As we face daily challenges, many of us struggle to calm our thoughts. We let health issues, relationships, work, financial needs and other important matters cloud our mind. It is in these moments of relentless disruptive thoughts that we can turn to God for a peace of mind.

I know what it’s like waking up at 3 a.m. and not being able to get back to sleep while my mind races to things I need to do and issues that need to be resolved. Nothing helps me calm my thoughts more than talking to God in prayer. I can’t explain it, but I know that prayer works. Praying for peace of mind is one of the most powerful tools we have access to as people of faith.  

In times of great anxiety, prayer makes a difference. When we hand our urgent thoughts over to God, the peace of heaven replaces our worries. I like how it is stated in the Bible:

Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (Philippians 4:6-7) 

The next time you are restless and can’t sleep or focus, stop and pray for God to replace your worries with His peace.

Lord, let your peace overcome my worries and anxious thoughts.
