A prayer for those who are battling anxious thoughts. “Cast your cares on Him, for He cares for you.”

Sometimes, the worst place to be, is in your head. The uneasiness that comes with the uncertainties of life can sometimes be both daunting and depressing, but there is hope.

Psalm 94:19 (NASB) “When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your comfort delights my soul.”

Let us pray…

Father God, sometimes my thoughts are running what feels like one hundred miles an hour. All too often, I’m in my head, and my thoughts are the result of triggers that reminds me of past traumas, an insecurity, or I may think about the worst case scenarios. 

Give me peace in the midst of the raging storm in my mind. I know that I’m not alone, and whatever comes my way, you’ve given me the grace to overcome. 

Father keep me from making unwise decisions, when I’m battling the thoughts in my head. Remind me that it’s okay that I don’t have all the answers, and it’s okay if things don’t go the way I’ve planned, because with you Lord, everything will work for my good- despite what I go through or how I feel about it.

Give me the power to let go of the things I cannot control, and peace with situations that don’t work out how I want them to. My life isn’t over, just because things aren’t going my way. Help me to remember that when I feel like I’m drowning in thoughts of despair. 

You are my Savior and I trust you with my life. In Jesus name. Amen. 

2 Corinthians 10:5

“Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”

If you’re wondering just how to let go and let God, 1 Peter 5:7 tells us to cast our cares on Him, because He cares for us. Jesus is a friend who doesn’t mind carrying your burdens. Through Christ, God is the only one who can turn a problem into purpose.
