A Prayer When Worry Takes Your Breath away

Lord, I need Your peace — YOU are my peace. Please make Your presence known to me. In Your presence is unspeakable joy, resounding peace, and my worry melts away. In Your presence I am safe and secure — I am held by Your warm embrace and I can rest.

If I shouted my praise to the highest mountain — it would not be enough. If I literally spent my life worshiping You from sunup to sundown — it would not be enough. You alone are worthy of all praise. It is You, Lord, that I love.
