I come before You today with a humble and contrite heart. I confess that I have been feeling anxious and stressed, and I have struggled to find peace and rest in my mind.
But I know that You are the Prince of Peace, and You offer Your peace to all who come to You in faith. So I turn to You now, asking for Your help and guidance.
I pray that You would fill my heart and mind with Your peace, that surpasses all understanding. Help me to trust in You and Your plan for my life, even when things seem uncertain and scary. Give me the strength to let go of my worries and to rest in Your love.
I also pray that You would give me wisdom and discernment as I navigate through this difficult time. Help me to make good decisions and to seek Your will in all things.
I know that You are sovereign and in control of all things, and that You work everything for the good of those who love You and are called according to Your purpose. So I trust in You and give You all of my concerns and cares.
Please surround me with Your love and protection, and help me to feel Your presence with me always. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
