7 Uplifting Prayers for an Anxious Heart

1 John 4:18
Oh Lord, help me to fear not. There is no fear in love, perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. Lord, perfect me with Your love, so that I will no longer be anxious. I pray against any fears that I hold in my heart and mind, free me from the bondage of fear so that I can walk fearlessly in You, Amen.

Mark 5:36
Faithful God, You told Your people to not be afraid and instead just believe. Father, I pray that despite what I see in front of me, I will simply believe. I pray against doubt in You and declare that my strength comes from You the true Comforter. Lord, let my heart be surrounded by peace and the knowledge that You – the Lord of Lords – are with me. I appreciate Your love and support for me Father, Amen.

Psalm 139:14 & James 1:17
Awesome God, I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made! Yes I have made mistakes and I am not perfect, but I came from You and Your works are wonderful; this I am certain of! Everything good comes from You, the Father of Lights! I thank You for making me this way, I rebuke any thoughts of self-hate, anxiety and depression, in Jesus’ Name. I pray that I see myself like You do, I pray that the discomfort that I feel within myself is removed right now, Amen.

Joshua 1:9
Author of Life, You have commanded me to be strong and of good courage! I will not be afraid, or be discouraged, for You are with me wherever I go. So Lord, I declare that I will not be anxious in anything. Lord, I pray that this truth brings peace to my heart and gives me the courage to do the things that You have asked me to. I thank You in advance for the divine peace I will experience in every aspect of my life internally and externally, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

1 Peter 5:7
Father I cast all my anxieties onto You, thank You for caring for me so that I can let go of my emotional and mental issues. Lord, I release every discomfort and unsettled feeling that I have in my heart so that I can receive more of You. I want to be consumed by You Lord so that I can feel like myself again. Lord I pray that You will consume me, instead of my anxious feelings. Let my focus be on my spiritual state so that I can feel whole mentally and emotionally too, this I pray, Amen.

Psalm 119:114 & Psalm 51:10
Eternal God, You are my refuge and my shield! When life gets too hard and the weight of life’s responsibilities become unbearable, it is You that I can turn to. I have put my hope in You and in Your Word because this never dies! Lord, I give You the thanks and give You praise for being my eternal peace. I thank You in advance for creating in me a clean heart so I do not have to carry an anxious one, renew the right spirit within me Lord, Amen.

Matthew 6:34
Great are You Lord! Your Word tells me that I do not have to worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Lord, You did not create me to worry, so today I choose to let go of my thoughts of worry because each day has enough trouble of its own. Lord renew my mind so that I do not add unnecessary concerns to my life. Lord renew my mind so that I do not have a heart filled with worry, Amen.
