Prayer When You Can’t Relax

Prayer When You Can’t Relax

Are you stressed, worried, anxious about things in your life? Are you struggling to find solutions? The more you struggle, the worse it seems to get. But the Bible reminds us:

“In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Now, it’s not easy to release everything unto the Lord. This is an act of faith. But, as your faith grows, and you see the manifestations of the Lord’s work in your life, it becomes easier.

And take a few minutes to listen to the song at the end. It’s time to believe all the great things the Lord thinks of you and has in store for you.


Prayer When You Can’t Relax

Oh Lord, my God, You alone know what I am going through. Lord, I am so anxious that I cannot seem to relax. At this point I feel awfully restless, agitated and weak, burdened by the troubles that stir in my mind.

I cannot sleep. I hardly eat and I am constantly on edge. My heart is extremely heavy. My body is totally exhausted. And I feel as though I cannot go on.

Psalm 127: 2 It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep. 

Abba Father, I need Peace

Father, I need You, right here, right now! Work within me so that I may find the peace that I once knew. Silence the noise that surrounds me, as I pray that the peace of the Lord be upon my life wherever I go.


Psalm 4:8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 37:7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! 

Ease my Worrying Mind

Lord, guide me as I submit this humble prayer to You. I request peace in my heart, the peace that surpasses all understanding. Ease my worrying mind, as I lay down my burdens at the foot of the cross.

Allow me to relax today and rest peacefully tonight, as joy rises with You in the morning. Embrace me in Your comforting arms, as I am healed and touched by the power of Your warm love.


Father, bring me through these testing times.

I declare and decree that every stronghold in my life is demolished, every sin is washed away and every chain of anxiety, doubt, fear and dismay is broken, in Jesus’ name! Amen!

Matthew 11: 28-30 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Philippians 4:6-7 In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

“You Say” resonates with many people on many levels. Know that you are loved. You are not alone. If you are struggling with thoughts of suicide there is hope and there is help.

“Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at Your feet You have every failure, God, and You’ll have every victory.” – from Lauren Daigle – You Say

    1. Heavenly Father, I thank you for constantly reminding us not fear, for fear is the root cause of sin. We fear community & what people are going to say especially when we’re going through divorce, financial problems, give us strength, wisdom, knowledge & understanding Lord so that we overcome fear in our daily lives. Teach us Lord to patient & to be humble. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ 🙏

  2. I have been asking for one thing to change in my family so THY GLORY will be known in my family……………………….beloved brethren help me ask GOD to meet me at pressing needs because i abandon myself in HIM

  3. Thankful for this prayer … and more so for the scriptural reminders of what God says about anxiety, worry, and fear. Daily, I am reminded to lean not on my own understanding, but in prayer and supplication, to make my requests made known to God … and in doing so, His peace that surpasses ALL understanding will guard my heart and mind. If my heart and mind are guarded, the thoughts that the enemy tries to make me believe about myself will be powerless!! To God be the glory!!!
