Easing Your Anxiety Through Prayer

Prayer for anxiety may help some with dealing with the disorder. Listed below are the anxiety prayers that personally help me. Whatever your faith, I hope you will find comfort in them.

Prayer for Anxiety: "Prayer for Peace of Mind"
O Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You, hoping for all things from Your goodness. You make a root flourish beneath the soil; You can make fruitful the darkness in which I find myself today. I adore You in all Your purposes even without knowing them; Your will be done, not mine. May I be patient! It is so difficult to realize these trials, heartbreaking as they are, can be turned into blessings. Lord, give me peace of mind, peace of heart, and peace of soul, as I offer You my thoughts, my words, and my action, and yes, Lord my sufferings. May they all be for Your greater glory, Amen.

Prayer for Anxiety: "Morning Prayer"
O God. You are my creator and protector, and the ultimate end of my existence. I believe in You - strengthen my faith. My hopes are in You - may they live and grow. I love You - teach me to love You even more. Fill my heart with thanks for Your goodness, love of my neighbor, charity towards my enemies, and distrust of worldly wisdom. Make me prudent in my undertakings today, patient in affliction, and humble in good fortune. Grant that I may be attentive to my prayers, and ever mindful of Your presence, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Prayer for Anxiety: "Prayer for Life"
Loving God, in Your goodness You have given us the gift of life. I ask Your pardon and forgiveness for my own failure and the failure of all people in this world to protect and respect this gift You have given us. I pray that with Your grace I and all the people will respect, reverence, and protect all life of the unborn, the abused, neglected, disabled, and the elderly. Guide all who make decisions about life, that they will do so with wisdom, love, and courage. In Your name Father, Source of all life, Son, Savior of our lives, and Spirit, Sanctifier of our lives - I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Anxiety: "Prayer for a Special Need"
Lord Jesus, You have said, "Learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart." With confidence in Your loving heart which offers rest to weary souls, I come to You in this my time of special need. In Your unfailing love, read the prayer that is written on my heart, and grant the grace that I ask of You, in accordance with Your holy will. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
