Prayer for Peace and Strength

Dear Lord,

I come to You today seeking Your peace and strength. I know that I live in a world that is filled with turmoil and strife, and I often feel overwhelmed by the challenges I face. I pray that You would give me Your peace, a peace that surpasses my own understanding, to guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

I also pray for strength. I know that You are the source of all strength and power, and I ask that You would give me the strength I need to face each day with courage and determination. Help me to rely on Your strength and not my own, knowing that You will never give me more than I can bear.

I pray that Your peace and strength would flow through me, impacting those around me and bringing hope and healing to a world in need.

In Your precious name I pray, Amen.
