Chapel of Peace

The Abbey is a place to come to God. We have spaces set aside for moments of private prayer or quiet reflection. We are here to offer you our support. Our Duty Chaplains in the Abbey are always happy to chat or pray with you.

A Prayer for Peace of Mind and Heart

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit”. Psalm 34:18

Lord, I come to you,
feeling confused and bewildered.
My world has been shaken,
my hope has been dimmed.
Fragments of grief lie all around me,
waves of fear break over my life.
Help me know your presence of calm,
bring light to my darkness,
and peace to my heart.

Heal my heart and my mind,
from crushing thoughts, fear and anxiety.
Give me hope for my future,
restore my troubled soul.
Loneliness and grief can threaten to overwhelm me.
Protect me Lord,
give me comfort and relief.

Hold me close and lead me to security,
where your love breaks in and guides me to peace.
Order my steps, bring courage and stillness.
Help me to trust.
Help me dare to believe,
that in the pain and in all of the heartache,
You are still God
and You will bring peace.
