If you are feeling fearful and worried constantly, you may find prayers for stress and worry helpful to get relief.
Millions of women, especially working moms trying to balance family and job are going through anxiety and depression. You can find comfort and relief by offering prayers for stress and worry.
Praying is a powerful way to bring focus to your thoughts by seeking help from God who is in control of each and every situation.
When we feel scared and anxious, we can find peace knowing that God is ready to stretch out His mighty hand towards us to support us and lead us with His wisdom.
Encouraging Prayer to Relieve Stress and Worry
For many people, asking God’s support especially when things get out of control seems to lift the feeling of carrying the burden alone.
Before summarizing prayer examples, I do want to clarify that it is best to pray to God in your own words. Prayer should be as simple as talking to a close friend openly and honestly about your feelings, fears and hopes. If you are not already praying in that way, it would be a wonderful treat to make that a habit.
It is a great practice to spend some time in prayer each morning right when you wake up using your own words. You can start by addressing God by saying his name and then begin to express yourself. If you are in a place where you can speak out loud, you should feel free to do so. If not, then merely think the words. After a few minutes, simply end by saying “In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.” This is powerful because in the Bible Jesus asked us to “pray to the Father in my name.”
Here are 5 prayers for stress and worry relief you can adapt to your own situation and in your own words. In this post, we focused on prayers for workplace and job related stressful circumstances we all face.
