Prayer for Fear and Anxiety
Dear God, I come to you today in my time of need. I am overwhelmed by the stress and difficulties of life, worried about my health, family and finances. I need your help today to walk through these trials with faith. Give me peace of mind to rest in your care. Help me not be afraid when I’m surrounded by uncertainty because you alone are greater than any problem I face today. Amen
I am thankful for the gift you have given me of life. I acknowledge that you are present in all that exists and that your presence is tangible; I feel it within me at this very moment. As I pray to you, please help me overcome my fear and anxiety by giving me strength and courage.
I give you all my worries and anxieties.
I know you’re afraid. I’m afraid, too. But I don’t want to spend the rest of my life worrying about what could happen—or even what has happened. Instead, I give you all my worries and anxieties.
I have learned that worry is not helpful; it doesn’t make things better and only adds to our stress levels. Worrying is also a form of fear and anxiety—and we know those are bad for us! So please take every worry off my shoulders right now so that I can walk through this world with confidence in Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:13).
I feel overwhelmed by the stress and difficulties of life.
When you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, it can be hard to remember that God is with you.
It is important to take time to pray, even if it feels like there is nothing left in your tank. God knows what you are going through and He will help you through it.
Worried about my health, family and finances.
I am worried about my health, family and finances. I feel overwhelmed by the stress and difficulties of life. I need your help today to walk through these trials with faith. Give me peace of mind to rest in your care.
In the name of Jesus Christ I pray that you will comfort me during this difficult time. My faith is weak in times like these but I know you are here with me every step of the way!
I need your help today to walk through these trials with faith.
Faith is a gift from God and it is the foundation of our relationship with Him. Without faith, it is impossible to please God or receive His promises. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).
Faith enables you to move forward in your life daily knowing that God will be there all along the way. Your faith doesn’t have to be limited by your circumstances because God has promised that He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
When you call on me through prayer, I am always faithful to answer because I love you so much! Believe this truth today and walk into a new level of peace as you trust me even more than before!
Give me peace of mind to rest in your care.

Help me to not be afraid when I’m surrounded by uncertainty. Remind me that you will never abandon me.
You are not alone, and God is always with you. You may feel that there is no one else in this world who cares about you or understands your struggles, but I can assure you that God is always waiting to be heard. He knows how it feels to be afraid and anxious, and he wants nothing more than for us to put our trust in him so that his peace can fill our hearts.
Let me encourage you today: don’t give up on your faith! Don’t allow fear or uncertainty to keep you from coming closer to God! Instead of running away when things get tough, choose instead to turn toward him with all of your heart and let him lead the way through whatever storm may be raging around you right now.
These troubles will not last forever.
As you struggle with anxiety and fear, remember that these are not permanent conditions. God is faithful and good, and He will help you through your troubles. The Bible says:
- “Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever” (Psalm 125:1).
- “I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread” (Psalm 37:25).
- “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you” (Isaiah 43:2).
You are greater than any problem I face so help me put my hope in you alone.
When you are experiencing fear or anxiety, it is important to remember that God is bigger than any problem you face. Your problems are not greater than God’s power. In fact, they are so small compared to the sovereignty of God that they cannot even come close to comparing. Therefore, no matter what happens in your life, no matter what difficulty comes along or how hard things get for you—you can rest assured knowing that God will help you overcome them because he is greater than any problem that comes before him.
God has given us the solution to our anxiety and fear. He is the only one who can truly remove these emotions from our lives, but we have to ask for His help every day. The bible tells us that God is a very faithful God and will do whatever it takes to give us peace in our hearts. We just need to trust Him with all of our problems so they won’t cause stress or worry anymore!
