May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.”
Pray for peace within your home; that it might reenergize you each day as you prepare for battle with the darkness outside your walls.
In order to develop and maintain peace at home you must not bring darkness and drama from the outside across your threshold. You must leave the nonsense outside, and demand that others leave their nonsense on the side of your door that faces the world.
Let your home be your place to be most vulnerable. Let it be the place where you come to relax, unwind, heal, be comforted, and prepared for the next day of unknowns.
Pray for internal peace—within your mind and heart; free from the burden of weight that we carry when we internalize our fears and allow the attacks from the enemy as well as our fragile mortal egos to get in the way, and get the best of us. That weight on the shoulders of someone with conditional or limited faith can lead to a break down and collapse. Imagine what it can do to someone who lacks faith, who doesn’t believe?
Pray to our Heavenly Father to hear His voice and that He bring you comfort through even the biggest and boldest attacks.
Father I pray for peace within my life, within my home, and within my mind and heart. Free me from the unnecessary weight of my fears. Lift me Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray to You Father. Amen.
