Here are 3 prayers for peace of mind for you to bring to God
1. A prayer for peace of mind in decision-making
When making important decisions, always pray for God’s guidance. This prayer for peace in decision-making invites Him to direct your path and also give you the wisdom needed to make the right choices.
Also remember, we don’t go through life alone. God is always with us, ready to guide His children.
“Dear Lord, please guide me in the decisions I make today.
I know you have a plan for each of us, according to Your good will (Jeremiah 29:11). Help me to trust in Your plan for my life and give me the peace of mind to make choices that align with Your desires.
Lord, bless me with Your guidance and wisdom. Show me the right path to take. Humble my heart to ask this not only for my sake, but also for those around me whom You love.
Point me towards also making the best decision that will help me glorify You and Your Kingdom, above everything else (Matthew 6:33).
Father God, thank You for hearing my prayer.
In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
Say this prayer to resist the devil.
2. A prayer for peace of mind in times of stress and anxiety
We live in a troubled world that often causes us stress and anxiety.
But fear not! No matter the situation, God promises you His divine peace when things get rough. There is also nothing you cannot overcome when you lean on Him.
Here’s a prayer to help you!
“Lord, I come to you feeling overwhelmed and anxious. Please wrap your arms around me and bring me peace in the midst of this chaos (John 14:27).
I know you see the hard situation I’m facing right now, like no one else does. Help me trust in your strength as I cast all my anxieties at your feet (1 Peter 5:7; Philippians 4:6-7).
It is only You, Lord, who can give me true rest in my soul (Matthew 11:28-30). I know You walk with me and will help to still the turbulent waters in my mind.
You are in control of everything. I surrender my will to Yours, and trust that You will remove the anxieties of my heart. I know You will also work things out in Your perfect timing.
In Jesus’ glorious name I pray, amen.”
Say this prayer when you’re feeling discouraged.
3. A prayer for peace in relationships
When relationships are strained, it can be tough to find comfort.
But just like other prayers for peace of mind, this one will help you bring your concerns to God.
As you pray, trust that He will intervene and work on restoring your relationships. Or, if God deems it the better option, have faith that He will also protect you by closing the doors on the ones causing you harm.
“Dear Lord, I come before you today to humbly ask for help in my relationships with others.
I pray that you will bless me with peace of mind. Soften my heart as you teach me how to let go of any anger or resentment I may be holding onto.
By Your love and compassion, give me the strength to forgive and to seek forgiveness (Colossians 3:13-14; Ephesians 4:32). Help me to nurture harmonious bonds with the people in my life.
Please also restore my relationships by the fruit of the Spirit – in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness. goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
Alternatively, if You feel it is wiser for me to exit any relationships that are not aligned with Your will, guide me to do so in a way that reflects Your grace.
I trust your wisdom in all things.
In Jesus’ precious name I pray, amen.”
