Heavenly Father, I lift up my words to You through the great and powerful Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. You created all things ​to be perfect and to exemplify Your glory. However, man has made Your perfect creation take on the stains of our transgressions, and sin has left the world in a state of perpetual chaos. Thank you that You are our peace and comfort in the storms of life. It is because of Your Son (Jesus) dying on the cross and being resurrected that I can have “peace with God” and “the peace of God.”

In Isaiah 9:6b in the Bible, You describe Jesus as the “Prince of Peace.” What a beautiful description that is. It is a great blessing that You show me in Philippians 4:4-6 how to have the peace that is expressed in verse 7. Direct me to practice verses 4, 5, and 6 to be blessed with Your peace. Philippians 4:4-6 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.Philippians 4:7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Thank you that when all else around me is crumbling, I can turn to You, “The Prince of Peace,” knowing that Your love never fails, and no one can separate me from Your love. Remind me often that the same power that resurrected Jesus from the grave is available today to give me peace with others. Psalm 29:11The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.” I ask that You bless me with Your perfect peace. Amen.

Comfort, Blessing and Peace of Mind

Heavenly Father,  in Jesus’ Name, thank you for the many promises in Your Word about one of man’s greatest needs and desires, peace of mind.  Since I can never totally avoid the conflict and strife in the world around me, many times I get caught up in the day to day stress, grief and sorrows ​of this life.

Show me how to rest in the marvelous gift of peace You have given to those who believe in Jesus. “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the worldJohn 16:33.

What an amazing statement of power and peace. It is such a blessing to have You make it clear in Your Word that after accepting Jesus as my Savior my peace with God is secure forever. It is only the peace of God that I have to pursue for the rest of my life. “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus ChristRomans 5:1.

Keep me from fixating on the illusions of peace this world brings but rather, direct me to focus on the promise and the instruction in Isaiah 26:3. “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Direct me to trust the peace of Christ to rule in my heart and mind, and to give You the glory for that peace.

I bring this prayer in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
