The Peace of Jesus!
This prayer focus is directed to those who worry and need the peace of Jesus!
As a non-Christian, I grew up in an environment of worry. However, when Jesus entered my life, His peace manifested. Whenever worry comes to the surface, I can now trust in the Prince of Peace, for Jesus is my peace!
Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Insights from John Marino.
"Is the evidence of being a good parent the fact that we worry about our children? Should we worry about the future and our place in it? Is worry wrong?
Worry is simply allowing the fear of what might happen to take over. Fear of the future does nothing but weaken us today.
Fear and the resulting worry are evidence of our failure to recognize God’s promise of protection. Peter walked on the water until he looked around and doubted.
Why worry when He has promised to help and hold us. (Isaiah 41:10)
Any doubt that we have experienced is a result of our own lack of faith and not a result of His lack of Faithfulness.
When we trust His Faithfulness and stand on His promises, we find the Peace of God. You can’t worry about the future and trust God’s Faithfulness at the same time, so pick one."
Think about these portions of God’s word.
26 Look at the birds! They don’t worry about what to eat—they don’t need to sow or reap or store up food—for your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are.
27 Will all your worries add a single moment to your life?
28 "And why worry about your clothes? Look at the field lilies! They don’t worry about theirs.
29 Yet King Solomon in all his glory was not clothed as beautifully as they.
"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
Suggested areas of prayer for yourself and others:
(1) Be fully convinced in God’s Word that He will do what He said. (Being fully convinced keeps fear and worry out.)
(2) Take the time to observe the birds and watch how God feeds them.
(3) Realize that God’s children are more important than the birds and God will take care of His children. (Watch the video below)
