A Prayer & Responsive Reading for Peace, Balance & Walking in the Spirit



Honestly, I can’t believe 

I’m in this Cycle once again,

I thought through Faith and Body Trust®️

I’d overcome this from within.

My daily schedule—overloaded; Mind/Body/Spirit—spread too thin!

So I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Help me to Walk in the Spirit.


Thought I was all done with perfection;

Learned the art of saying no.

Thought I had set much better limits 

On what I’d do and where I’d go.

Thought my maturity would keep me; 

Yet there’s still so much room to grow.

So I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Give me Peace and give me Balance.


With this here Grief, 

And these Life Storms, 

It often pours each time it rains;

For the winds will not give up, 

And these here floods, will not restrain.

My mind and brain—fatigued and tired, 

My oldish body—racked with pain.

So I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Help me to Walk in the Spirit.


Sometimes I’m doing far too much, 

And yet it feels like not enough.

My spiritual scale is overloaded, 

Tipping at all the temporal stuff.

I want to stand planted and firm, 

Even when life gets hard and rough.

So I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Give me Peace and give me Balance.


Listen here, my spirit’s willing, 

But my flesh is very weak.

My anxiety and stress levels—

At an all-time, record peak.

I have been praying to the Lord but 

I don’t always hear Him speak.

So I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Help me to Walk in the Spirit.


I work real hard for my money 

‘Cause I need to pay my bills.

I’ve been involved with so much lately, 

That I don’t have time to kill.

My spiritual tank is almost empty, 

I desperately need to be refilled.

So I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Give me Peace and give me Balance.


I have been a friend to many 

But for me, there’s just a few,

And I never want to burden them 

With what I’m going through.

My life feels like a mystery, 

And I am searching for each clue.

So I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Help me to Walk in the Spirit.


Lord, I repent for missing You, 

when you called for me today.

I repent for unread scriptures 

And the times I didn’t pray.

I will seek You for direction; 

Light my path along the way.

And I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Give me Peace and give me Balance.


Come Holy Spirit—Comfort Me,

Jesus, assume the Leading role!

For You’re the Source of all my needs,

And Trusting You—I am made whole.

I now allow the Peace of God 

To Live—Flowing throughout my Soul!

And I pray, 

Please Lord, 

Help me to Walk in the Spirit.


Listening to My Triune God,

Trusting my body—That’s how I roll. 

By faith, I’m resting in the fact, that 

My Creator’s in control.

Focused—I press beyond distractions  Because Heaven is my goal.

And I pray,

Thank You for my Spirit Walk, 

For Peace and Balance.
