Sometimes, life can be tough and full of storms. And when the storms come, they hit us so hard that we lose our balance and stagger in faith.
A lot of times, it could be that we are struggling with our finances, health, illness, family or career and we are at the edge of giving up and we feel God has forsaken us.
The truth is, life is full of ups and downs and it is not always Rosy. Somehow, everyone has experienced the Storms of life and we know how overwhelming it can be.
The only thing that separates the people who let the storms drown them and the ones who make it out of the storm is their ability to hold their heads high.
And of the ways of holding your head high when the storms of life overwhelm you is by saying resting on the shoulders of God and saying prayers that will strengthen you to go on.
In this article, we will be sharing 9 strong prayers you can say to achieve inner peace and calm. Know that these prayers are very powerful and they will make you feel better once you say them.
1) Prayer For Inner Peace And Calm
“Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your blessings in my life and the gift of life. I thank You for preserving my life and the life of everyone around me despite all the challenges we have faced.
Things haven’t been easy for me. I ask that You grant me inner peace so that I might remain calm amid all the chaos, and noises that fill my life. I pray that You still the storms and every trouble that may arise.
When in chaos or storms, most people forget to pray.
They forget that Jesus was amid a Storm once but despite how turbulent it was, he remained calm and commanded the storm to be still.
Asking God in prayer to command your storms to be still is the right thing to do no matter how overwhelmed you might feel at the moment.
God sees our storms and sometimes, he wants us to ask for help. Mention your storms to God and watch him take care of them

“Dear lord, I am going through a very difficult moment now and even at night, sleep is far away from me because my heart is troubled and there is no peace.
I ask that You grant my mind peace and let the troubles cease. You are the one who gives peace of mind and heart to the troubled mind, please grant me, peace lord.
When our minds are troubled, we can affirm that things won’t go well for us.
Most times, the issues of life can take your peace of mind away. Having a life without peace of mind is not the kind of life anyone would want to live.
If you’re having any kind of issues or your mind is troubled, all you have to do is say this prayer.
But, it’s important that you believe in God to restore peace to you, your mind and your heart. Only then you’ll be able to enjoy your life.
You can also say this Bible verse:

In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Saying the prayer for peace and calmness is what you should do when you sense even the smallest discomfort or trouble within and around you.

Grant me the ability to deal with anxiety and know that You are the God who takes care of His people, the only one we can lean on and our solid rock, Amen.”
Life can be mentally draining and exhausting, and 9 out of 10 times, you will want to keep pushing but your strength is low.
It’s even worst when anxiety sets in and you’re constantly anxious about what will happen next. Know that God cares about you and he gives strength to those who ask for it.
Say this prayer when you feel you’re heading down the road where you’re at your lowest and you doubt you can go on.
God is always available for you to lean on him and draw strength from him.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” — Proverbs 3:5-6.
5) Powerful Prayer For Hope In Life
“Heavenly Father, thank You for being the hope for the hopeless. I humbly ask that You fill my heart with hope and give me the ability to see light at the end of the tunnel even when the circumstances around me do not look like it.
I pray that my hope in Your word never gets faint and that I may continue to have hope in You even in my toughest times, Amen.”
One of the things that keep people going in life is HOPE. Without hope, there would be no essence of living.
With God, even the hopeless have hope. They have a reason to keep living because when there’s hope — it’s a sign that things are going to get better.
Your prayers are going to be answered and God will finally fulfill his promises in our lives.
Are the situations or things happening in your life that are weighing you down and you believe you won’t make it through? Turn to God for hope.
6) Strong Prayer For Peace In The Family
“Dear lord, please look upon us with Your love and Your peace. We ask that You shower Your peace on our family and grant us the ability to stay together as one and keep loving one another as You have taught us.
Thank you, Lord, for answering our prayers, Amen.”
The prayer for peace in the family is a very important prayer to say irrespective of the family you find yourself in. Whether it’s your:
- Biological family;
- Family at church;
- Whoever you feel like your family.
Saying this prayer for your family will help strengthen your connection with them.

I ask lord that You give me the ability to keep going on, grant me the inner strength to keep doing the things I should do and restrategize if things do not go as planned.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
The world is full of people with amazing ideas.
People who would have written their names on the sands of time but because they were low in strength, and could not pursue their dreams and ambitions, their dreams died.
The issue of inner strength might sound like a walk in the park but it’s not. It can determine how far one can go.
One of the best ways to renew your strength is by praying to God to give you inner strength and renew your strength whenever you’re at your lowest and he will.
As it says in the Bible, we must belive in Him and He will bless us with peace.
“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.” — Psalm 29:11.

“Heavenly Father, I come before You today with gratitude in my heart. Thank You for the things You have done for me, the things You are doing and the things You will do.
Lord, today, I ask that You bless me with a life of calmness and love. Let Your calm and love envelop me and let me find and experience love among other people too.
Give me the ability to love other people too irrespective of where they come from, Amen.”
Everyone desires calm and love in their lives as it is one of the necessities of life.
But in today’s world, most people have neither calm nor love because they keep looking for it in the wrong places.
If for any reason, you ever feel like your life is in an uproar and no one loves you or cares about you, know that God loves you always.
He cares about even things you think are not important to Him. In God, there’s plenty of peace and love to go around.
Go to Him in prayers and you’ll feel His calm and love embrace you.
If you’re still feeling like you can’t move forward in life you should consider also saying a prayer to protect you from evil spirits.

I ask that You silence the noises in my mind, and my life as a whole and grant me inner peace. The kind of peace that comes with still waters, that my mind may flourish and be anew again.
The feeling of inner peace is second to none.
It is that inner feeling that assures you that no matter how the winds of life blow, God has your back always.
This feeling is not a feeling you can make on your own, you need the help of God to keep you calm despite the challenges you have and will face.
