- To Close, let's pray the Lord's Prayer with conviction
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
We trust that these prayers for peace have been a blessing to you and that you take at least one prayer for peace, take it as a daily prayer or morning prayer, meditate on the promises contained in it, and say it with confidence until your peace is fully instated by the Lord. It is our prayer that your mind will be at peace and that The Lord will fill your mind and life with conviction and the reassurance that He will never leave you or forsake you. May your mind be at peace in Jesus' Mighty Name, Amen!
You can also use these to make intercessory prayer on behalf of your family, friends, coworkers or anyone who may be experiencing a hard time or difficulty or someone who is in need of peace. To pray for them, just change the object in the prayer from me/my to him/her, or the person's name, etc. Each of these prayers can be used powerfully as an intercessory prayer on behalf of someone.

Here's a video on praying for peace by Pastor McKnight.
Here's Another Prayer Video for Peace.
When you're at peace, even when you're going through a difficult time, you have peace within your mind. Anxious thoughts are far from you. Your hope is built on nothing less but Jesus' blood and righteousness. Your life is overflowing with hope, expectancy, and peace in the Lord.
When you're at peace, you are confident in the justice of God, the power of the Holy Spirit, and your belief, and trust at this point is secure. Your will is submitted to Him and God's presence and eternal peace, radiate through your being, giving you comfort.
God wants you to have this peace.
One of the greatest areas of peace is in knowing Him and fellowshipping with Him. This is, in fact, the peace of eternal life. The Lord Jesus said it like this: He says that to know Him and to know Jesus Christ whom He has sent is eternal life (John 17:3). Our prayer is that you may have God's peace and eternal life in Jesus' Mighty Name.
Here's a short bible verse about peace:
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
May the Lord Jesus Christ, by His grace, give you great peace.
