Prayer for inner peace and happiness
Your love in me is like a flame that burns within my heart,
Giving light to all I do and everything that I am.
Sometimes it dances in my soul as I praise your name.
At times it dims or flickers low when hard times come my way.
Even in the darkest hours I sense your light afresh,
Reminding me to trust in you.
Be still and wait and rest my soul!
For every flame needs gentle fuel.
Your love is the key,
For keeping this little candle burning alight in me.
It guides my life, my thoughts, my dreams,
And shines for all to see.
Thank you for the happiness and peace you give to me.
The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
a prayer attributed to Reinhold Neibuhr, American writer and theologian (1892-1971). Read the full version of this prayer here.
"Don't worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel."
(Philippians 4:6-7, CEV)
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
(John 14:27, NIV)
"You, Lord, give perfect peace
to those who keep their purpose firm
and put their trust in you.
Trust in the Lord forever;
he will always protect us."
(Isaiah 26:3-4, GNT)
