Some 40 million Americans live with anxiety each year, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of American, and it’s far more prevalent in women than men.Anxiety feeds worry, fear, depression, and stress. Prayers and Bible verses can calm and relieve our anxiety, stress, fear and depression. Let's do it together.
I come to You today to ask for help. You are my everything. Lord, I need rest. I give You my worry. Take it, Lord. I accept Your peace, love, and understanding. Help me to turn to You and not to myself. Help me to stop doing and start trusting. Help me to wait on Your answers, because I know that they are good. Give me wisdom, hope, and peace. Thank you, Lord, for Your patience and grace. I love You, and I know You love me so much more than I could ever imagine.
I come before you. I am laying my fear and anxiety at your feet. I ask that you help me get through all the doubts and fears when I feel as if I am being crushed. Remind me that you are a powerful God. Remind me that I can trust in you. I know I can’t do this on my own. I need you. In the matchless name of Jesus, I pray.
Pray that you would release your burdens and anxiety to God and embrace the peace He wants you to experience. “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”
Dear Heavenly Father, the anxiety within me is consuming me. I feel powerless to stop it. The despair makes me feel helpless, trapped, and so alone. I know You’re with me, but I can’t feel it over my anxiousness. Please show me You’re here. Give me a sign. Quiet my anxious heart. The consolation of knowing You’re near will bring me great joy. I pray this in the name of your son, Jesus. Amen.
Thank God that even in your fear and/or anxiety, God is with you and there to comfort you. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
