Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer beyond our worry


In a season when every heart should be happy and light, many of us are struggling with the heaviness of life—burdens that steal our joy. Our inner voice whispers, 

"I am not enough!” 
"I must do better!" 
"My sin is so big."
"I wish I was more like..."
"Why can't I overcome...?"

We need your peace, Jesus. We confess that our hearts are too often filled with wonder of a different kind: wondering when when things will get better, when we will be better. In a world where worry prevails, stir up that good news again. Make it real in our hearts. We need Your joy and peace more than ever, right now. 

Thank You for the gift of Jesus, God with us, the Word made flesh. We not only need Your peace and joy; Lord, we desire it. You’ve promised rest for the weary, victory for the battle-scarred, peace for the anxious, and acceptance for the brokenhearted—not just at Advent, but every day of every year. 

Your name is still called 
“The Mighty God,” 
“The Everlasting Father,” 
“Prince of Peace.”

We know that peace on earth can only come when hearts find peace with You. You are still our Joy. You are still our Peace. You are Lord of lords and King of kings. Keep our minds and our hearts on You alone.
