Prayer to be Closer

Father, bring us closer!  We have big dreams...

For Jesus said, "I am the vine, you are the branches.  Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing." -John 15:5

Jesus, we want to remain with You all day, all week, all year. For if far apart from You we can do nothing... than close to You we can do ANYTHING!  Oh we have dreams Lord, help us not to become distracted.  -In Jesus' name, Amen.

Prayer to Accept Peace

Father, take our anxiety and replace it with your peace today. 

Jesus said, "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

How do we do that Lord? You so freely give it to us, yet we don't know how to accept it!   

When we try to solve our own problems help us to say "Jesus, I accept Your peace."   Whenever I am lying awake at night worrying, "Jesus I accept Your peace. When we are trying to fix our anxiety with unhealthy remedies God, let us declare, "jesus I accept Your peace."

-In Jesus' name, Amen
