Prayer for Inner Peace and for following the Call of Christ

Lord, please put your peace in my heart. I'm worried and anxious. My mind races and obsesses. I can't help thinking about my problems. And the more I think about them, the more depressed I become. I feel like I'm sinking down in quicksand and can't get out. Calm me, Lord. Slow me down, put your peace in my heart.

No matter what problem I have, Lord, you are bigger, you are more powerful than it is. So I bring my problem to you. I know what I want. I know my will. I do not know yours. I do not know how You will use this problem for my salvation. I do not know what good You will work out at this evil. But I trust You. I trust Your Goodness and your Wisdom. So I place myself in your hands. Please fill my heart with peace.

Lord, I thank you for the gifts you have given me, especially for life, love, family and friends.  Help me to know myself better and to know my talents, as I pray, study and decide on my life's work.
Help me to see and understand the path you open for me. Help me choose a life's work, which will be in response to my potential and your love for me.
If I am being invited to follow you as Your Missionary, give me a generous heart to respond to your challenging call and the strength to follow you wherever you lead me.
