15 Prayers For Anxiety When You’re Feeling Stress And Depress

Having anxious feelings can be very hard, especially when they are not addressed properly. However, we need to acknowledge the fact that we are not alone when fighting these kinds of battles. That is when the prayers for anxiety give us the strength to carry on. God gave his only begotten son to mankind to be one of us and save us. Indeed, anxiety is a spiritual battle that requires you to believe in God’s word, and praying is one effective way to build your relationship with Him.

Philippians 4:6[1] is commanding us to not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, we tell our request to be made known to him.

The following are prayers for anxiety that are based on Bible verses that you can meditate on:

A Prayer To Ease Anxiety

Dear Heavenly Father,

Listen to my prayer requests. Whenever my panic attacks visit me, please remind me that my peace, Lord, comes from you and is not based on circumstances or feelings. I lay my problems and worry at your feet. I would choose to focus on the love and care that you have given me. I know that I can’t win this on my own. I need you, Jesus Christ, and I thank you for carrying my burdens. With that, I know I can not be shaken. Amen.

Dear Lord,

I humbly come before your mighty presence and lay to you all my anxious thoughts. I surrender to you all my worries and fears, Heavenly Father, and you remind me to stop worrying and start believing in your mighty grace and power. I believe in you, God, and you alone. Fill my anxious heart, dear Lord, with your Holy Spirit, and I trust you, Lord, that you will lift away all my burdens. I know that you will always be by my side and I thank you for it. Amen.

Prayer To Confront Fear

Dear God,

During stressful times, when I feel devoured by my fear, worries, and anxiety, help me to recognize your truth despite my crowded and anxious heart. Hoist my mind to remove all inhibitions and let your love surround me whenever I can’t move because of the fear that encloses my head and heart. Help me to confront fear during anxious times and help me remember to take single steps and find rest in your open arms, Lord Jesus. When anxiety begins to linger and fear starts to take over, make me calm with your words and remind my soul to seek refuge in you.

I believe in You, God, and I pray all of these in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer To Gain Strength

Dear God,

I trust in your undying love, God. I acknowledge that you are the ultimate source of my strength. Whenever I am feeling stressed and afraid, I know that I have refuge in you, Lord. You’re the fortress of my life, my shield as well as my stronghold. Thank you, dear God, for being the foundation of my life during the hardest storms of fear and anxiety. This short prayer I pray in the name of Christ Jesus, Your Son, Amen.

A Prayer To Relieve Burdened Minds

Be with me today, Lord God, as I feel stressed and worried. Oh God, be my refuge; let me not worry about the things that are out of my hands. Give me peace, joy, and hope, and let your will be done for my life here in this world. Strengthen me with your word and can do all things through you. Amen.

Prayer For Weary People

Help me, Father God, for my heart feels heavy. Give me peace and joy and make me humble enough to know that I do not have to carry all the burdens in this world alone. Show me the right path in this life-long journey and tell me to rest, as sometimes I get distracted by things in this world. Cast aside all my fears and problems and allow me to live my life according to Jesus, your Son, with joy and peace. For all these things, I pray for your name’s sake. Amen.

A Prayer For A Restless Heart

Help my heart, dear Jesus, and grant me peace of mind and calmness of heart. Silence my soul, which is likened to a violent storm, and help me find the balance that I desperately need amidst the fear and anxiety surrounding me. Let my troubled heart rest as you would for anyone who is a part of your flock. Lord, strengthen my faith and give me the needed clarity so that I may have patience and self-control when facing all my hurdles every day. This I ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

I am praying for those people having anxiety, that as they take a deep breath, may they be filled with your mighty spirit and come to know more about your Son, Jesus Christ. I humbly ask in my prayers that these people have a good job of handling their problems, and may they remain calm at times when the circumstances are out of their control. I pray all this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer For Hope During Hard Times

Shower upon me Your divine wisdom and make me capable of handling hard situations that slow me down. Reassure me that at the end of the day, I will return to your eternal kingdom and these hard times will serve to prepare me for everlasting life. Amen.

Prayer For Trusting God

God, forgive me as I am not sure of my trust in you as I have a hard time trusting others.

I pray for forgiveness, oh God, as well as guidance as I live my earthly life until my time has come. Amen.

A Prayer To Find Inner Peace

In this earthly life that we live, help us seek your name, especially when anxiety devours our peace. Keep us on track so that we may do as your word tells us. Help us to live in the ways that Christ Jesus, your Son, has taught us. Urge us to have faith in you and surrender ourselves to you. These things we are praying for in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer For Tranquility

Grant me, Lord, the tranquility I need whenever I have anxiety and worry over things that are out of my control. Accept my humble prayers and give me the wisdom to understand that you are bigger than the anxiety that I feel every day. I surrender myself to your will, oh God, and I fervently hope for the best, knowing that you are with me in every step that I take. Make me worry less, Lord, and prevent the anxiety that I feel from ruining my relationship with you. Amen.

Prayer Against Any Temptation To Panic

Heavenly God,

I know that becoming discouraged is normal for people like me, but in times like this, please help me to become more resistant to temptation and fix my eyes on you. Do continue to show me the truth, for me to realize how truly capable I am of facing any challenge that lies ahead. Amen.

Prayer For The Worrisome

Father in heaven,

Let me draw closer to you and be the calm I need during the times when anxiety takes over and I worry a lot over things that are out of my control. Replace worry with peace and let my heart hold no fear, as I know that you are working in my life in the most unexpected ways. Continue to guide me and never let me stray. Amen.

Prayers For Anxiety And Overcoming It

Dear Lord,

I humbly kneel before you and ask for guidance as I acknowledge that I am nothing without you. I worry too much, and my anxiety grows even more whenever I go off track. Hence, I ask for your provisions as you are the only one that can see through everyone’s hearts. I offer you all my problems and anxiety and take it as your way of telling me that I am one of your children and I can conquer all things through your mighty name.

I receive you as my Saviour. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

  1. These prayers came to me when I needed them the most. No therapist, no headshrinker, and no death medications can do more than a quiet walk with God. Standing tall in the warmth and light of the Sun, what troubles I have are breathed in and then burned away as I breathe out.

    This is a wonderful and peace bringing article. I had worried myself on being lonely but now I do sit still alone, but I am in solitude with the light. Thank you

  2. Good day to u
