for Peace

Prayer for Inner Peace

O God

I focus on Your resurrection love
Like a soft bed of grace,
I choose to lie down here.

I feel the peace
You have sown into my heart,
I choose to linger here.

I drink in Your eternal love
Thank you I am clothed forgiveness.
I choose always, to live here.

Prayer For Quiet Confidence

O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and in confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou art God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
