Amen.

Everlasting Love Prayer
Everlasting God, you never fail to help your people. Throughout history we see you acting in love towards your children. When they cry out to you, you hear and respond. When they fail and turn away from you, you do not turn your back on them. In this time of trouble, give me a steadfast mind and fill me with peace as I put my trust in you. With you, I will not crumble like a house built on sand but I will stand firm with my feet on you, the everlasting rock. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Eternal Father, you know my past, present and future, nothing is unknown to you. When I worry about what is ahead of me, please calm my fears with the knowledge that you go before me. I will never be alone because you will always be with me. You have promised that you will not fail me or forsake me and you are faithful to keep all your promises. Take away my fear and replace it with faith in your unending love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

God is My Rock Prayer
Lord, my rock and redeemer, you know everything about me. You have rescued me from my sin, you have called me by name. I belong to you. As I pass through the storms of life, you are with me. You say that I will not be overwhelmed in the flood or consumed by the fire. You are my Savior in every part of my life. You give me everything I need. The breath I use to pray this prayer is a gift from you. Help me rely on you. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Prince of Peace Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, you are the prince of peace, you breathed on your disciples and gave them your peace. I ask that you would give me your peace in this time of trouble.

Please give me that peace at this time. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Remove My Fear Prayer
Graciously loving Father, you hear the prayers of your people. Please turn your ear to my cry for help. As I seek you, would you answer and deliver me from all my fears. The fears that threaten to overwhelm me don’t stand a chance in the light of your loving power. When I feel out of control, remind me that you are in control. You make all things work together for my good even when I don’t understand how that could be possible. Increase my faith in you. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

God’s Peace Prayer
God of all peace, you are the source of all hope in life. My circumstances are far from peaceful at this time Lord but your peace is not the peace that the world offers. Your peace can transcend the situation I find myself in. My heart is troubled Lord, you said you can take away my fear. Give me your peace and let it transform my mind, my heart and my actions. I can’t see a way out, but you can make a way. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

God Is with Me Prayer
Faithful Father, you have never left my side. Although I have often wandered from you, you have always remained beside me. With you at my side, I will not be shaken, whatever life throws at me. Help me to always place you at the center, guiding my path and protecting me from evil. As I experience the brokenness of this world would you refresh my soul to continue praising you. There is no God like you, you are worthy of all my praise. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
