The world wants to steal your peace. Your mind wants to steal your peace. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” John 14:27

The world and your mind will steal your peace by what you focus on. Focus on the media bombarding you with images and messages of fear and unrest and you will receive more unrest. Focus on feelings of fear, anxiety, anger, grief with your thoughts, and you will not have peace.

If peace is what you seek, focus your thoughts on this prayer for peace.

A Prayer for Peace

Dear God,

I need your peace now.

Silence my thoughts of confusion.

Silence my thoughts of anxiety.

Silence my thoughts of grief or despair.

Silence my thoughts of hurt or anger.

When there is chaos and turmoil surrounding me, shelter and protect me with your peace and loving, powerful presence.

As I take this time to stop and pray, fill me with your peaceful presence.

With each breath I take, I breathe in your peace that surpasses all understanding.

Help me to focus on peace instead of unrest.

I surrender my unrest to you so that I may receive peace.

Help me to be a spark that ignites peace in others.
