  1. I ask you to pray for me and my family. It seems that many of God’s people are going through the same thing. My husband and I are lucky to finally have jobs that are barely adequate to pay our bills, but I am working 13 to 14 hour days and under so much stress. I am so tired all of the time and have no time for my family or the things of the Lord. I haven’t read the Bible in months. Please especially pray for my daughters S and K and J. S keeps making such self destructive choices , she is in her mid 20s and blames me for all that is wrong in her life. K is working hard going to college in Denver, please protect her. J is still with me , pray that we can provide for her. I am just so very tired, I feel guilty asking for prayer when there are people with serious illnesses and no jobs, but I have been counting pennies and working 60+ hour work weeks for 27 years and I need for God to bless us. I ask that God restores to us the years the locusts have eaten and opens up the gates of heaven and spills out a blessing too great to receive it. Thank you for praying for others

    • Blessed C, I am in prayer for you and you family. Never feel guilty asking for prayer. We all need God’s help, and his mercy is infinite. You are tired and working hard – God sees this. Cry out to him. Let him hear your cry. Do not be ashamed. The Father will receive you with loving, open arms every time.
      Don’t stop praying, don’t give up hope. Jesus sees your struggle and suffers with you. Remember how he suffered – think of this when you are returning from a long day at work, or when you arise still tired from the previous day. Remember Jesus on the cross. Then look upon his glorious resurrection. Find peace and strength in this. I will keep praying for you and your family. May God bless you, protect you, and pour his mercy out upon you. Amen.

  2. Please pray that God will open a door and show me that door to a job that will provide for the needs of my family. I am currently working only part time and cannot find a job that will pay enough without having to be away from home the majority of the time. I was laid off from a good job in July. Thank you.

  3. Please pray for the anxiety I face everyday and the fear that comes with it. Pray that both myself and my husband make it through this difficult time of year. Any prayers are appreciated thank you

  4. Please pray for my husband and me. We are going through a lot of trials as of late. No matter how hard we try, we cannot get ahead in our lives. We have overcome many obstacles and it seems like once we get through those there is 100 more. We need strength, to be freed from worry and anxiety.
    That kind you.

    • Praying for you Dorinna. Our confidence in the Lord is born of our trials. He will see you through this all. Don’t let the lies of the enemy get you down. Focus on the truth of Christ resurrected. Never, ever give up hope.

    • Yes, we will pray for you. May the Lord bring you order, strength and clarity. May he pour out his Spirit out on you in great abundance. In Jesus name, Amen.

      Seek him in prayer and in the Word. He will deliver you.

    • We are praying for this town. May the Lord pour out his mercy, Spirit, and grace upon the hearts of all. May the Holy Spirit take control, all for the glory of Christ by his will and his way. In Jesus name, Amen.

  5. I would like to ask for prayers on my emotional health living stituation just dont feel loved anymore , I have been depressed for as long a i remember not happy at all but i know God loves me and forgives me of my sins , Im just weak and scared of change thank you for your time

    • Pam – It’s ok to be weak and scared. It’s especially ok that you can admit your struggle. Find courage in God’s love. You are his daughter – this is an eternal and indestructible truth. Nothing and nobody can take you from his hand. Let your faith in Him be your shield. We bless you and pray for you.

  6. Good morning, please pray for our 16yo daughter, Maddison. She had to leave public school last September,unable to attend due to horrible anxiety. She was depressed as well, and we got a Pediatric Psychiatrist to help and she has seen a wonderful counselor since last fall.
    Now back in high school 2 days, not able to attend classes at all, the Special Ed Dir., and another Administrator have helped her…having a meeting today at 2:45 to discuss how we best assist Maddison getting to class etc.
    The Admin/Coach said he would sit with her in classes (at back of room) 5 min, 10 minutes and so on until she feels like she can go without him.
    I’m thinking they will push her too fast and she won’t be ready fast enough for them.
    Mostly, she needs the Lord and a relationship with Him. She doesn’t have faith right now, or belief.
    Thanks for prayers! Pray I find a support group, I found Grace Mental Health Alliance online yesterday & hope to connect somehow through their ministry/organization.

    • Praying for Maddison. May the Lord pour out his mercy, love, and protection over her. May his grace free her from her anxiety and heal her wounds. May our heavenly Father look over the entire family and guide you all along this journey. As Christ carried his cross, so you shall carry yours towards resurrection and victory. In his beloved name, Amen.

