Prayer For Inner Peace And 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.
Dear God I ask for peace of mind. I pray that I am calm, collected and tranquil at all times today. I rest and relax in your presence. I let go of all anxious thoughts. I stop rushing and start praying. I let go and I let God.
In Jesus Christ's name, Amen.
Lord, I don't know if I can stand the suspense. I had those tests run and now I wait. I can't think of anything else except the phrase, What if... and it repeats itself over and over again. I need your calm in the midst of the unknown. I know I can trust you, but I'm afraid. The stress of not knowing is enough to overwhelm me.
Help me trust you and surrender this, what if... to you so that peace floods my heart. Calm my mind and still my racing heart. Help me to trust you with my future.
O blessed Jesus, give me stillness of soul in You. Let your mighty calmness reign in me. Rule me, O King of Gentleness, King of Peace.

Lord, I'm surrounded by my enemies and I don't see an escape route. Do I give up or stand and fight? I'm not sure I can make my way through, but I know you can. I close my eyes and still my soul because you are my hiding place. You are my refuge and you make a way. Sometimes the way is through, and other times it's retreat. But there's another option.
In the presence of my enemies, you set a table filled with abundant goodness, joy, power, and peace. You invite me to feast without fear that my enemies will overcome me. You meet me here, in the midst of this stressful experience, and you provide enough of what I need.
Lord, I find myself stuck in the desert place. My way seems littered with sharp rocks and every step I take fills me with pain. I'm searching for peace and refreshment and I can't seem to find my way. My heart raceswondering if you've left me stranded here and if I will ever reach a spacious place of beauty and rest.
I pray that you would calm my heart's frantic search for you. Let your peace overtake me as I remember that you lead me out of deserts to green pastures. Help me see how you turn my desert into a place of lush meadows. Calm my heart as I follow you.
Lord, sometimes I forget that following you means trusting you to guide me safely to shore. The disciples in Luke 8:22-25 got in the boat because they trusted you and knew your heart for them. They didn't expect danger and I didn't either when I set out on this journey. I'm taken by surprise when a storm blows through the very path you've directed me to take. Somehow, I've lulled myself into thinking that if you've directed it then my way will be storm-free.
I realize that's not the case, so I appeal to you to calm my storm the way you did for the disciples. Lord, speak to the wind and waves and say, Peace. I fear I won't make it through to the other side if you don't intervene. Speak peace and let there be calm. Grow my faith as I trust in you. Amen.
