Prayer for Day 2
Day 2 Pray for Peace
I pray for peace of mind for myself, my family, and my neighbors. Your word tells me to cast all my cares and anxieties on you because You care for us. Help me, my family, friends and neighbors choose to trust You rather than dwell on fear-based thoughts. Help us to take authority over the voice of fear and tell it to be silent in Jesus name. Lead us into dedicating our hearts and minds to You, and to place our trust in Your word. Your promise to us is that You will keep our minds in perfect peace as we choose to put our trust in You.
I thank You that according to Philippians 4:7 the peace of God guards my heart and mind. Holy Spirit, if anxiety tries to creep in, remind me to refocus my heart on the faithfulness of God. Help me to speak words of faith instead of speaking negative things about circumstances. Father, I repent for putting my hope and confidence in the wrong things. You are my source for every need, and You promise ‘the Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not lack,” according to Psalm 23:1. Thank You for Your faithfulness to attend to my needs, those of my family, friends and neighbors. If You want to use me to help meet someone else’s need so that their heart and mind can be at peace, please place that person and their need on my heart today, and show me what You would have me do for them. In Jesus name, Amen.
