“The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26, NASB
Loving Father in heaven,
Your peace encompasses so much more than I realized: tranquility, a satisfied condition, and a sense of well-being.* How fitting and perfect You are, knowing what I need and always ready to supply.
Renew a tranquil spirit within me. Let me view life with a calm eye, resting in the assurance You have everything under control. You hold a plan, and my part is to fit into it rather than striving after my own.
Satisfy my heart—fill me with contentment in You alone. Remove the endless yearning within, the aching for more.
Grant me an underlying and overreaching sense of well-being. Focus my attention on all You’ve accomplished for me through Christ and every blessing I possess in Him. Open my eyes to understand that tomorrow doesn’t hold the fulfillment of my dreams…
You give me peace, LORD, as I turn my eyes on You, for suddenly I see Your glorious face already turned toward mine.
