Today I wanted to share this simple prayer to overcome anxiety.The feeling of anxiety can be vicious in its attack. While at times, it gradually builds from circumstances, other times, it appears suddenly, out of nowhere.
Though I personally have only experienced bouts of anxiety and not more serious seasons of continual anxiousness, I believe prayer has been the critical element in overcoming any battles I have faced with anxiety.
A Prayer to Overcome Anxiety
In this space of total anxiety,
I’m praying to you, the God of all.
Jesus, I need you so much.
The weight of this world consumes my heart
And my spirit is confused.
I know you are not the god of confusion;
You are the God of order, love and peace.
I pray you would restore order right now in me.
May my mind perceive
that you make me sound.
May my soul receive
that you give me strength.
May my heart believe
that you show me love.
Thank you for the relief of an unburdened heart.
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. I Corinthians 14:33
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
