Heavenly Father, release Your peace into my life. Let it infiltrate into my heart, into my soul and into my mind. Father, the noise that surrounds me is unbearable at times.
It exhausts me to the point where I feel uneasy and spiritually drained. Rescue me from the darkness of this world that attempts to drown You out.
Pierce through the walls of deception and speak to me, Lord. I yearn to hear Your roar! Fill me with all joy and peace that by your Holy Spirit I may abound and grow in hope and love.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Intervene, Oh Prince of Peace! Bestow Your tranquility and love upon me. Embrace me in Your comforting loving arms, that I may never feel uneasy and alone.
Allow Your peace to pierce through my heart as You grant me unity and order in my life. Let not my heart be troubled. I was not given a spirit of fear but of power and of a sound mind.
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Romans 15:33 May the God of peace be with you all.
Psalm 29:11 The Lord gives strength to his people. The Lord blesses his people with peace.
I’m a young Christian, from South Trinidad, seeking the wisdom of the Word and God’s blessings on my life. A journey, that’s just begun, but living to the Glory of God.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
Many times in my life when I seek God in prayer about significant things on my heart that are hard to discern, or if I am wary of my own desires being too strong about it, then I ask God to give me a peace. Simply, a peace in my heart from Him. And if He does not give me His peace, then I know not to go there. It’s a peace that is not of myself, or because His answer is what I wished / hoped for, or because things will be the way I want. But a peace that can only be from Him.
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)
God is the one who gives us peace. And it’s not a worldly kind of peace. He is the one who establishes peace for us (Isaiah 26:12).
I want to share with you about this peace.
Peace is an alignment with you and God in your heart and mind. He has wisdom to give to you, you receive it, and He gives you peace.
Peace is when you and Him are one. You are in His presence and at rest. Not just in your inner man, but in your mind as well. Romans 8:6 says “the mind of the Spirit is life and peace.”
It’s not necessarily that whatever you are praying about He will respond with, “Oh, it will be okay!” and that is why you have peace, but rather He gives you a peace no matter what the circumstances or uncertainty that surrounds what you are praying about.
Peace is a stillness of your spirit being one with the Holy Spirit. It’s a calmness and assurance that His presence is in you. The opposite of peace is worry and unrest. When you’re not at peace, things can get ugly. And when you don’t have peace, you seek it.
You seek it through intercession, prayer, the word, and fasting, and you wait. When you seek God, specifically for wisdom, waiting until He answers you is so key. Sometimes you have to wait awhile, but when He answers you, He will give you peace. That peace comes through the Holy Spirit, who ministers, counsels, and comforts you. When you are lined up with the Word, walk in it, and obeying it, God gives you peace.
Taking the time to listen and wait on God to give you His peace is so important. “I will listen to what God the LORD will say; He promises peace to His people, His saints–but let them not return to folly” (Psalm 85:8 ). God promises us His peace. But do we forget to seek Him for it? I think back over the times when I moved ahead when I didn’t have a peace, and it wasn’t pretty. I moved ahead because I thought I had to. There are very few times that has happened, but when I did, it was a mistake and there were consequences.
We are instructed in God’s Word to “seek peace and pursue it” and to “pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart”, and to “be diligent to be found in peace” (1 Peter 3:11, 2 Timothy 2:22, 2 Peter 3:14).
It’s very important to seek God on decisions and in different circumstances; in the midst of it, when you seek Him, He gives you peace. Sometimes you won’t receive understanding; but you have His peace, which surpasses your understanding. There have been so many times in my life I had such incredible peace, and I could not understand why except for that God had given it to me; it had to come only from Him.
When God gives you this peace, you have to receive it with a measure of faith. You have to trust Him. Not because you understand, but because you know Who it is you are trusting- that He is faithful, good. Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Sometimes you can move forward with faith, but it is so much better to have God’s peace. 1 Timothy 6:6 in the BBE says, “But true faith, with peace of mind, is of great profit.”
“For God is not a God of confusion, but of peace.” (1 Corinthians 14:33). When you don’t understand but you have peace, you won’t be confused. God’s peace is what puts your heart and mind at rest. And you have this peace because God is ministering to you through His presence. Throughout the entire Bible, God is identified as “the God of peace” (Romans 15:33, Hebrews 13:20, Philippians 4:9) and Jesus is called “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 6:9). He Himself is our peace (Ephesians 2:14).
Peace is God’s presence and Spirit in you. Like Jesus standing up in the boat during the storm. He had peace because God’s presence was with Him.
Peace is a fruit of the Holy Spirit that we should have in our lives as we abide in God (Galatians 5:22. John 15:4-5). Isaiah 32:17 says, “The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.” Romans 14:17 says that God’s kingdom is a matter of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit!
God’s Word also ministers His peace to us. Psalm 119:165 says, “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” Jesus said in John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Don’t allow troubles or fear to reign in your heart, but instead, live Colossians 3:15 and let the peace of God rule in your heart.
Peace is directly tied to seeking God and being obedient in faith; it is a gift God gives you.
“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.” 2 Thessalonians 3:16
