Dear God, I come before you . I am laying my fear and anxiety at your feet. I ask that you help me get through all of the doubts and fears when I feel as if I am being crushed. Remind me that you are a powerful God.
Fear, Anxiety and Worry … “ Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God . And the peace of God , which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
Yes, in the sense that God is equally well able to hear your silent prayer than a prayer out loud. He knows what you need even before you ask!
O Lord, my God you are my refuge and my strength. You are my ever-present help in times of trouble . When it seems like my world is crumbling around me and I am thrown around by the storms of my life, take away my fear. When I am weak, you are my strength.
A new study published in Sociology of Religion suggests that prayer can help ease people’s anxiety , but whether it does so depends on the personality of the God they believe in.
” Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” ” Do not fear the king of Babylon, of whom you are afraid. Do not fear him, declares the LORD, for I am with you, to save you and to deliver you from his hand.”
Leviticus 19:28 reads, ” You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord”. Even devout Christian Mr Folau has a couple of tattoos of his own – so there are a lot of sinners going straight to Hell for this one .
Trusting God is the antidote to fear and worry . In Matthew 6:25-30 Jesus commanded us not to worry . When a person repents of their sin and puts their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus, God becomes their Father. A father takes care of his children.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God .
But if you can stand, the prayer protocol is that one must stand to offer the prayer and if you can sit but can’t stand, then sitting is acceptable etc. However, if you want to offer the prayer lying in bed even if you can stand or sit, it’s between you and God. You can pray anywhere.
Of course you can, If God is omni present, He is present in the toilet too. Its man-made rule that we shouldn’t pray in toilet . We can and we shall pray to him whenever we feel like. When we pray with our whole heart, even if we are in Toilet , he will respond there too.
God speaks through thoughts and feelings No, but he will help you “ hear ” him through thoughts and feelings.
Be My Guide Prayer Heavenly Father, I humble myself before you asking for your hand of support during these difficult situations . You are my refuge and my strength; my present help in trouble. Hold my hand and do not let me fall. Let your grace be upon me during these times of anguish.
Ask Him for comfort and compassion for and from your family. Ask Him to help you talk with them and tell them that you love them, even as they struggle to understand you. Ask Him to take your problems and turn them into solutions. Ask Him to show you how to understand and love yourself as He does.
