Jesus, Calm the Storm Within Me

Jesus, calm the storm within me, hold me close to your heart.

Life tends to get in the way, tearing me apart from you. I rely on myself when I know I should be trusting you with my heart, soul, and mind.

Bring me back to you, Father. Bring me closer to your side.

Remind me that I am yours and that you have a good plan for me. I need to be closer, God. Forgive me for the times I fall. Forgive me for my doubt and fear.

Help me to rest in the love and peace that only you can bring, I know your will is to bring me good, not harm all the days of my life.

Restore my peace, once again. I feel like I’ve fallen away. My prayers feeling nothing but muttered words. I’m asking you to remind me of who I am in you.

Remind me of your sovereignty, of your grace, of your justice, of your love. When a world around me gives into pride, lust, anger, and rebellion, set my feet firm upon the rock that is higher than I.

Restore peace to me. Restore love to me. Show me the depths of my worth, that you created me wonderfully and fearfully.

I am nothing without you, and nothing apart from you. There is nowhere I can go to escape your love for me. How deep is the Father’s love for us? How vast beyond all measure! I could reach the corners of the earth, the deepest pit, the highest sky and there you would be.

You hold me in your love. You make everything new to me. You reveal things to me in my spirit. You speak softly to me of your will for me.

I tend to listen to the clanging symbols around me. I hear the shouts that try to distract my mind. But when I find myself in the stillness, away from the crowds and people, I hear your still, small voice speak to me, whispers of love and grace.

Help me to get alone with you, Father. Help me to rely more on you rather than the situation I’m going through.

Remind me that your hand is upon me and will never leave me. Remind me that you always be by my side and that you’re never leaving.

You are the healer of my heart, Lord.

Remind me to walk in your love daily, and to rely upon you fully. I’m holding onto you. You are the giver and taker of life itself. I’m trusting you to hold my heart and to be my shelter from the storm that rages within me.
