Short prayer for guidance

Dear Lord,

I can not see the way ahead and at the moment I feel so confused.
So today I ask that your hand would be upon mine.
Please lead me safely through.
Guide my heart, my mind and body to navigate the way.

I put my trust in you.

Short prayer for strength

Dear Father God,

I know that when I am weak you are my strength. You understand that these are the times when I need to be carried by you. I pray that you would gently renew my strength, speak your words of encouragement into my mind, sing songs of hope over my soul and awaken my heart.

I look to you.

Short prayer for peace

Dear Lord,

Your peace surpasses all understanding.
Like a moment of stillness within a storm,
Like a place of quiet within a crowd,
Or a soft area to rest on a hard journey.
Help me to know your peace in my heart.

Morning Prayer

Short prayer for protection

Dear Lord,

You have placed a helmet of salvation on my head -
that I might have peace of mind.
You have placed a breastplate of righteousness upon my chest -
so that my heart may be protected and safe.
You have placed a shield of faith in my hand -
so that as I journey no evil can stand against me.
You have placed the sword of the spirit in my hand -
that I may release those in need.

You are with me.
Thank you.

Prayer for safety and protection

(the prayer poem in the film above)

May the three enfold you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Hold you safe and hold you strong

May the three encompass you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Encircle your life each day and night

May the three protect you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Guard your door and keep each gate

May the three watch over you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Still your heart and calm all fear
