Help me to trust You even when I don't understand what's going on around me. Help me to see Your goodness and provision over my life. In the midst of my storm, send a calm to my spirit reminding me that You are in control of it all. You have never left my side, and I know that You never will. You have protected me, comforted me, and provided for me time and time again, and for that I'm thankful. For that reason, I can smile through it all because I know that the joy that I have comes from You and not from my circumstances.
I pray for Your peace that surpasses anything that I could ever understand. A peace that calms my soul and embraces your presence.... Your good, sweet, and loving presence. Keep me wrapped in Your arms, Father. Keep me still in you.
In Jesus' name,
"Always be full of joy in the Lord.
I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are
considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
Don’t worry about anything.
Instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
Then you will experience God’s peace,
which exceeds anything we can understand.
His peace will guard your hearts and minds
as you live in Christ Jesus."
