Prayer for the Anxious

Heavenly Father,

We come to You today seeking Your peace and guidance. We know that You are with us always and that You care deeply for us. Lord, we are feeling anxious and overwhelmed by the challenges we are facing. We ask that You would give us Your peace that surpasses all understanding, and help us to trust in You.

We ask that You would give us the strength and courage to face each day with confidence, knowing that You are in control. Help us to let go of our fears and to cast our worries upon You, for You promise to sustain us.

We pray for Your wisdom and discernment, that we may make wise decisions and follow Your will for our lives. We also pray for Your protection, that You would keep us safe from harm and that You would guard our minds and hearts from negative thoughts and emotions.

We thank You for Your loving kindness and for the many blessings You have given us. We pray that You would continue to guide and direct us, and that You would use us to be a blessing to others.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
