A Prayer for When I Am Stressed

Stress is weighing me down

As the tears of my burdens trickle down my cheek and impact the floor, Father please draw near. I am crying out in desperation. I need You right here, right now! Oh Lord, I am constantly on edge and I cannot think clearly.

The stress that weighs on my shoulders keeps me up at night. I toss and turn at the thought of the pressures of life.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

This pain I feel, I cannot bear. It heavies my heart, it saddens my soul and it takes away all the joy I have left. I am physically, mentally and emotionally drained to the point where I feel as though I cannot go on.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

I need peace

Oh Lord, my God, grant me peace in my heart, eliminate the pain and relieve me of the stress I feel. Allow Your serenity and love to consume me.

Relax my mind, my body and my soul as I surrender myself to You. Revive the joy and energy I once had. Allow Your light to infiltrate through the darkness and grace me so I can smile again.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

John 14:1 Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.

 

 

Give me strength

Father, equip me with the strength and courage I need to overcome these stressful situations in my life.

Thrust me forward into triumphant victory as the stresses of this world just swiftly fall away at the sound of Your great name! In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen!

2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way.
