Prayer For Perfect Peace
(To the tune of “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”)
I need Your peace, dear Lord, oh how I dearly cry,
Fill me with strength and grace before I die!
I’m at the end of hope, help me to cling and cope,
Hold me in Your arms and bear me up high.
Help me to look to You and cling to You daily,
Help me to trust in faith, and cast fears away,
Grant me your perfect peace, please fill my mind with ease,
Comfort and strengthen my heart, Lord, I pray.
Father, I’m trembling, and troubled, and worried;
I give these cares to you, oh take them away!
Help me to lean on you, I’m wearied with struggling,
Fill my aching heart with Your peace today.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on Thee:
because he trusteth in Thee.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
