Daily Hope & a Prayer – May 15

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27 (ESV)

Dear Father,

Thank you for your peace. Your peace is amazing.

Unlike the peace of the world that is based on my circumstances, or activities that help me cope – your peace is based on your power and trustworthiness, which is immeasurable.

Lord, you have kept me in your peace through some of the most heartbreaking situations. When the world seemed to crumple around me, and hope seemed lost, I found myself wrapped in the safety of your peace. During these times I could find no reason for this peace, other than the fact that I had chosen to trust, rest, and abide in You. Thank you for these opportunities to choose and grow in faith.

Situations such as these will most certainly arise again. When they do, help me to remember your faithfulness. Help me to choose faith. Help me to rest, trust, and abide in You. Fill and cover me with your peace. And then, I pray that You would be glorified by the peace that rests on me during those turbulent times.

Let every circumstance of my life lead others toward You.

In Jesus name I pray this. I love you.
