11 Uplifting Christian Prayers for Peace

In times of conflict, seeking the Lord can help to place your heart and mind at peace. Only the Lord is able to carry any burden that is too tough for you to hold. These uplifting Christian prayers for peace will lead you down the path to seek out the Lord’s assistance and guidance.

Ecclesiastes 11:5
Holy God, I pray that I humble myself right now. Although You have enabled me to think logically, practically and intellectually, You know all things. Just as I do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, I cannot understand the works of You – the Maker of all things – with my own knowledge. Your works require revelation and divine understanding, so help me in this area of my life and grant me patience and understanding in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Proverbs 4:7
Father in Heaven, thank You for instructing me and teaching me in the way that I should go. I know that You will counsel me with Your loving eye upon me. I pray that my guidance comes solely from You and Your word. I pray that my patience and understanding comes from You and not from man, because man doesn’t know all things like You do. I will seek You for my wisdom and my understanding, thank You Lord, Amen.

Proverbs 21:2
Gracious Lord, sometimes I think that my own ways are right, but You weigh my heart and You know my intentions. Instead of my flesh being my internal guide, let Your Spirit instruct me on the way that I should go. I pray that I become sensitive to hearing Your instruction so that I know what to do. Lord help me to live righteously with You and set apart from the world; teach me patience I pray, Amen.

2 Corinthians 4:18
Beautiful God, I pray that I fix my eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, because what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. Lord, I pray that do not operate under the temporary, but let my lifestyle come from understanding what is eternal. I pray that my focus never shifts from You because You are eternal, You do not fade away or change, Amen.

Proverbs 19:21
Father, many plans are in my heart, but I pray that Your purpose prevails. Let Your will be done in my life and let the plans that You have released in heaven, be aligned here on earth. I pray that I understand Your purpose for me so that I do not stray from it or forget it. Let my desires become aligned with Your purpose so that I am not conflicted in my lifestyle. This is the prayer of my heart, Amen.

Ephesians 1:17 & 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22
Dear Lord, again I ask that You, my glorious Father, may give me the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation, so that I may know You better! I pray for divine understanding so that I can walk in all that You have called me to do and be. I pray that I hold on to what is good and reject every kind of evil; help me understand the things that are right in Your eyes, Amen.

Psalm 119:130
God of Wisdom, Your word says that the unfolding of Your words gives light; they give understanding to the simple. I pray that as I read Your word, I realise it on a deeper level so that I can walk in Your light and gain understanding. I pray that I do not become content with understanding at a surface level, instead I pray for an outpouring of patience, divine understanding and revelation in life; thank you in advance Lord, Amen.

Isaiah 55:9
Maker of all things, as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are Your ways higher than my ways, and Your thoughts than my thoughts. I pray for understanding so that I may walk in Your ways rather than my own ways and think in Your thoughts rather than my own thoughts. My way of thinking is limited, and my ways are immature and irresponsible. I thank You in advance for giving me understanding so that I can be more like You, Amen.
