Prayer for Peace

Almighty Father, we come before You on this wonderful day to pray that You ease our worried minds. Lord, most of the time we are still awake late at night thinking about the “what-if” and “what could be.” Please, help us be reminded that You are always in control and You alone holds the future. Teach us to be still and remember that You are God.

Gracious God, give us peace within our family. Intervene in our arguments and fights. Be in the midst of couples struggling from physical, emotional, and mental abuse. Lord, give us strength and calm minds so we will have the courage and wisdom to know when and how to walk away.

Merciful Father, bring also peace within each communities, countries, and the entire world. Manage the crime, the gang wars, rape, robberies, and overall murders. We declare that Your presence will be in our neighborhood today. Loving Jesus, help us all, especially the families who have recently lost loved ones. Be their refuge and comforter in these struggling times.

We know that worrying gets us nowhere. Yet we still allow worry and anxiety to consume us. In times such as these, Lord, we ask you to grant us a great amount of strength, faith, and courage to fight off the doubt and fear within our minds. Remind us always that faith casts out fear while fear casts out faith. Allow us to remain calm in times of trouble and gives us the patience to wait on Your blessings, for we believe that everything will fall into place in Your perfect time. We ask You also to give us the patience we need to weather the storm as we feel your comfort and warm embrace while you ease our worrying minds. In Jesus’ mighty name, we pray. Amen.
