Prayer for good news
(a prayer to hear the right outcome about something)

As I wait, I rest in you, I lean into your grace, I pull up the covers of love and I lay my head on the pillow of your hope.

I pray for good news, yet I shelter in this place,
For under your Almighty presence I know that I am safe.
Thank you that no matter what the outcome may be, you promise peace.


Prayer to receive good health news

Father God,

Come enfold me, heart, mind, body and soul. I feel so scared that the health test will bring bad news. I need your presence. Please come Holy Spirit. I know that your love for me displayed through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, is enough to hold me. You are with me, I am safe with you and you dwell within me.

Thank you Lord.

A beautiful daily prayer for drawing close to God with:-

Prayer for inner peace and calm
(a prayer for calmness with nerves and anxiety)

Holy Spirit, please encircle me,
Come hold me safe and secure.
Wrap my mind up with your truth
Guide my thoughts and calm my fears.
Steady my emotions,
Lord that you would guide my feelings,
May I not be overcome by upset.
Sustain my soul,
With vision for the future,
And hope for tomorrow.

I need you.
