Prayer for Peacefulness

Dear God,

I come to You today seeking peace and tranquility in my heart and mind. I know that in this world, there will be times of unrest and turmoil, but I trust in Your promise that You will never leave me or forsake me. Help me to find rest in You, and to trust in Your plan for my life.

I pray that You would fill me with Your spirit of peace, and that Your peace would guard my heart and mind. Help me to let go of any anxiety or worry that may be weighing me down, and to trust in Your unfailing love and care for me.

I pray for peace in my relationships, and for harmony and unity among those around me. I pray for Your protection and guidance for myself and for those I love.

Thank You for Your faithfulness, and for the gift of peace that You offer to us through Your son, Jesus.

In his name I pray, Amen.
