Dear lord, today I come to you not with a heavy heart but with a weight over all my thoughts. I have had some contact with David but not the kind of contact I would want. I don’t know if he wants to be with me I guess that’s the worst part not knowing what to say.
I want to let him know how I feel honestly but I’m afraid he maybe doesn’t care anymore. I do want to hear from him dear lord I really do. Part of me wants to run back and tell him I love him. I apologize for not using the chance to talk to him when he contacted me. I should’ve handled that differently. Dear lord I feel myself getting stronger there are times when it doesn’t consume all of my thoughts all of my day and all of my emotions, that is what I need and I thank you for helping me thus far.
In the days to come I fear it is going to get even harder. I want to hear that he cares for me. I even want to hear about the little things like how his first day at work went. Dear lord let him see my worth, have him think of me, everything about me because I know there is more good than bad.
I want to enjoy this vacation to Disney land I owe it to my family and I myself deserve it please bless my family and take care of us
Dear, Heavenly Father,
Help me to be strong. I am so troubled by my quarrel with my mother. She is really mad at me because she caught me lying about little things a lot of times. Although those lies were so little, i know that its the thought of lying that bother my mother. She’s been mad at me for 3 straight days now Father, please touch her heart so that she may be able to forgive me. I promise I will try not to lie again. I’ve learned my mistakes and I will try to change.
Help me pass my academic struggles Father. I do not want to disappoint my parents and myself again. help me catch up with PEC and research. I want to pass father. Help me pass. I will start doing my best and try to start a new life. For you, for my family, for my friends and for Lucky.
Lord, Please help me be assured that Lucky will always be there for me no matter what. I love Lucky Father as much as I love my parents. Please Father, make our love for each other last. Ive been really anxious about him leaving me. Please let our love remain.
Give me rest Father. I just couldnt take handling too many problems at once. Help me gain forgiveness and peace so that I may serve you better. I trust you Oh Lord. Amen.

Return to A Prayer for Peace of Mind
O Everlasting Father, thank you for peace of mind. Thank you for the peace that remains and abides with me forever.
Just as your son, Jesus Christ was able to find peace in the midst of the storm, even so dear Father, you have given me your peace, that I too can find rest in the midst of my storms.
Your peace is enduring and steadfast, from your Holy Spirit within me. I shall not fear, for you are with me always.
Isaiah 53:5 But for our transgressions, he was wounded. He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
O Jehovah Shalom, thank you Lord, that my feet are securely planted. I shall not be moved from your ways. Thank you that your peace will only increase, as I walk with you through this world.
Denouncing the lies of the Enemy
Father, right now I speak to the roots of fear, which are guilt, shame and condemnation. By the blood of your son Jesus Christ, I have been forgiven of all sins, past, present and future! I am forgiven in your sight.
I denounce the lies of the enemy that accuse me that I am not right in your sight. Because of the blood of Jesus, I can be fully confident to come boldly into your presence, not in my own righteousness, but in the righteousness of your son.
I confess and believe in your word, where you said there is therefore now, no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.
And so I renounce those lies. I put my faith in the blood of Jesus, to know that I am no longer guilty, not broken and not condemned by you!

The Storms coming against our lives
In the name of Jesus Christ, I speak to the storms coming against my life, and say, “Peace be still!” I command all torment and fear to go, now!
I release the kingdom of God over my heart and mind. The peace of God steadies my emotions.
All those who suffer from panic attacks and anxiety, I declare any holds of illness was broken on the cross, 2000 years ago.
I declare that Jesus Christ bore the chastisement of your peace upon himself, that you would not be afflicted by fear!
Every emotional chain that hold the people of God in bondage, I command it to fall to the ground Now! Every device and weapon of the enemy, I command it to come to nothing, now!
Thank you Father, for the victory over my emotions and soul, given to me at the cross, where Jesus crushed the head of Satan with such force, it bruised his heal!
Thank you Father that I can walk free of fear, in your abiding peace, all the days of my lives. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!!!

Is your heart troubled? Are you feeling like the psalmist, who asked his own soul, “Why are you in despair? And why have you become disturbed within me?” One of the hardest parts of knowing peace is understanding how it has nothing to do with control. If you’re having trouble with trust or finding the words to pray above the howling of the scary storms, feel free to offer up these words to the Lord now!
A Prayer for Peace
Oh Lord, sometimes my insides feel like a battle zone, where missiles are falling too close to home. Other times I’m caught in an endless storm, with thoughts flying out of control. Confusion reigns, and defeat creeps in to steal my joy. I need your peace—the deep-down-in-your-heart kind that stays with me day and night and speaks confidently into the wind. Calm my anxious spirit, Lord; all the attacking “if-onlys” and “what-ifs” fill me with needless worry.
I know that trust is a big part of experiencing peace and that fear has no place in my life. Most of the things I worry about or dread don’t even happen. So I’m declaring my trust in you. I’m releasing the reins of my life again and asking you to take control. I may need to pray this same prayer daily, but I’m tired of the frenzy of life that leaves my schedule and my thoughts without any margin. I need more of you, Lord, and less of me.
I surrender and admit: I can’t control people, plans, or even all my circumstances, but I can yield those things to you, and focus on your goodness. Thank you today for every good gift you’ve given, every blessing you’ve sent, all the forgiveness I did not deserve, and, yes, for every trial you’ve allowed into my life. You bring good out of every circumstance if I’ll only let go and believe you. I know that when I pray and give thanks instead of worrying, you have promised that I can experience the kind of peace that passes all understanding. That’s your kind of peace, Lord. And it’s the kind I crave.
Whenever I’m stressed, anxious, or afraid, help me remember to run to you. You’re the only one that can calm my fears and end my fretful behavior. Whether in trivial or heavy matters, I know you will not only give me peace; Lord, you will be my peace. And when I draw close to you—in prayer, in reading your Word, in helping another, in taking my mind off myself—you will be there, up close and personal.
I can’t handle these times alone, Lord. Will you speak peace and calm my storms, or hold my hand while we walk through them together? Will you bring the reassuring wisdom of those who have come through similar times into my life? Thank you, Lord. I’m trusting you.
In the name of the One who makes the wind and the waves stand still, Amen.
