{Lenten Reflections} Prayer for Peace of Mind and Stress

There are just times when we feel so stressed our can't get peace of mind and we end up staying up all night and not getting the sleep we need. I won't deny that I always fall into that feeling over and over again. And when stress gets the best of me, I turn to prayer. Here are two other prayers I always recite when I feel troubled and can't seem to settle down. Hope they would help you as much as it has helped me. God ALWAYS listens.

This is the most famous Serenity Prayer. May it give you peace of mind whenever you feel troubled and anxious.

A Prayer for Peace of Mind
Almighty God, We bless you for our lives, we give you praise for your abundant mercy and grace we receive. We thank you for your faithfulness even though we are not that faithful to you.
Lord Jesus, we ask you to give us all around peace in our mind, body, soul and spirit. We want you to heal and remove everything that is causing stress, grief, and sorrow in our lives.
Please guide our path through life and make our enemies be at peace with us. Let your peace reign in our family, at our place of work, businesses and everything we lay our hands on.
Let your angels of peace go ahead of us when we go out and stay by our side when we return. In Jesus' name, Amen.
 Need to de-stress? A prayer would also be the perfect solution to that. Not even the most expensive ice cream can beat this. 

A Prayer to Heal Stress
Heavenly Father, please grant me peace of mind
and calm my troubled heart. My soul is like
a turbulent sea. I can’t seem to find my balance
so I stumble and worry constantly. Give me the
strength and clarity of mind to find my purpose
and walk the path you’ve laid out for me. I trust
your Love God, and know that you will heal this stress.
Just as the sun rises each day against the dark of
night. Please bring me clarity with the light of God.
In your name I pray, Amen.
