Prayer for Anxiousness

Dear God,

I come before You with a heavy heart, burdened by feelings of anxiousness and overwhelm. I know that You are sovereign over all things and that You care for me deeply, but in this moment, it is hard for me to trust in Your goodness and Your plan.

Please help me to lay my worries at Your feet and trust in Your unfailing love. Bring peace to my heart and mind, and give me the strength to face each day with courage.

I pray for Your wisdom to guide me as I navigate through these difficult times, and for Your healing touch to bring me comfort and rest.

I also lift up to You those who are struggling with anxiety alongside me. Please bring them Your peace and Your love, and help us to support one another through these trying times.

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