Prayer for Overcoming Life’s Burdens

Prayer for Overcoming Life’s Burdens

Feeling overwhelmed by life’s burdens today? We have all been at that stage where it seems impossible to carry on. You look at others, and they never seemed worried or disturbed in any way.

The Bible says: Turn your burdens over to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will never let the righteous person stumble. Psalm 55:22

Yet, we continue to carry our burdens ourselves, not trusting the Lord to keep to His word. We trust in men but not in God.

Yes, it’s difficult to release all to the Lord and to listen to His counsel. But as we release and trust, and go in faith, God’s work is manifested in our lives.  


Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a great help in times of distress..
God is our refuge, he is our strength! 

Prayer to Overcome Life’s Burdens

Yeshua, Almighty God, Everlasting Father, I am overwhelmed by life’s burdens.

My cross is heavy. Worry fills my mind and sadness consumes my heart.

Day in, and day out, I feel heavy, drowning in my past, worrying about my present and anticipating my future.


Romans 15:4 – For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. 

Psalm 55:22 – Turn your burdens over to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will never let the righteous person stumble.

I release my burdens

Be my strength, Oh great rock. When issues arise out of the depths of the sea, allow me to lean on You and not focus on them.

May I walk on the rough waters as the storm rages. I release every burden, every stronghold, every issue and every situation today, Oh Merciful Savior.


James 1:2-4 – Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a great help in times of distress.

You will never forsake me

I cling to You, Oh Heavenly Father, for I can rest assured, knowing You will never forsake me.

You hold me in the palm of Your hands and from this moment on, my heart shall not fear, it shall hold no worry or sadness.


I declare that every burden, every issue, and every situation has already been resolved by the most high God. I declare hat I have been set free.

Today, I will step out in Faith completely trusting You and let that overflowing, bubbling, abundant, joy that only You can provide, consume my mind, heart and soul. In Jesus’ precious name I pray, Amen!

Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Psalm 81:6-7 – I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket. In your distress you called and I rescued you, I answered you out of a thundercloud.
