Prayer for Calm

(a prayer to say to calm down anxiety and stress)

Dear Father,

I still my heart, my mind and my body before you. As I focus on you, on your love, on your truth, and on your promises I turn from the things that trouble me. I take each trigger for anxiety and lay it at your feet. I choose to hear songs of praise and allow my heart to breathe. I choose to wait for your Holy Spirit to stir my soul. I rest here knowing that whatever I face, you can hold me safe.

Prayer for Anxiety

Heavenly Father,

When I feel crushed by my own worries,
Lift my mind and help me to see the truth.

When fear grips me tight and I feel I cannot move,
Free my heart and help me to take things one step at a time.

When I can't express the turmoil inside,
Calm me with Your quiet words of love.

I choose to trust in You, each day, each hour, each moment of my life.
I know deep down that I can cast these cares on You, that you have taken these anxious thoughts and by dying on the cross, You have set me free.

I choose to trust in You, each day, each hour, each moment of my life.
I know deep down that I live in Your grace, forgiven, restored by Your sacrifice, You have set me free.
