For Asa did what was pleasing and good in the sight of the LORD his God. During those peaceful years, he was able to build up fortified cities throughout Judah. No one tried to make war against him at this time, for the LORD was giving him rest from his enemies. (2 Chr 14:2,6 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, I want Your peace and rest in my life. Long times of struggle and loss have brought weariness and pain that only You can heal. Heal my wounds and cause Your peace to prevail over my feelings and circumstances. Remove the roots of anxiety that seek to steal my peace and well-being. I ask You for the peace that only You can give. Do whatever You need to do to make it so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
