Anxiety and stress can really get the best of us sometimes.  The more we dwell on the bad things, the worse we feel energy wise and health wise. Here are 8 prayers that you can pray in different situations of life’s troubles and problems.

Strength

Dear Omnipotent Father, the Almighty, all powerful God, give me strength today through all of my health issues.  I pray that You will eradicate the diseases plaguing me this day.  I feel weak and useless.  You have the power to do as You please gracious Father, and I pray that Your will be done.  If You will that my back pain goes away or stays, I will obey You, Lord.  If You will that my migraines get stronger or go away, I will love and honor You this day.  Amen.

Test Results

Holy God in heaven, I come to you now with a heavy heart.

I will obey You Father no matter what. You are omniscient and know what is best for me; that is why I love You so much.  I praise Your Name, O Holy God!  Amen.

Future Spouse

Lord, you know my situation.  I want so badly for You to bring a suitable mate into my life.  Lord, I love You with all of my heart and I want a partner that feels the same way.  I do not want to be unequally yoked and I pray that You will give me discernment to know when to run away and when to stay.  I will continue faithfully in obeying You, Father, no matter the outcome.  You know what is best for me and I will gladly follow where You lead me with my anxiety over this issue.  I love You, Father!  Amen.

Conclusion

One fact of life for God’s children is that we all face trials, troubles and tragedies at some point.

Prayer stress relief is probably something you’ve never considered. Life’s stress can sometimes be overwhelming. This is because we try to take on stress by our own strength. We handle stress the way we think is best. If you’re like me, you’ve found this way does not always work. Prayer stress relief allows you another option……

 
So what is prayer exactly?….It’s a tool you use to communicate with God. It’s a pouring out of your heart to God. Prayer is used to cry out to God in times when guidance or strength are needed.  It is also used to praise and thank God for what you’ve been blessed with in your life.

Communication is two-sided, so hearing from God after you pray is also important. This requires a relationship with him. You can develop this through studying the bible…….also called his word.

Keep in mind this is not like the “genie in a bottle”. Not everything we want is good for us. We have to trust that he will only allow what’s best for us. 

God’s love is there for anyone who will ask him into their heart. 

There are different ways to pray.   o Some people pray out loud, expressing a lot of emotion.  

o Others choose to pray quietly to themselves.  o You can even come together with others and pray.

You can pray while on your knees, or be up moving around. I like to find a quiet place with no distractions and sit quietly when I pray. There’s no requirement for how long your prayer must be, but your heart must be sincere.  
There are two major benefits of prayer stress relief…. o  The weight of your stress is lifted from your shoulders because you’ve allowed God to take on your cares or worries.

o  The time you spend in quiet prayer also gives your body a chance to come down from a stressful day.

Because it has no health or physical limitations, anyone who chooses to believe in God can pray . Do you want to learn more about God and prayer?…..well here is a good place to start. 

The book “Peace Be Still” is a great daily journal resource. It provides great motivational thoughts, and a place for writing down your own reflections.

QUESTION: Prayer for stress relief – Does prayer work to reduce stress?

ANSWER:

Let us face the facts: we all have stress. It is the way we deal with stress that differs. The good news is that prayer for stress relief works! Prayer is that unique form of communication with God available to the believer that, when used often and in accordance with God’s will, brings us into alignment with God’s viewpoint. Being in good alignment means that our whole being is put into its proper perspective and that means life is less stressful and we are better able to deal with the stress we do have.

A proper perspective of our reality is often the biggest stress reliever there is. There is a saying, “Don’t sweat the small stuff, it is all small stuff.” The proper perspective helps us to understand that our stress is not unique or strange and it cannot defeat us without our help. In other words, when it comes to stress, we give it the power that it has over us. Living a prayer-centered life changes that equation. It is also an amazing thing of irony, but praying for others or intermediary prayer helps to put our own needs into perspective. Because when we focus upon the needs of others, our own needs become less of a focus. “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4).

The adage that “Prayer changes things,” is only partly right, especially in stress relief. Prayer changes the one doing the praying. God is sovereign and when we pray, we are told to pray with in the will of God as Jesus taught His disciples in Matthew 6:9-13. This model of prayer is a good basis to start from and it can lead us into a deeper life of prayer. This deeper communion with Christ has a result of bringing a clearer understanding of our dependence upon God and His grace, which changes us and can consequently result in changing “things.”

James makes this statement: “You ought to say, ‘If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.'” (James 4:15). Therefore, when we are praying, we need to do so not with a personal laundry list but with the attitude of submission to God and His will. That is not to say that we should not use prayer for stress relief. “You do not have, because you do not ask God” (James 4:2). There is nothing in our lives that God does not know about so when we pray we are not informing Him. Rather, we are bringing our will into alignment with His Will.

But how does prayer relieve stress? When we communicate with God, we do so on a one-to-one basis with no intermediary. This is the only time when we can be honest with ourselves and with God. You’ll find no artifice in the prayer closet. One can’t simply mumble “I’m fine” when one is alone with God. The realizations that God knows our frame, has a clear understanding of who and what we are, and that He loves us anyway gives us a humility that strips us of false pride and opens our heart to allow the LORD to change us. Situations that cause stress in our life may not change instantly, but our attitude of peace in the face of the stress will make our life seem different. The result of prayer as a stress relief is the recognition of our dependence upon the “Prince of Peace” to bring us through anything!

A prayer for stress relief might include some of the following statements to God: “Father, I know that You know my life and You know the problems and stress that I face. Help me to keep my eyes not on the problems or the stressful situations, but upon You and Your mercy and grace. Father, I cannot change the situations that cause stress in my life but I know that You can. LORD, keep my heart humble and willing to submit to the ‘all things’ that you have allowed into my life. Father, give me Your strength to stand because although I do not understand how this will change me, I know that You are working in and through me to conform my life to glorify You. Lead me into Your truth by helping me to surrender to Your Word. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”

Jesus

, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He

died

for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was

buried

, and

rose from the dead

according to the

Bible

. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your

Savior

, declaring, “

Jesus is Lord

,” you will be saved from

judgment

and spend eternity with God in heaven.
