Prayer for Today

August 27, 2020

Father God, sometimes I forget that Jesus left his peace for me. I get so caught up in what’s going on in the world I neglect to cultivate my inner peace.

You have given me wisdom and soundness of mind. If something that challenges my peace, I have a right to remove it from my presence. I can turn the channel on my television or radio, or I can turn them off. I can limit the time I spend with harmful or toxic people. I can digitally detox and remove myself from social media.

I have the power to pursue my peace. The peace that You have given me. Thank You, Lord, for reminding me that I can overcome chaos and disfunction by resting in Your peace. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
