Prayer

Anxiety

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’ s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NLT).

The churning inside me never stops; days of suffering confront me (Job 30:27; NIV).

‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ (Mark 12; 31; NLT).


Lord,
Thank you for my anxiety.

Even though it’s hard to bear,
I welcome it as a friend.

Help me to listen
To its warning voice,

And to learn
Everything it has to teach me –

About my boundaries,
My limitations,

And how I can protect myself
From further harm.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
