I humbly submit that the only place where this "peace" may be found while here on this little sphere is within the pages of Gods living Word and in the person of Jesus Christ.

From this protective cove springs fore faith that no matter what shall come to pass in this brief life. That in the end all will be well and we shall have the answers to all our little questions. (1 Corinthians 15:58; 2 Corinthians 7:10)

Apart from this foundation and anchor one will be subject to the forces of the Babylonian world system and it's evil master. (Hosea 5:4; Judges 17:6; Luke 12:4)

(Psalms 91)
For the believer and doer this one scripture among many within the Bible is our never expiring warranty that if studied carefully you will notice it covers everything that one may encounter while on our sojourn here.

(Psalms 91:5)
Example could the "arrow" mentioned be a modern day rocket or missile?

(Psalms 91:14)
"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

Be of good courage as we hold a promise from He who is TRUE.

In the Lord's freedom there is no fear...........warrior on

My short and sweet answer to a most important question that comes to most, if not all of us, is this: Place your trust and faith in the only place, person and power that can grant your desire of peace in a world of turmoil: the one and only Jesus Christ! Find Him by reading, pondering and meditating on His Word, His book of Truth, THE HOLY BIBLE! Also, by calling out His name and pray to Him to hear your pleas and send you "peace that surpasses all understanding", seek His guidance daily, all day in all that you do, say or think. How, you may ask! Well, I have traveled with people in the sales industry that approached each day with Christ so much the center of their every task that they basically blocked out any distractions, discouragement, or any other 'arrow or dart' that the devil may use against them. It is a "Christ-centered" state of mind that was amazing to be around and learn some life changing, positively driven methods to accomplish positive results. As it turned out, we ended up being a strong witness for Christ. 

Point being is this: God wants each of His children to live our lives as "a living sacrifice for His namesake, to be a witness and Holy example to anyone we meet or minister to. "....therefore, go ye into all the world, witnessing and telling others about the love, grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ". 

Praise God that We have a Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ!

Matthew 11:28 KJV
[28] Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

To me if have complete trust in God and take all your troubles to him, he will give you peace. 
Is there evil in the world? Yes there is. 
Take all your worries to the lord and he will give you rest and peace. 
Another thing you can do is pray for the people or situations that are in the world and God will give you peace. 

Psalm 25:2 KJV
[2] O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
This to me, anyone causing terminal is my enemy and God says.....

In Matthew 5:44 KJV
[44] But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
There is nothing that the lord our God will not do for us. In his own timing and his perfect will. 
No matter what goes on in this world God is always with them that believe on him and that Jesus died and rose again for us all.
