Ummy – Did they know Christ as their Savior? If they did not, then I do know and feel your pain. If they did, then they are already risen. They are in Heaven right now, yet without a physical body. Jesus is currently the only One in Heaven with a glorified body. When Christ comes again to take us all to Heaven, we will all then receive our eternal bodies.
O Great Spirit of our Ancestors, we raise the pipe to you, to your messengers the four winds, and to Mother Earth who provides for your children. Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect, to be kind to each other so that they may grow with peace in mind. Let us learn to share all the good things that you provide for us on this Earth.

You hold time within your hands, and see it all, from beginning to end. Please keep and carry these precious people in their sadness and loss. Cover them with your great wings of love, give their weary hearts rest and their minds sound sleep. Lord, lift their eyes so that they may catch a glimpse of eternity, and be comforted by the promise of heaven.
I want to thank you so very much for the opportunity offered by your website to have a prayer said in our name at one of the holiest places in the world.  The prayer I submitted was so that I could get a well-paying job with the Government as I was working for the Federal Aviation Administration as a contract employee and was trying to get in as a permanent employee but it didn’t look like that was going to Read More...
O heavenly Father, you give your children sleep for the refreshing of soul and body: Grant me this gift, I pray; keep me in that perfect peace which you have promised to those whose minds are fixed on you; and give me such a sense of your presence, that in the hours of silence I may enjoy the blessed assurance of your love; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
84. I declare my trust in you even as I come to the understanding that trust is a big factor in understanding peace and say no to fear taking a position in my life. I release the reins of my life unto you and ask that you take control of it all, I turn it over unto you and help me to make and see this confession daily that I might be able to continually enjoy peace knowing you are in control. Amen
Hi Sonnie – I have been in yer shoes & I am still grieving the loss of 4 dear friends from suicide … this all happened to me in 5 yrs – it’s an awful ordeal to have to go through . Some days are better then other’s it seems . Prayer & my Faith in God have helped me – being open & honest about what a wreck I am emotionally with friends & family has been a gift I give myself . The healing process is long … I have wept – I have felt guilty – I have been very angry – but God has been there for me every step of the way . I have come to the conclusion that my dear friends were just too sad & weak to hold on to this life . Nothing I could have said or done would have made a difference . God only knows how long our lives will be on this earth . It was His choice to take them to Heaven . I want you to know that I am sending Love & Healing Prayers to you – I hope that in time you will heal – give yourself lot’s of TLC – {{{{ hugs <3 Blessings }}} Just me – Norene a friend who cares ~ 🙂

Lord Jesus Christ, by your patience in suffering you hallowed earthly pain and gave us the example of obedience to your Father’ will: Be near me in my time of weakness and pain; sustain me by your grace, that my strength and courage may not fail; heal me according to you will; and help me always to believe that what happens to me here is of little account if you hold me in eternal life, my Lord and my God.

I ran into the people running Holy Land Prayer during a tour of the holy places in Israel last year. They told me about their site and their commitment to connect believers from around the world to the holiest place on earth. I was surprised because I hadn’t heard about it before. When I came back home, I told members in our community about this service and they loved the idea. We now send a prayer together every month, and we Read More...

95. My confession and prayer are that you lead me in the path for I choose your way and your way is peace. You are my shepherd and the sheep always find comfort in the guidance of the shepherd, besides the still water you lead me, in the green pastures you feed when I follow your instructions which is life unto me. This is comfort and peace unto me I receive it. Amen
Continue to provide me with Your perfect peace of mind that passes man’s understanding and provide me I pray, with the strength to face the difficulties in life that can so often causes our hearts to fail for fear of what is coming on the earth. In the power of Your Spirit give me I pray the strength to stand firm in the evil day – knowing that Your grace is sufficient for all eventualities – for Your strength is made perfect in my weakness.. in my dependence upon You.

In my darkest hour I felt like I would have to crawl to church that’s how low I was. Even through all of my grief, pain and feelings of having absolutely no one to turn to I knew I had to cling to The Lord. I had to be where I could possibly feel some comfort to go on. I found that comfort in His Presence. Once I felt His Presence I could not be without it. I cried out to God on my knees sobbing begging Him to never let His Presence leave me. I couldn’t understand it then but I cried often when I would feel His Presence because it was doing something on the inside of me.
Dear God, it's been 12 years since my mind began to get twisted due to bipolar disorder. I'm constantly depressed and many times and don't deal well with people, I hurt their feelings. The drugs I take are not effective and medicine says that bipolar disorder doesn't have a cure. But I do know that my savior Jesus can heal me and I pray for this every day, I do believe in His miracles.

A prayer for peace may be used to petition God for world peace or for personal inner peace when your own life is troubled. The world’s long history has been full of wars for land, power, and even in the name of peace. Most civilized people want an inner peace toward happiness and care-free lives. The Bible provides verses addressing both issues with the promises, instruction, and prophecies of God.
