More than anything else I think, today, we need peace.
Many of us are beyond concerned. Everyone had an opinion online. The TV is telling us this or that. We wonder where things are headed?
More than anything else, today, we need: peace and prayer.
Tackling prayer is easy, we ask: Father, you will be done.
Peace can feel more elusive. This my reasoning for including 7 verses of peace for you today. I advise that you read them aloud and that you pray them over yourself.
7 Verses that Bring Peace
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Ps. 46:10)
Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. (Ps. 100:3)
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:6-7)
The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, because he trusts in You. (Is. 26:3)
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; do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, for to this you were called as members of one body. And be thankful. (Col. 3:15)
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. (Nu. 6:26)
Prayer: May the peace of God reign in your heart today, no matter what you face, no matter what you see. May you remember who you are in Christ and whose you are. May you remember that God is in charge. May you rest in knowing that He has the whole world in His hands. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Isaiah 26:3 is one of my favorite verses. Though I mostly read the ESV now, I love how the KJV puts it: “whose mind is stayed on Thee.” When I start to sorry or fret, it’s a sign my thoughts have strayed from Him and I need to direct them back .
Amen. Thank you for these verses today.
I love the strong words of Colossians 3:15. Peace can rule in its quiet way.
I think you’re exactly right about us needing peace today. Thank you for sharing these scriptures. John 14:27 has been one of my favorites for a long time. I appreciated all of them anew this morning. Thanks for hosting, and have a blessed week Kelly.
I’m always happy to read more verses on peace. Peace is something we all chase because we all need it. We don’t always find it where we first look, but when we have it, we know it.
Thank you so much for sharing this today. I really appreciate you.
