“God, as I go about my busy day today, I ask that you would give me a sense of peace and calm. Help

me not to get stressed out, worried or frantic by all the problems I see around me. Instead, please give

me a sense of peace and calm that comes from knowing You are in control, You have it all figured out,

and my best is enough because I can always trust You to take care of issues and situations I can’t.

Please help me keep my eyes on You today, not all the negativity in the world around me.”