      Never give up hope. Love fears nothing. Bless you!

  7. Please pray for me and for those with LES (lupus)… it a very unknown decease but it makes those like me who suffer it to be very anxious and depress. God bless you

  8. Thank you, Vincent, for your holy work here in this space. I have two daughters (one blood, one step) both of whom suffer periodically from terrible bouts of anxiety and depression. Both love the Lord, but neither as far as I can tell, exercises her faith very actively. Please pray with me for both of them that their faith might be strengthened and that God’s loving embrace of them be made so real and so clear them that they would turn more and more to Him to learn His way and to seek His plan for their lives. Pray for me, too, Vincent, that I might be a help for each of them in the way each needs me to be. I fear that my words and my actions often exacerbate their anxieties, so I need God’s holy vision for how to be the person they need me to be. Thank you, Vincent. You’re in my prayers, too, for success in all you do. Blessings, Mary Adrienne

    • Thank you Mary Adrienne for you kind words and blessings. We will certainly pray for you and your family. Sometimes we have to just love them and pray for them. Be ready when needed. God is not done with them yet. Jesus never forced himself on anyone. He worked with what they gave him. A wise person once told me, “I’m not interested in changing anyone anymore. I try to accept them – and hope that Jesus changes me.” God bless you!

  9. My name is Gregory and I am really struggling with addictions,fear, depression, and anxiety. I have really been struggling with my faith and doubt as I have been have not witnessed breakthrough despite seeking out the LORD.

    Thank You and God Bless

  10. I pray for my friend whos in a toxic relationship shes lost her way and sees no future ahead.
    she is being crippled with anxiety and confusion
    she wants to be done
    but she fears for herself
    i pray she can feel gods comfort and that he gives her strength to let go of those who
    hold her hostage in sin

  11. Vince: me gusto mucho tu blog! te felicito! ademas me siento identificada con todo lo que hablas acerca de ansiedad. Uno trata de controlar algo que se hace tan poderoso e invisible a la vez… muchas veces es muy difícil lograr calmar la ansiedad. La oración es la mejor opción. Te pido que reces por mi ansiedad. Para que no sea tan dura y exigente con los que mas amo, creando un daño emocional en ellos.
    Para que la ansiedad no se apodere de nosotros como pueblo, por que nos llevaría por muy mal camino. Recemos por la PAZ. AMEN
    Gracias. Malu

    • Querida Malu – Vamos a orar por vos y toda tu familia. Agradezco a Dios que mis palabras te ayuden. Te quiero mucho cuñada y que Dios te bendiga con todo su amor y misericordia. Vince

  12. I am asking for prayer for my sister. Jesus showed up for her and now she has run the other way. Ever since then, the enemy has sought to take her from me, and she has decided to pick up and move her whole family across the country. Please pray for us and her salvation. Thank you so much.

  13. Please keep me in your prayers I have recently been going through horrible anxiety and panic attacks. My mind is a mess. I know GOD is with me and he will heal me.

    • Hi Melissa – First of all, don’t be afraid to seek help from a doctor or psychologist. And keep praying. You can try reading the Psalms as they are a great help in times of distress.
      You are a child of God. Nothing can take you out of his hand. Remember – you are blessed, and you are loved. I send you a blessing and a prayer.
      Did you see our latest post? It may help you.

  14. I pray that I stop worrying about my children. I pray that they stay happy and healthy and live long, happy, healthy lives in Jesus’ name. Please, Lord, keep your hand over them.

    • Dear Rose – Praying for you and your children. Concern for your children is normal – but over-worry hurts the family. This is a very common issue parents face.
      Focus on building trust in Jesus.
      Your kids are God’s children. Your worry cannot change anything – let go and set your children free. Let the Spirit set you free. Remember, love fears nothing.
      Thank you for posting, and I will keep praying for you.

  15. I just want to thank you for this post on anxiety, and how you related it to the expectations we set for ourselves and others. I have heard it said also that “Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation — some fact of my life — unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.” (anonymous author) This quote comes from a book I started reading about 4 years ago when I entered into the process of recovery for the disease of alcoholism. There is power in being able to accept life as it unfolds, being able to accept people as they are, and being able to accept myself exactly where I am right now. The amazing beauty and TRUTH is that NONE of this is possible without the Lord in my life. So, yes, with MAN this may be impossible, but with God ALL things are possible! (Matthew 19:26)
