Prayer For Stressful Times
Dear Heavenly Father, there is such a lot of stress in our family and I just pray that it would simply stop. It seems that never a day goes past without someone getting stressed out, and we are all getting so weary and worn out.
Please help our family I pray, to get on with each other and Lord, I do pray that the build up of stress and tension would stop, and that we start to live with each other in the way that You meant families to live.
Lord, I love my family and I know that this is not good for any of us to be in this constant state of pressure and nervous tension. Give me wisdom I pray, to know how to deal with this in the future and to know what to do and to say, or what not to say, to help the rest of the family release their stress, so that we may learn to live together in godly unity. I ask this in Jesus' name,
Dear Lord Jesus, You know how worried I get about school and how often I feel so stressed-out about attending, that I feel quite sick and ill, and sometimes even get ulcers in my mouth. Lord, You know how often feel intimidated by the other students and worry that they wont like me, and I know that You also understand how difficult I find some of the lessons. Please help me Lord.
Help me to give my worries to You. Help me to trust You to bring the right friends into my life and help me not to feel intimidated by others, for You have shown me that their rudeness and unkindness is so often because of their their own insecurities and worries
Lord, I know that I am truly blessed to have been saved by grace through faith in Jesus, and I know that it is wrong for me to allow the pressures of school-life to be exhibited as stress reaction. So teach me I pray, how to cope with stress and use it to my advantage and to Your glory. This I ask in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, You know the concerns there are at my place of work, and the stress it is causing to me and all my colleagues, and I just want to hand it over to You, because I know that it is not Your will for any of Your children to be plagued with these sorts of stresses and worries.
I do thank You for giving me this job so that I can properly provide for my family, but the increasing tension which is being caused by the numbers of cut-backs and lay-offs, together with the extra work-load that is being placed on those of us that are left, is causing a lot of uncertainty and a wave of anxiety seems to have permeated through the work force as well as the managers.
Lord, I know that my times and my future is in Your hands and so is my job, and I ask that You would keep me from all unnecessary worry and stress about redundancy or my increasingly work-load. Father, I hand all my stresses to You. My hope and my trust is in You, because You have promised to supply all my needs, according to Your riches in glory. Praise Your holy name.
Dear Lord Jesus, there seems to be so much to do as we prepare to move and so little time to get everything done, that I find that I am exhibiting what can only described as, moving stress'. And Lord there is so much expense that is connected with moving, and deadlines to be met, that I am beginning to stress about the cost of this move as well.
Please dear Lord, please calm my troubled mind and fill me to the brim with Your perfect peace that passes understanding. Undertake for all the many preparations that need to be made, the deadlines we have been given and all the various costs that will have to be met.
Give us Your grace as we seek to undertake all that has to be done, like the evaluations, carriers, advocates and all the other little things that need to be covered. Help us not to overlook anything, but gently calm our hearts and take away all the stresses and strains of moving we pray, and may we depend on You and not on ourselves in all things. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Dear Lord, I know that the holiday season is supposed to be a time of relaxation and enjoyment, but I find a whole range of emotions welling up inside me, as the holiday approaches, and I almost find that I am in a panic, with all the preparations that need to be dealt with.
Lord, I know that holidays should be a time of celebration and joy and yet too often, I feel overwhelmed and unable to cope with all the things that have to be done, both before and during the holiday, and I find that I constantly worry that everything will be alright. Lord, I know that this is not what You want for Your children, and I ask for Your help in the approaching holiday season.
Lord Jesus, You have promised that Your strength in made perfect in our weakness and that Your grace is sufficient for all the circumstances of life, including this holiday-time. Keep me I pray, from any anxiety and stress during this holiday time, and help me to rest in the knowledge that You have everything in control and that Your grace is sufficient for me. This I ask in Jesus' name,
Loving Father, I need You in my life because it is so full of stress and problems at the moment, and I am incapable of sorting them out by myself. Please help me Father.
Things have piled up more and more over the last few months and I don't know what to do. But I do know that You told us to come to You if we are burdened and heavy laden and You will give us rest. I come to You now. I come to You, Jesus, and ask You to carry every single difficulty in my life, for they are becoming too burdensome for me to carry alone.
Thank You that You will never leave us or forsake us, and that You have promised to be with us in all circumstances of life. Thank You, Lord,
Lord, thank you that you want us to cast our cares on you. Thank you that there is nowhere I can go that you are not there with me. Thank you for having a hold of my life, even as I feel like everything is crumbling around me.
Lord, I confess that I have let stress take a hold of my life, rather than You. I have let stress control my mood, my attitudes and my actions. Lord, I repent of this! Please Father, help me see what is stressful in my life and hand it over to You. Help me not let the stress win out. Help me actively think on Your goodness to me.
I am so hopeful for my eternity with you, Lord, where there will be NO more stress! Help me look back on all the ways You have rescued me from my stressful moments, and look in hope to the future where You will one day rid all stress, forever.
Help me live boldly in the truth of Your goodness and power today. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Father, equip me with the strength and courage I need to overcome these stressful situations in my life.
Thrust me forward into triumphant victory as the stresses of this world just swiftly fall away at the sound of Your great name! In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen!
