Prayer for the Anxiety

Dear Lord,

I come to You today with a heavy heart, feeling overwhelmed and anxious. I know that You promise to never give me more than I can handle, but sometimes it feels like the worries and fears of this world are just too much to bear.

I pray for Your peace and comfort to fill my heart and mind. Help me to trust in Your plan for my life and to let go of the things that are causing me stress and anxiety.

I know that You are sovereign and in control, and I pray that You would give me the strength and the courage to face whatever challenges come my way. Help me to find rest and contentment in You, knowing that You are always with me and that You will never abandon me.

This I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
