A prayer for peace may be used to petition God for world peace or for personal inner peace when your own life is troubled. Here, you’ll find the ultimate collection of prayers for both issues. Here are prayers to strengthen, bring hope, and help you open up communication with God.

I have the opportunity, once more to right some wrongs, to pray for peace, to plant some trees, and sing more joyful songs. -William Arthur Ward

It is important to pray for peace. . . But you must also take actions to make that happen. Every single day.

The world wants to steal your peace. Your mind wants to steal your peace. But, don’t worry because prayer has the effects on mental health. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” John 14:27

Prayers for Peace of Mind and Heart

A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones. (Amplified Translation)

These prayers for peace of mind asks god to relieve anxiety and stress, and grant a clarity of mind to feel at ease in one’s life. Say it in the morning or evening on a daily basis until you feel at peace.

Also, one of the best prayers for anxiety is the famous Acceptance Prayer. If you’re not familiar with this prayer, I highly recommend it.

Life can easily spiral out of control, but not when prayer becomes a priority. – Jackie M. Johnson

Prayer for Peace and Healing

I meditate on you O Lord.
For you have borne the pain,
You have lived the trauma,
You have tasted shame.

I meditate on you O Lord.
For you have beaten death,
You have covered everything
With gentle loving breath.

I meditate on you O Lord.
For you’re the promise bright,
You’re the hope of healing hands,
You’re the brightest light.

I meditate on you O Lord.
Come meet me in my fears,
Touch me with your wings of love,

A Prayer for Health

A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body;
    jealousy is like cancer in the bones. (Proverbs. 14:30 NLT)

My Father,

You know the stress points in my life. One by one I hand them over to you. I lay them at your feet, knowing that you care for me even more than I care for myself. I give you all my fears, anxieties, pain, sin, burdens, and worries. I surrender all of that to you. And I receive from you, Prince of Peace, the quiet fortitude of your Holy Spirit, the peace that stays calm even in the battle, the confidence that doesn’t diminish when everything around me shakes profusely.

Please cleanse me of all negative emotions towards others. Forgive me for jealousy, covetousness, envy, and anger. Help me to rejoice with those who rejoice. And then please, Lord, grow me up to maturity. Renew my mind in your Holy Word, and give me your great joy. As I walk in your love, I know the level of Peace will grow in my heart and expand and spill over to others. That peace will be a source of health to my body, and for that, I thank you in advance.

I surrender myself to your leadership, Your Lordship. I love You, Father, and I thank you for your Spirit living and abiding in me. Thank you that I have the power that Jesus has promised to withstand every trial, temptation, and test.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Prayer for Anxious People

“Father, I pray for (name one or more) and others in my circle of family and friends who are carrying heavy loads… Your Word says an anxious heart weighs a person down, and this is how I think they must feel—as if they’re carrying heavy loads, more than they can bear. When they feel upset and beside themselves, calm them down and comfort them with the assurance of Your love. Help them not be overwhelmed by anxious thoughts. (Proverbs 12:25a; Psalm 94:19) Our hearts are not supposed to be troubled; but that’s their struggle—help them trust

You and the Lord Jesus, as I know they must. Help them understand that You are the One who makes a way when things seem impossible; nothing is too hard for You! (John 14:27; Isaiah 43:19; Jeremiah 32:17; Luke 1:37) Help them be faithful to You and to the way You want them to live, for You guard the lives of those who are faithful; You protect them and never turn away from them. Help them know You as their fortress, as the rock in whom they take refuge, as One who is good, whose love endures forever, whose faithfulness continues through all generations. (Psalm 97:10; Proverbs 2:8; Psalm 37:28; 94:22; 100:5)

In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Feeling Overwhelmed

Lord, I am frazzled. My hands are full and my mind is reeling with all the things I have to do. Please help me to accomplish all that needs to get done each day and to find rest. As I work, help me to be productive and peaceful. As I love others, help me to be calm and encouraging. I need your peace in every area of my life today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Strenthen Me, Lord

Lord, it feels like there’s so much to accomplish each day, and sometimes it’s hard to rest. I’m afraid I won’t get it all done. I’m afraid I will fail. Yet you promise to strengthen me. You are the mighty God! Help me to focus on what you can do, not what I cannot. Empower and encourage me. Give me the lasting strength only you can give. Replenish me so I can live life better and stronger. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:13

Prayer for Comfort and Strength

(a prayer for those in a difficult or stressful place)

Lord,
Lead me into the valley of your protection.
May I feel safe and secure sheltered there.

Lead me to drink from streams of life.
May I find hope and healing in the waters.

Lead me to fields of green meadows.
May I rest in quiet places on the softness of your grass.

Lead me into the light of your eternal truth.
May I bathe in the promise of heaven.

Amen.

Getting My Priorities in Order

Lord, I have my agenda, but what do you want done today? Help me to prioritize all that needs to get done. In the midst of life’s busyness, help me to be centered on what’s truly important and not always get caught up in the urgent. Help me to put you first, for I know that from my replenishing time with you all else flows. I will seek you first. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Matthew 6:33

Rest for the Weary

Lord, I am so grateful for rest. It was your idea in the first place! Instead of tossing and turning at night with eyes wide open, I give you my worries and cares, my lists and schedules. With open hands, help me to release all I cling to so tightly. I need rest for my spirit and my body. Let me live from a calm and grounded center as I come to you each day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.

Matthew 11:28–30

Prayers for World Peace

Compassionate God and Father of all,
we are horrified at violence
in so many parts of the world.
It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified.

Hold back the hands that kill and maim;
turn around the hearts that hate.
Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace –
peace that passes our understanding
but changes lives,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
