Prayer for Anxiety

Almighty God,

I come to You today feeling anxious and overwhelmed. I am struggling to find peace and calm in the midst of all the worries and stresses in my life. Please help me to trust in You and to remember that You are in control.

I pray that You would give me the strength and courage to face each day with hope and faith. I pray that You would fill me with Your peace and joy, and that You would help me to find rest and relaxation in Your presence.

Please wrap Your loving arms around me and reassure me of Your constant love and care. Help me to cast all my anxieties on You, knowing that You are able to handle them far better than I can.

I pray for Your wisdom and guidance as I navigate the challenges and uncertainties of life. Help me to rely on Your strength and to trust in Your plan for my life.

Thank You for being my loving and faithful God. I pray all of these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
