Dear Lord God, my heart is filled with anxious thoughts. Please assure me that You are in control. My mind is filled with fear. Please give me faith to believe that You will always be with me and will always keep your promises. I am self-absorbed and self-centered right now. Humble me and help me to focus on Jesus. Please surround me with your peace and your presence. Guard my heart and my mind - and lead me wherever you want me to go. In the strong and powerful name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24)

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:6-7)

“The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:5-7)
