Bible verse for January 11 Prayer
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7 NIV)
Reflection for your January 11 Prayer
Imagine your heart, all by itself. Now, imagine your heart surrounded by the following words:
True. Honorable. Right. Pure. Lovely. Admirable. Excellence. Worthy of praise.
Imagine those words surrounding your heart.
Those words are from Philippians 4:8, just a verse after our guiding verse for today. When God tells us His peace will protect our hearts, his peace is evident in these words. If we surround ourselves with those words above, we will be filled with God’s peace.
1. Draw a heart. What words are currently around your heart? Write them down around it. (Examples could be fear, anxiety, joy, distractions, etc.)
2. Circle the ones that are not Biblical truth. For example, we should be joyful. But if we are anxious, circle it. Use Bible Gateway’s search bar to type in your word to see if there are Bible verses to match it.
3. Write down those Bible verses. Pick one or two to be your verse for this month. Spend time journaling it, studying it, or even memorizing it.
January 11 Prayer
Dear Lord, Thank you for providing your truths in Your Word. Allow our hearts and minds to be guarded by the peace of you, which is beyond human understanding. Let your peace radiate through me today to a point that it makes people stop and ask why I am so joyful. Let my actions always point back to you, O God. Amen.
Have disappointments left you shattered? Maybe you’ve found yourself saying, “It’s not supposed to be this way.” This book discusses exactly that from a Biblical standpoint.

Jessie, thank you for this mini-devo. I’m breathing in the comfort of these peace-filled words at 3am. I love the visual of v.8 and a heart surrounded by truths. I’m helping my daughter with new baby and toddler. Praying these verses over this sweet, growing family.
