Feeling stressed out? You probably need a break from your hectic life or maybe you are facing a big challenge or crisis.
There are two ways in which stress and worry go away: when circumstances change or when you change.
Even if it’s hard, even if you feel like you don’t have the time or energy, seek God. Put him at the top of your priorities. Don’t wait anymore. The Lord is waiting to help and heal you, but it won’t happen unless you open your heart to him.
So place all your worries and your fear at the feet of Christ. Be real about it. Sincere. Let it go and give it up to him. Then let his Spirit rush in to transform you and bring you true peace.
Audio message and prayer from Vincent:
Has this site blessed you? Learn about our patron program.
O God, thou art my God, I seek thee,
my soul thirsts for thee;
my flesh faints for thee,
as in a dry and weary land where no water is.
So I have looked upon thee in the sanctuary,
beholding thy power and glory.
Because thy steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise thee.
So I will bless thee as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on thy name.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
PRAYER FOR WORRY AND STRESS
O heavenly Lord,
I can’t deny it, worry consumes me and stress brings me down.
So I go to you, O Lord, for in the chaos of this world you are my only hope.
Let my heart know that in an instant of faith and trust in you all my fear can be shattered, and I break free.
For my soul knows, as it has always known, it can trust and rest in you.
For that reason, my soul seeks its Savior.
Christ alone saves my soul. My deepest need now met brings me a calm heart, a humble heart, as the love of God quiets the raging waters of my soul.
By your loving grace make it so. Set me free in Christ.
In Jesus name I pray,
