Prayer For Fear And Anxiety
You are the Prince of Peace. You came to give us your peace. It's nothing like the world gives. It is peace born in the freedom we have in you, a gift to all God's childrento guard our hearts and minds.
I can't escape the troubles of this world. I may face financial difficulties, relationship breakdowns, a health crisisso many scary challenges. But you tell me to take heart, to be encouraged, because you have overcome the world. You have overcome all the things that would discourage and defeat us. I am grateful for your peace that is beyond all my circumstances.
Sometimes I'm such a worry wart.' I fuss about all sorts of thingswhat I will eat and wear today, and the many choices I can make. But worse, I stew over things on tomorrow's calendarconcerns that aren't even here yet! That is so foolish.
Your words were clear, Jesus. I am never to worry about what's going to happen tomorrow, because you haven't given me the grace to bear up under tomorrow's concerns until I get there. So I will not borrow worries from the future, Lord. Rather, I will invest in faith. I will choose to look for your hand working on my behalf todayand trust you, in simple faith, for my future.
I am grateful for your sacrifice on the cross to give me life and bring me true freedom. Sometimes I still feel chained to fears and worries when I focus on situations rather than you, my Savior.
Teach me to throw all my anxieties where they belonginto your loving arms. You understand the temptation to fear and worry, and you can handle my concerns. You cared so much for me, you died to enable me to overcome the power of sin, my selfish flesh and Satan's lies. I can come to you with confidence, giving you all my cares, knowing that you loved me on the cross, love me still, and will love me forever. As I cast my cares on you, you will sustain me with your love and not allow my confidence in you to be shaken.
Sometimes it seems like I take my worries everywhere except to you. I hear people say, God's got this! But how often do I live like I believe it?
I know you hear me, Lord, when I bring my concerns to you. You care about what is going on in my life, and I know you want to give me a clear, sound mind. Forgive me when I allow anxious thoughts to cloud my thinking. Help me take my anxieties to you in every circumstance, believing you will intervene and work out your eternal purposes. Give me a thankful hearta heart that says, I am grateful for your lovingkindness to me, Father. I know you will work out your plans for my growth, others' good, and your glory.
Praise God, I pray for the strength to be thankful for today and the moment, to enjoy the now in the midst of challenges, and to thank God for his favor and grace. Lord, help me to focus on what the Holy Spirit is doing in my life and starve the flesh. Praise God, I am not alone in my fight against fear; I have the Holy Spirit and the angels. The Holy Spirit and the angels are standing with me and in me. Thank you, Lord, for the one-step victories in my life, not perfect obedience, not perfect performance, not human perfect peace, not my righteousness, but the righteousness by faith in Jesus and his grace. I thank you, Jesus, that you make allowance for my weaknesses failures, sins, doubts, unbelief, and when fear controls my thoughts and actions. Help me to reject arguing or debating with the devil, my flesh, and my guilty conscience and fall upon the love, grace, mercy, peace, and the righteousness of Jesus who is our shield and redeemer. Thank you, Lord, for helping me overcome and deliver me from my fear of (enter in the areas of your struggle). Help me to respect my enemies and be as wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.
