A Prayer to Trust God #CalmHeart

Life in just about every corner of our nation is stressful right now. I recently told my daughter, "In my wildest dreams, I never imagined seeing our current headlines".  Keeping our thoughts aligned with truth is something we must make a serious effort to do. It's not easy , but we cannot allow worry to choke out our peace and joy.

Let's CHOOSE to trust God and ask Him for grace, peace, and JOY. Let's trust  and rely on HIM and not ourselves. 


Lord, help me to keep my thoughts aligned with truth. Help me not to trust in my own frail abilities, but instead to trust You. As I experience relief by entrusting YOU over what's currently happening in our nation and also my own circumstances, thank you for filling me with Your JOY and with new strength—Your limitless strength. When I feel weary and exhausted physically or mentally or spiritually, may I consistently see beyond what is in front of me and always choose to believe You, trust You, and hope in You. God You are faithful and You are sovereign. Thank you for intervening in all these things as only You can. In the strong name of Jesus, amen.

“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
