Prayer for Peace and Comfort


I seek your face Lord amidst the busyness and noisiness of the day.

In these dark, scary days of political strife, racial violence, and natural disasters I yearn for comfort .

Instead of turmoil I seek true peace, Father,  a peace that transcends all understanding.

My thoughts can be overwhelming, overpowering, and all-consuming.

They attempt to hold me captive.

Yet they have no power or control over me.

For I choose to stand on the Rock.

And I know that in the eye of a storm, You are there.  

You hear me.

You know my every thought.

My prayers do not fall on deaf ears.

If the birds of the air are not anxious, why then should I?

Thank you for your unrelenting mercy and unending grace.

May I continue to seek refuge in Your loving arms Father.

Lord, if my prayers are selfish show me thy will instead.

May thy will truly be done.
