Prayer For Feeling Overwhelmed
Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I ask that you send the Holy Spirit to bring to my attention very quickly when the enemy is attacking. Help me to be able to stand my ground and claim the authority given to me through Jesus's death and victory on the cross and my acceptance of it. I have applied the blood to myself and to my household, and I know that we have authority over evil. I know that scripture says no weapon formed against us will prosper, so the weapons of discouragement, depression, stress, anxiety and fear, pride, anger, unforgiveness, bitterness, feeling overwhelmed None of those will prosper because we have been bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ. I know the truth, and scripture says the truth will set me free. I am free indeed. In my freedom, I thank you, Abba, for the joy that you've given to me, the peace you have given my soul, the healing you give me for past hurts, and the ability and the authority to exercise my power through your Holy Name over our enemy. I know it's nothing of my own authority, but the authority of your name.
Oh holy Father,
I seek you as I feel completely overwhelmed. I do not have the time or energy to sustain myself. Everything tells me there is too much to do.
Won't you help me, oh Lord?
Show me your hand in control of all things. Let me rest in you. May I trust that you give me eternal blessings always. You alone are sovereign. You alone are the Lord.
So I stop at this moment and look for you, to feel the soft breeze of your merciful love carrying my worries away. You transform me. You change my heart.
I rise up strong again, in CHRIST. I face the world, my path straight and firm, with faith in your Son Jesus.
In his great name I pray,
You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill. Psalm 3:3-4
Dear God, holy and mighty one. You are worthy of all praise, all honor. Your steadfast love amazes me each morning.
When I hear voices around me saying I am not good enough, help me hear Your truth in my heart and give me strength.
Be with those who feel inadequate and doubt if anyone cares about them. When they question their value, give them a deeper sense of worth in Christ, and Christ alone.
Thank You that we don't have to fight for our worth because You have already called us Your children.
In Jesus' name, amen.
Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:12
Father in heaven, You are the God of King David and my God too. You reign forever and over everything.
Bring me peace when I am overwhelmed. I don't know how I can accomplish all of the things I need to get done. Light my path and show me the activities and obligations I can say no to. Help me release the burdens that preoccupy my mind and keep You at bay.
God, please hear the cries of those who feel overwhelmed as they serve You. Many of them don't feel Your presence right now in their lives. Remind them of Your faithfulness.
Thank You for Your nearness and consistency. Thank You for hearing my cries no matter where I am.
In Jesus' name, amen.
Dear Lord, you're just in all your ways
And holy are your works each one
You're near to all that on you call
I call in truth on you alone.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Look upon me with your eyes of mercy. Lay Your healing hand upon me, letting Your life-giving power invade every cell of my body to the depths of my soul; cleansing, purifying, and restoring me to strength for work in Your kingdom.
Right now I am feeling so overwhelmed. I'm overcomed with so many emotions that I don't even know how to define them.
But you know, Father.
You know the intentions of my heart. You know every thought before I even think it. Your Word says that even when I'm not quite sure how to pray, your Holy Spirit is interceding for me with groanings too deep for words.
So I pray, now, that you would take all the anguish within me and replace it with peace.
I pray desperately that you would change the circumstances around me and relieve me of this difficult trial I am going through.
But if that is not your will, God, then change me instead. Help me to see that you are greater than the storms of this life.
I am more than a conqueror through Christ, and He is surely able to overcome anything. I am so grateful that my ability to overcome this life is not dependent on me; you have already won the battle, and I just need to rest in the victory.
The suffering I am facing is heavy. But I am sure that you will bring me through it.
In the worst of my pain, when I am overwhelmed by too many feelings to put into words, help me to remember your many promises.
If you are for me, then nothing can be against me. I affirm this and ask for your guidance in Jesus' name. Amen.
Thank you for revealing my weaknesses in trying to carry the burden and stress of my situation. Forgive me for trying to handle it all on my own and for allowing it to consume and rob me of my peace. I know that anxiety, fear, worry, and anger are not Godly reactions.
Father, my emotions teeter on the edge when things don't go smoothly, and I find my thoughts, and my heart are being pulled in multiple directions. Instead of approaching each event individually, I simply react to them as a whole with no resolve. I want to run away from the problem instead of facing it head-on.
Give me the wisdom and clarity to see the solution to things. Equip me with patience, wisdom, love, compassion, and guidance to be able to overcome and move forward. When I am tempted to run away and hide, I pray that your heavy conviction would be upon me, so I heed your voice and instruction.
Help me to seek refuge and strength in your Word and to gain the right perspective over my situation. I pray that your scripture would refresh my spirit.
Father, forgive me when I try to protect myself from life's trials, and I forget that your truth is the ultimate solution to overcome. I give you my anxiety about things I cannot change. Forgive me for not trusting in you enough to give it all to you, Lord. You are my protector and the one who watches over me.
Help me to invest in myself by reading your Word and spending time in prayer. By doing this, I will be able to handle the chaos of unplanned events better. Restore my mind, my heart, my body, and my soul Father.
Thank you for your mercy and saving grace precious Lord.
I pray these things, in Jesus' holy name, Amen.
