Most adults have experienced anxiety at some point in their lives. In fact, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern in the United States and in Canada, with about 19 percent of adults and 7 percent of children experiencing symptoms.
In other words, anxiety is nothing to be ashamed of, and it's something that can be treated through a variety of methods (therapy, medication, etc.). Sometimes anxiety can feel so normal that people accept the symptoms as part of their everyday experience, but life doesn't have to be that way. Seeking relief from anxiety is something that should be not only encouraged, but celebrated as prioritizing one's holistic health not just physical, but mental, too.
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, finding solace in daily prayer will help ease your anxiety. Finding prayers for peace can be a great way to calm an anxious mind or take a moment to be still after experiencing a hectic day or racing mind. When it comes to anxiety, in particular, lifting up your worries to God instead of carrying them on your own is exactly what you need to finally take a deep breath and feel safe.
Are you feeling anxious right now ? Let us pray....
Please grant me peace of mind and calm my troubled heart. My soul is like a turbulent sea. I can't seem to find my balance so I stumble and worry constantly.
Give me the strength and clarity of mind to find my purpose and walk the path you've laid out for me. Bathe me in Your glory, Lord and show me that everything is according to Your plan.
I trust in you God, and know that you will heal this stress.
Calm me, Lord, as you calmed the storm; still me, Lord, keep me from harm.
Let all the tumult within me cease, Lord, enfold me in your peace.
