Daily Prayer

Please set aside time each day to pray for 2-3 minutes. This week's prayer starter is:

"Oh Lord, sometimes my insides feel like a battle zone, where missiles are falling too close to home. Other times, I'm caught in an endless storm, with thoughts flying out of control. Confusion reigns and defeat creeps in to steal my joy. I need your peace-the deep-down-in-your-heart kind that stays with me day and night and speaks confidently into the wind. Calm my anxious spirit, Lord..."
