Prayer For Clear 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.
I can't stop. I can't stop these worries from clouding my mind. I can't stop these doubts from creeping up when I least expect them. I can't stop opening the door for my fears, letting them back in no matter how hard I try to push them out.
When I'm lying in bed at night, I try to focus on you. I try to remember your promise to me, to all of usthat you're never leavingbut sometimes it's so hard to believe what I can't see. You've told me a hundred times before to trust you. But trust is my biggest struggle.
How can I trust when sometimes I feel so alone? How can I trust when I'm not sure of the outcome? How can I trust when I don't have the answers and feel powerless to what's coming? How can I trust you'll truly be there when I've fallen so many times before?
I know you've promised to stay by my side. And I know you never promised me a perfect life. But sometimes when I lie awake, counting the stars, making patterns out of the constellations, I wonder if I'll ever truly feel at peace. I wonder if I'll ever have the strength to let go of what I can't control and give that fear and anxiety to you.
I think too much, God. I know you know this. I know you see the running thoughts in my head and you probably laugh because they're so silly. I worry over things that haven't happened yet. I worry over relationships that are just beginning. I worry over words I've said or didn't say. I worry whether I could have changed moments in my past or made something different happen.
The problem is, many of those moments are come and gone. The problem is, I'm letting what's behind ruin what's in front of me. The problem is, there's nothing I can do to go back and erase what was. I can only focus on what is.
And God, I need your help with that.
Please take my worried mind and calm it, take my furrowed brow and soften it, take my sweating palms and soothe them with your grace. Remind me that I do not have control of what happens in this life, but I do have a choice in how I react. I do have a choice in how I trust you and let your work be done in my life.
Please take whatever doubts I have and crush them. When I feel weak, remind me of my power in your arms. When I am tired, show me that I can continue on. When I'm wide awake, letting my mind spin in circles, help me give all that to you. And help me let what's meant to happen, happen.
Show me that it's okay to let go.
Please take my problems and remind me that you are bigger than them. Please take my fears and show me there is nothing to worry about when you are by my side.
I forget, God. I forget how powerful you are. I forget that you're always here. I forget that you promised you would stay, through thick and thin, high or low. So instead of carrying these burdens, instead of trying to fight these battles on my own, instead of acting like I have everything under control when I'm totally crumbling on the insideshow me that I am not weak for letting you take the reins.
I give it all to you, God. Every fear and every doubt, every worry and every uncertainty. I give you all of my thoughts, my crazy over-thinking. I give you my heart and ask you to protect it.
I am your child. I am loved by you, even in my lowest moments, even when I doubt. Please keep me from wandering away from you. Please keep me from losing faith when I'm frightened.
You are here, always. And I know this. So help me to trust when the road is tough; help me to see that I'm never alone and there's no need to let my mind run in circles.
The only direction I should be running is closer and closer to you. TC mark
You are the Author of peace and clarity.
You bring all things into perfect order.
You align the stars and put Earth into orbit.
Though my mind is exhausted and weary,
Your strength never runs out.
I bring my confusion, decisions, and attention deficits to You,
Knowing You are the Wonderful Counselor.
I speak Your name,
over every idea and image
that has rebelled against Your heart.
Cleanse my mind.
Clear my head.
Center my attention.
Settle my heart.
May the fog of Your Presence be thick over my thoughts.
Come renew and reinvigorate me by Your Spirit.
In Jesus name, identity, and character I pray,
Oh loving Lord,
My mind is tangled up. I can't focus. I'm confused. I need your help, oh Lord.
Send me your Holy Spirit to establish your order. May your Kingdom come and your will be done In my heart, mind and life.
Help me to give up control Into your hands, my Lord.
Let me not be afraid, as you cleanse my soul with the blood of the Lamb of God.
Give me meaning and clarity despite this troubled world.
In Jesus I am steady and free, my spirit at home.
May I focus on heaven, as my Savior comes soon.
I pray for this in Jesus name,
As he sat by the river,
the eyes of his understanding began to be opened;
not that he saw any vision,
but he understood and learnt many things,
both spiritual matters and matters of faith and of scholarship,
and this with so great an enlightenment
that everything seemed new to him.
There is nothing I can give you which you have not;
But there is much, very much, that while I cannot give,
You can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present instant.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our
Reach is joy.
There is a radiance and glory in the darkness, could we but see,
And to see we have only to look.
I beseech you to look!
Life is so generous a giver, but we, judging its gifts by the covering,
Cast them away as ugly, or heavy, or hard.
Remove the covering and you will find beneath it a living splendor,
Woven of love, by wisdom, with power.
Welcome it, grasp it, and you touch the angel's hand
That brings it to you.
Everything we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty
Believe me, that angel's hand is there, the gift is there,
And the wonder of an overshadowing presence.
Our joys, too, be not content with them as joys.
They, too, conceal diviner gifts.
Life is so full of meaning and purpose,
So full of beauty beneath its covering-
That you will find earth but cloaks your heaven.
And so, at this time, I greet you.
Not quite as the world sends greetings,
But with profound esteem
And with the prayer that for you, now and forever,
The day breaks, and all the shadows flee away.
Dear Lord and Father of humankind,
Forgive our foolish ways;
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.
Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.
Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm.
Loving God, please grant me peace of mind and calm my troubled heart. My soul is like 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,
