“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; I do not give it to you as the world does.” — John 14:27 NET
And the world is passing away with all its desires.—Surely people go through life as mere ghosts. Surely they accumulate worthless wealth without knowing who will eventually haul it away.—So what benefit did you then reap from those things that you are now ashamed of? For the end of those things is death.
“Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things, but one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the best part; it will not be taken away from her.”—And I want you to be free from concern.
“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In the world you have trouble and suffering, but take courage – I have conquered the world.”—Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way.—The Lord bless you and protect you; The Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

The Spirit helps us in our weakness. — Rom 8:26 NET
“The Advocate, the Holy Spirit.”—Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God?—For the one bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort … is God.
For we do not know how we should pray, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes on behalf of the saints according to God’s will.
For he knows what we are made of; he realizes we are made of clay.—A crushed reed he will not break, a dim wick he will not extinguish.
“The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He takes me to lush pastures, he leads me to refreshing water.
John 14:26, 1 Cor 6:19, Phil 2:13, Rom 8:26-27, Ps 103:14, Isa 42:3, Matt 26:41, Ps 23:1-2
