Sweet Spirit: In every moment of each experience, I have the ability to choose love or fear. With Your help, I choose the path of peace. I have no idea what this coming week holds or even what today has in store. However, I do know that You are with me as my strength and guide. I choose peace and joy. I choose to be whole. I am willing to be a presence for love. I am willing to look at life differently. Please show me how. Thank You. Amen.
Whenever I’m stressed, anxious, or afraid, help me remember to run to you. You’re the only one that can calm my fears and end my fretful behavior. Whether in trivial or heavy matters, I know you will not only give me peace; Lord, you will be my peace. And when I draw close to you—in prayer, in reading your Word, in helping another, in taking my mind off myself—you will be there, up close and personal.
I can’t handle these times alone, Lord. Will you speak peace and calm my storms, or hold my hand while we walk through them together? Will you bring the reassuring wisdom of those who have come through similar times into my life? Thank you, Lord. I’m trusting you.
In the name of the One who makes the wind and the waves stand still, Amen.
