Have you ever experienced going through tough times that almost left you shaken up to your core?
For at least once in our lives, we get fazed by vulnerabilities and temptations that make us question or reflect on our current values.

If you ever find yourself caught up in spiritual warfare, look deep within and seek God’s loving embrace to guide you into finding the positivity you need. Here are seven powerful prayers to help strengthen your mind and faith amid difficulties:
Prayer for the Protection of Mind
God, my Fortress, there is a war in my mind right now. Your Word tells me to surrender everything to You in prayer, and then You will give me Your peace. This precious promise is why I cry out to You now. My mind is a battleground right now, and I need Your protection. Guard my heart and mind through Christ Jesus, and make my mind Your stronghold. Lead me out of the battle into Your safety. Amen.
Prayer for Peace of Mind
Lord, my Peace-bringer, my mind is far from peaceful and is in great turmoil as if controlled by someone else. I know that I need to be tethered to You for my flesh not to have control. Please help me engage with Your Word and keep my mind fixed on You. I need the promised perfect peace that only You can give. Please take control of my mind and bring Your peace. Amen.
Prayer for a Calm Mind
God of all Comfort, I am seeking tranquility for my mind. As I pray and meditate upon Your Word, my mind often drifts to my to-do lists and needs. I pause now from my day. I breathe out a deep sigh from within my soul and ask, will You please quiet my storm? Help me remember all Your goodness to me. Deliver me from anxiety and the battle that rages for control of my mind. Amen.
Prayer for a Guarded Mind
O Jehovah, my God, I know that as long as I live here, I will battle my sinful nature. Recently, that battle is in my mind. I am begging for You to quiet all voices except Your own. Let Your voice be as clear as the birds singing at dawn. Place a wall around me and fight for my mind as I seek to follow after You. I surrender my all to You. Amen.
Prayers for a Pure Mind
Heavenly Father, my mind is exposed daily to things that are not holy or pure, so I know I need more of You Christ. It is also hard to focus on the good when my mind is replaying all the bad things I have done. There is a constant barrage from within and without, and I need Your help. Please guide me to scriptures, places, and people that can help cultivate the mind of Christ within me. Amen.
Prayer for a Fixed Mind
God of Miracles, in my spirit, I know I need more of You in my life. Please help me understand who You are and to experience Your transforming power. My thoughts tend toward those that center on ungodly things. I want to fix my mind on You and Your love, knowing that this will surely bring peace. I pray You would lead and guide me so I may know You deeper. Amen.
Prayer for a Surrendered Mind
O God of Loving Devotion, the knowledge of Your salvation and love for me is a helmet for my mind. My mind should focus on these things instead of the choices and decisions of the past. However, it is the negative thoughts that reign supreme and play over and over in my mind. I am praying Lord Jesus that You would take You rightful place of authority and reign supreme over my mind. Amen.
