"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" John 14:27 (KJV)
Most gracious Heavenly Father, I come before you this day. Lord I first want to thank you for waking me up this morning and giving me breath in our bodies. God in the midst of life, I find myself overwhelmed with thoughts of anxiety and overwhelm. Lord your word reminds me that when I can find rest in you, Lord you are our peace. When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to the rock that is higher that I, Lord you are my peace.
Right now, God, I lay my problems and issues at your feet and ask that in exchange for my worry that you give me your peace. When I would rather allow anxiety, doubt, and worry to rule King in my life, Lord let your peace to rest, rule and abide in me. Lord, I ask you exchange my weakness for your strength. John 14:27 reminds me that you give me peace and in you I do not have to be afraid. Lord, I pray right now that you bring calm to my overwhelmed soul and you allow your peace to rule in my heart and mind. Lord let your will be done in my life, Amen.
