Prayer For Calmness And Comfort
Slow me down, Lord! Ease the pounding of my heart by the quieting of my mind. Steady my hurried pace with a vision of the eternal reach of time. Give me, amidst the confusions of my day, the calmness of the everlasting hills. Break the tensions of my nerves with the soothing music of the singing streams that live in my memory. Please help me to know the magical power of sleep, teach me the art of taking minute vacations of slowing down to look at a flower to chat with an old friend or make a new one to pet a dog to watch a spider build a web to smile at a child, or to read a few lines from a good book. Remind me each day that the swift does not always win the race, that there is more to life than increasing its speed. Let me look upward into the towering oak branches and know that it grew great and strong because it grew slowly and well. Slow me down, Lord, and inspire me to send my roots deep into the soil of life’s enduring values that I may grow toward the stars of our greater destiny in Jesus’ name.

Prayer For Guidance In My Decisions
Almighty God, Heavenly Father, you know my mind and my thoughts and my heart. You know that I cannot control this swirl of emotions that is happening within me. I feel lost and worried. I feel like any decision I make is the wrong one. I feel like even when I try to make the right decision so the consequences never come out the way I wanted or intended. I feel like I am hurting others with my actions and my decisions.
Dear Lord, you know my decision before I make it. You know the outcome before it happens. You are the beginning and the end. You, who is most Holy. I ask that you help me to put all of my trust and all of my faith in you. You who know what is best for me and for all of your people. I only want to do your will and live in your glory.

To Walk In Joy And Peace
Lord, I am so thankful today that You haven’t abandoned me to my flesh and my emotions! Because Your Spirit lives in me, I can be empowered to walk in joy and peace in any situation. Forgive me for pandering to the whims of my flesh and for allowing it to rant and rave when Your Spirit inside me is longing to cause His supernatural joy and peace to rule my life. I turn from my past habits of worry and fear, and I deliberately choose to let the Holy Spirit flood me with Your unquenchable joy and incomprehensible peace!
I pray this in Jesus’ name!
I confess that I am dominated by the fruits of joy and peace. Fear and anxiety have no place in my life neither am I ruled by the temporary, fleeting emotions of happiness. Joy strengthens me and stabilizes me in every situation. Peace rules my emotions, helping me to maintain stability and eradicate emotional chaos from my life and surroundings. I am inhabited by the Spirit of God Himself – and as I yield to Him, He is controlling me more and more!
I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!

Why We Should Pray For Peace
Prayer is one of our most powerful actions as Christians. It draws us closer to the heart of God.
Naturally, praying for peace allows us to:
- Ask God for miracles in times of need
- Bring divided communities together
- Provide support to those who need it
- Draw strength to face challenges
But peace isn’t just something that comes from God. As we see in Matthew 5:9, we are all called to be peacemakers here on earth, as it says: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”
Sometimes being a peacemaker means working with others to provide crisis support, donations, and emergency help. Other times, it means finding peace within ourselves.
For example, in the “Comforted by Faith” episode of our Life Podcast, Roma Downey recalled losing her mother very suddenly as a child. Soon after her mother passed, she visited her mother’s grave with her father. When Roma observed a butterfly nearby, her father remarked that the butterfly could be her mother’s spirit at rest. Now, the sight of a butterfly brings Roma strength and comfort as it reminds her of her mother’s love.
Like Roma, most of us draw comfort and strength from the sight of something familiar. And for many of us, that’s the Bible.
Bible Verses About Peace
Peace is the subject of many Bible verses, making it a great place to turn to as a reminder of God’s plan for Biblical peace.
Biblical peace is a special type of peace that transcends our modern understanding of “peace.” It isn’t just the absence of violence or war. Instead, Biblical peace refers to a state of “calmness” and “completeness” that comes when someone accepts Jesus as their savior. We can see this from the Hebrew word for peace, “Å¡ÄlÃ´m,” which refers to totality, completeness, fulfillment, harmony, security, and wholeness.
God’s design for peace is visible throughout the Bible, including in:
- John 16:33: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer I have overcome the world.”
- Isaiah 26:3: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
- Colossians 3:15: “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also ye are called in one body, and be ye thankful.”
It’s also visible in many Bible stories like the one recounted in our podcast episode ‘Jesus Calms the Storm.’
In this story, Jesus meets a man possessed by demons. As the son of God and the prince of peace, Jesus commands the spirits to leave the man. This merciful act restores the man’s inner peace and strengthens his love for the Lord.
