O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou art God ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen .
Nehemiah 8 :10 Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God . I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory.
Help me to desire always that which is pleasing and acceptable to You so that Your will may be my will. Dear God I ask for peace of mind. I pray that I am calm, collected and tranquil at all times today. I rest and relax in your presence.
I pray they turn to you for direction and forgiveness and see how much they have hurt me . Please give me eyes to see them from your perspective, and a heart to want to forgive. I ask for patience while you work your will and to show me how to be the loving Christian you have called me to be.”
Loving God , I pray that you will comfort me in my suffering, lend skill to the hands of my healers, and bless the means used for my cure. Give me such confidence in the power of your grace, that even when I am afraid, I may put my whole trust in you; through our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
The basic forms of prayer are adoration , contrition , thanksgiving and supplication, abbreviated as A.C.T.S. The Liturgy of the Hours, the seven canonical hours of the Catholic Church prayed at fixed prayer times, is recited daily by clergy, religious and devout believers.
Psalm 27 Of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, or the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
God does uphold all who fall and raises up all who are bowed down. This is the essence of divine strength . It operates when we’re all out of ‘me’ and utterly dependent on a sovereign move of God. His help and grace are no less powerful when they come through another person than when He moves in ‘miraculous ways.
I hope they will encourage you to make 2021 a year of prayer . Know to whom you are speaking. Thank him. Ask for God’s will. Say what you need. Ask for forgiveness. Pray with a friend. Pray the Word. Memorize Scripture.
Loving God, please grant me peace of mind and calm my troubled heart. My soul is like a turbulent sea. I can’t seem to find my balance so I stumble and worry constantly. Give me the strength and clarity of mind to find my purpose and walk the path you’ve laid out for me.
A Prayer for Joy Bring to silence those who condemn us for our sins, and turn our eyes upon Your holy cross. Give us the joy only You can grant, O God , and give us a willing spirit to pursue truth and goodness in our lives. Hear my prayer , O Jesus. Amen.”
Dear Lord, I pray that you may grant me the happiness that I truly deserve by letting my love come back to me. Help him/her to realize that I love him/her so much, and I am always here for him/her. Let him/her have a change of heart and come back to me. Dear Lord, you know that I truly cherish this man/woman.
Moving away from that someone who repeatedly hurts you makes for a safer space in your life. And forgiving them makes for a stress-free space in your mind. Remember, setting boundaries, that is, marking what behaviors of others you will allow towards yourself, does not mean remaining vindictive to the offender.
From one end of the Bible to the other, God repeatedly promises to forgive all who come to Him in repentance and faith. The Bible says, “The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love” (Psalm 145:8).
