Prayer on Anxiety

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today with a heavy heart, burdened by the weight of my anxieties. I know that You understand my fears and worries, and I trust in Your loving care for me.

Lord, I know that You have promised to be with me always, and I ask that You would make Your presence known to me in a powerful way today. Give me the peace that surpasses all understanding, and help me to trust in Your goodness and faithfulness.

I ask that You would give me the strength to face my fears, and the courage to trust in Your plan for my life. I know that You are sovereign over all things, and that nothing can separate me from Your love.

Heavenly Father, I ask that You would give me the wisdom to know how to respond to the situations that are causing me anxiety, and the grace to follow through on Your guidance. I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and I know that You will work all things for my good.

I pray that You would give me the faith to trust in You, and the hope to look forward to the future with confidence. I ask that You would bless me and keep me, and make Your face shine upon me.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
