1 Peter 5:6,7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." John 14:27
Breathe. Sometimes that's all we need to do in the midst of a stressful moment.
A Prayer to Heal Stress
"Heavenly Father, 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. I trust your Love God, and know that you will heal this stress. Just as the sun rises each day against the dark of night. Please bring me clarity with the light of God. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Prayer for strength in the midst of stress
"Lord, I surrender all my worries to You. Please fill my heart instead with the desire to do good things. Please bless the work of my hands. And let all that I do be pleasing to you. Let me not stress myself out thinking about what will happen tomorrow. Let my worried mind understand that the same God whose helpful hand took care of me yesterday, is taking care of me today And will take care of me no matter what happens in the days to come. I should put aside anxious thoughts and be at peace for I believe He will either shield me from harm or He will give me strength to carry the weight." In the Name of Jesus. Amen.
