6 Comforting Bible Prayers to Combat Worry and Anxiety

Many times, we think we’ll never get anything done without worrying about it first. When it came to worry and anxiety, Jesus told us to look at the “birds of the air.” They didn’t store up food—or go to the supermarket—and God fed them.

Gaining Mastery over Anxiety

Matthew 6:25, Ecclesiastes 4:7-8
Anxiety is a state of restlessness and agitation.
How to get over anxiety
1. See your problems as things that are not problems. Like David saw Goliath as an uncircumcised Philistine
2. Approach Jesus with your worries and don’t carry them alone. Many people have only come to know God because of the things they are going through.
May the Lord bring you pains that will cause you to know Him… This is a dangerous prayer. See the life of Job. He had the knowledge of God even in distress.
3. Have the Knowledge of God stored in your heart
Of what use is your worry? Desperation will give you anxiety. The will of God will not cost you your salvation. Seek the face of God. Anxiety can come as a result of disobedience, improper planning, prayerlessness, and carelessness among other causes.
Leverage the spirit of God to gain mastery over anxiety
