I refuse to let anything steal that peace, knowing that whatever comes my way, You have it under control. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer Declaration:

Thank you, Lord that You will keep me in perfect peace as my mind stays focused on You. Help me to trust in You. Teach me Your promises, that I may cling to them in times of need.

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Jesus, thank You that your peace is not the same peace that the world gives. Your peace calms any circumstance and is everlasting. I don’t have to let my heart be troubled. When anxiety or fear begins to rise up, I can cast those feelings down, knowing that Your perfect peace prevails. Fill me afresh today with that peace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Psalm 4:8

In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Prayer Declaration:

Thank you, Lord that You keep me safe and in perfect peace in the day and in the night....in the good times and in the bad. Worry and anxiety will not keep me up at night, nor affect my sleep. I will be able to rest because I am confident in You and Your ability to protect me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Ephesians 6:13-15

Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life.

Prayer Declaration:

Thank you, Jesus that You’ve given me everything I need to persevere in life. Thank you for the strength that You’ve given me today to battle anything that comes against me. I will put on the shoes of peace fueled by the Good News, so that I am ready for whatever comes my way. No person or situation will be allowed to steal that peace from me. I will walk in forgiveness and grace today, allowing peace to flow in me and through me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
