Everyone at some point is going to experience anxiety for whatever reason.
Anxiety can stem from work, finances, relationships, sickness, parenting, and even things happening in the world.
But the word of God consistently reassures us of God being there for us through everything because He cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7)
So when your heart is troubled and you can’t stop worrying, just turn to the Lord in prayer and tell him all your problems. (Philippians 4:6)
While you are waiting for God to change things, it’s easy to live worried, stay focused on the problem and think about why it’s not going to work out.
Clear your mind. Isaiah said, “If you’ll keep your mind on Him, He will keep you in perfect peace”. So all you have to do is to keep your mind on God.
Worry turns your focus away from God, so instead, give thanks to God and trust that He has a plan for you and everything is going to work out in the end.
Giving thanks turns your focus towards God. So no matter how bad things are, no matter how big your problems may seem, find something to thank God for.
Below are 8 prayers for anxiety you can pray, when worry takes over you and you don’t know what to say.
