Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. — 2 Thessalonians 3:16
Father, You are wise and all-knowing. You allow all things to happen in Your perfect timing.
Please give me peace in the midst of a busy season with my family. I feel pulled in so many directions by my kids’ needs, my husband’s requests, and my life.
Surround my family in this time. May Your peace bring us all peace, and may You create a calm environment in our home.
Thank You that You have gone before us in this hectic time and for bringing order to the chaos when we need it most. Thank You for giving me time to hug my kids and show them what a precious gift they are to me.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. — Isaiah 26:3
Dear God, Your ways are perfect. Your will is good. You deserve all praise.
You have promised perfect peace to those who focus on You. Help me to keep my thoughts on You. When I rush ahead to the next plan or responsibility, bring me back to You and Your goodness.
Help my children to fix their eyes on you when they experience fear or anxiety. Show them who You are, and grow their trust in You.
I am grateful for the gift of peace we have in You. Thank You for the example of faith that I see in my children’s lives.
In Your precious name I pray, amen.
A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. — Proverbs 16:9
Father, You are above time. You know what will happen before it happens. You are the creator and ruler of all. Steady my heart today as I make to-do lists. Direct my steps. Do not let me be overcome by anxiety and fear. Direct the steps of my family today as well. Show them that Your way truly is the best way, and give them a desire to do Your will.
Thank You for Your steadfast love.
Thank You for giving me time to play with my children and for the joy that it brings to us all. I’m so grateful for their laughter and hugs.
In Your name I pray, amen.
