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

Anxious feelings that are not addressed properly can be hard. However, we should acknowledge that we are not alone in fighting these battles. That is when the prayers for anxiety give us the strength to carry on. God gave His only son to be one of us and to 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] commands us not to be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, we make our request known to Him.

When we feel anxious, depressed, or lost, there are prayers for anxiety based on Bible verses that you can meditate on. And always remind yourself that God is greater than the highs and lows.

A Prayer To Ease Anxiety

Dear Heavenly Father,

Listen to my prayer requests. When 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 worries 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 cannot be shaken.


Dear Lord,

I come humbly before your mighty presence, laying all my anxious thoughts before you. I surrender all my worries and fears to you, Heavenly Father, and you remind me to stop worrying and believe 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.


A 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 when 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 and fear 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 things in Jesus’ name.


A Prayer To Gain Strength

Dear God,

I trust in your undying love, God. I acknowledge that you are the ultimate source of my strength. When I feel stressed and afraid, I know you are my refuge, Lord. You’re the fortress of my life, the shield, and the stronghold. Thank you, dear God, for being the foundation of my life during the storms of fear and anxiety. I offer this brief prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, your son.


A Prayer To Relieve Burdened Minds

Heavenly Father,

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


A Prayer For Weary People

Father God,

Please help me, 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. Please show me the path in this life-long journey and tell me to rest, as sometimes I get distracted by things in this world. Please cast all my fears and problems away. Allow me to live my life according to Jesus, your Son, with joy and peace. For all these things, I pray for your sake.


A Prayer For A Restless Heart

Dear Jesus,

Please help my heart and grant me peace of mind and calmness in my heart. Silence my soul, which is a violent storm, and help me find the balance I desperately need amidst the fear and anxiety surrounding me. Allow my troubled heart to rest as you would any member of your flock. Lord, strengthen my faith and give me the clarity I need to have patience and self-control when facing all the hurdles in life. I ask in Jesus’ name.

I humbly ask in my prayers that these people are good at handling their problems. May they remain calm when circumstances are out of their control. I pray all this in Jesus’ name.

A Prayer For Tranquility


Please grant me the tranquility I need when I have anxiety and worry about 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 I feel. I surrender myself to your will, oh God, and I fervently hope for the best, knowing that you are with me in every step I take. Make me worry less, Lord, and prevent the anxiety that I feel from ruining my relationship with you.


A Prayer Against Any Temptation To Panic

I know that becoming discouraged is normal for people, 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 to help me realize how capable I am of facing any challenge ahead.


A 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, as I worry a lot about things that are out of my control. Replace worry with peace, and let my heart hold no fear, as I know that you are in my life in unexpected ways. Continue to guide me and never let me stray.


A Prayer For Anxiety To Overcome It

Dear Lord,

I humbly kneel before you and ask for guidance, as I acknowledge that I am nothing without you. I worry a lot, and my anxiety grows even more when 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 can conquer all things through your mighty name.

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

  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
