I come to You today with a heavy heart and a troubled mind. I ask for Your peace to flood my soul and for Your strength to sustain me. I know that You are the Prince of Peace and that You promise to give me rest. I trust in Your Word and believe that You are always with me, even in the midst of difficult times.
I ask that You would give me the wisdom to navigate the challenges I face and the courage to trust in Your sovereignty. I pray that You would give me the grace to forgive those who have hurt me and the ability to extend forgiveness to myself as well.
I thank You for Your love and faithfulness and trust in Your promises that You will never leave me or forsake me.
In the name of Jesus, I pray for peace of mind and heart, Amen.
