Prayer for Peace

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for our veterans, and all those who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. For the veterans, and those left bereft, I pray for peace. Your peace, that passes understanding, no matter what else they may be feeling. Bring them healing, bring them love. Let them feel Your Presence strongly.

I also pray for those soldiers currently fighting for peace in different parts of the world. May they never lose sight of what they’re fighting for. May they never lose sight of You. Please bring them strength, and peace to their hearts.

For the rest of us, the civilians who know facts but not experiences, please give us understanding. May we never take the sacrifices of soldiers for granted. May we do what we can in our everyday lives to promote peace — our own way of fighting for what is good and right.

Thank You, Jesus, that You are the Prince of Peace. I am so glad You brought peace between me and my Heavenly Father.

In Your precious Name,



Pauses for Prayer

Lately I have been feeling convicted to pray more intentionally and specifically. I have also been convicted to put more efforts into writing and sharing it again. So, during the month of November, I will be writing and sharing some prayers! I would love it if you wanted to join me in prayer for these different areas of life, whether you use my words or your own. Here is the first one: a prayer for family. God bless you all!

Prayer for My Family

Heavenly Father, thank You for my family. Your family, truly, that You have graciously leant to me on this earth.

Help me to teach my children well, and make me more like You, so they can understand a little of You by looking at me. I pray they would both come to a true, saving knowledge of You, that is personal and real. Shine Your light through them to others, too. Thank You for my husband, and all that he is to me and to our family. Please continue to provide work for his hands and the strength and skill he needs to do it. Thank You for leading him as he leads us. Give him wisdom in everything, Lord.

Help me to love them, and all my other family members, as You do. You see each one of them right where they are, and know them fully, and love them deeply. I pray that they would know You, and Your love, too. Please draw them nearer to Yourself each day, wherever they may be in their spiritual journey at this moment. Fill them with Your joy, hope, and peace.

Thank You that You know the needs and cares of each person in my family. Cover them with Your grace today, Father.

In Jesus’ name,
