Lord, teach me to control my temper and master my fears as I parent my children. I am full of anxiety and despair right now, but You are more than able to take what has happened and use it for Your good. Help me not to act unwisely and blow things out of proportion. Give me Your peace that passes all understanding to keep my heart and my mind in You. Help me to calm down, so that I may react with kindness, wisdom, and gentleness, and move forward, giving thanks in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
Prayer of the Day
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
—1 Peter 5:7
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
