A PRAYER FOR PEACE

O God of love, I praise and thank You so many times for this time of prayer. You have blessed me abundantly by answering all my prayers. But I am now in a state of depression not able to pray or meditate on Your Word, having no peace in my life.  O Jesus Christ, You who hear prayers, have mercy on me. Give me the joy and peace that I have lost. Even small things disturb me causing me to lose a stable heart and peace. As a result, I am not able to sleep at night. O Jesus Christ, be merciful. Bless me by restoring the lost peace in me and in my family. My children too have lost peace. You who came as the Prince of Peace, give peace in my boundary. You have said, “All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.” (Is. 54:13). Grant that my children be blessed with the fullness of peace, and let them come closer to You in their daily life. Help us so that our parents may be at peace with us and my spouse be at peace with me. Let there be no lack of peace in us or in our family. As said in Philippians 4:7, let “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding” guard our ‘hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.’ For that I pour my heart before You. O Jesus Christ, have mercy on me. O Lord, You alone can give me perfect peace and guard me. I praise and thank You. Hear my prayer. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, O Father. Amen.
