In times of great uncertainty, we can turn to God and pray. Our prayers are incredibly important. In fact Jesus said they’ve got the power to move mountains (Mark 11:23). We may feel sometimes that our solo prayer doesn’t do much good, but the Holy Bible tells us otherwise.
When the Holy Spirit presses on your heart to pray for peace — peace in your own life and peace for the entire world — don’t hesitate. You are being called to assist Heaven in one of the most important tasks here on earth. Jesus came to give us peace, and everything comes through prayer. Here is a powerful prayer for peace (both individually and for the whole world) that you can pray anytime. May God honor you for your intercession, your faith, and your obedience to assist.
Powerful Prayer for Peace
“Lord we pray for the ability to be gentle;
the power to be forgiving;
the patience to be understanding;
and the perseverance to accept the consequences
of holding on to what we believe to be right.
Heavenly Father, help us to place all our trust in the power of goodness to overcome evil, and the power of love to overcome hatred.
We come before You today, praying for clear vision so as to see;
the unwavering faith to believe in a world free from violence,
a world in which fear shall no longer lead men or women to commit injustice,
nor a world where selfishness makes them bring suffering upon others.
Help us to offer our whole life and thought and energy
to the task of making peace,
praying always for the inspiration and the power of the Holy Spirit
to fulfill the destiny for which we and all men and women were created.
In Your good and Holy Name we pray this prayer.
Prayer for World Peace
I am praying fervently for world peace today.
Jesus said, ‘when I am lifted up on the earth, I will draw all men to myself.’
As I lift my thoughts and prayers to the high consciousness of peace, I help lift the thoughts of all people across the entire world to peace as well.
Father, what a blessing to know that I can add to the peace of this world by way of my prayer to You.
I request, dear Lord, that my prayers would reach out and assist in untangling all nations and people of the earth.
I know that the same feeling of peace that is within my Spirit resides in people everywhere — no matter who they are or where they live.
No matter the beliefs we profess, each person has been specially created with the peace of God at the core of his or her being.
Your peace, God, has the power to resolve all disagreements and dissolve all differences.
Your divine peace brings great freedom to all.
My prayer and my vision of the world is of a peaceful world.
As I hold to this prayer and vision, I remember that peace begins with me.
Help me to be strong; to be wise; to be loving; and to walk always in Your will and in Your ways.
I pray this all in the great Name of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Matthew 21:22: If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
Psalm 107:28-30: Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distresses. He caused the storm to be still, so that the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they were quiet, so He guided them to their desired haven.
