Our Lord, Master and ever-loving Provider, let Your presence invade Your sweet and precious child’s life. Grant me a stillness that comes from Your abiding peace when emotions beckon me to move in a false direction. Keep me moving in the the way of truth as You shield me from the flaming arrows of our enemy. Take my hurt, Lord, and cover those wounds with inexplicable grace that will draw my offenders to repentance leading to salvation. Bring me into the promised land, Jesus, as only You know the way before me. So I will trust in Your rod and staff to guide me. Father God, calm the storm in my soul caused by anxiety by drawing me into Your word and resting me in Your promises. Under the protection of 2 Corinthians 1:20 and the authority of Christ Jesus who sees all things, I place these prayers upon the altar of God.
