Prayer for Anxiety
Windowofworld.com – One appropriate way to eliminate anxiety is to prayer. It is because of this prayer that we surrender everything back to the Almighty. Every human being must often feel afraid, worried or anxious, when faced with the pressures of life problems that are increasingly pressing, or more pressing. This feeling in the end often makes people able to do wrong or stupid actions.
Some simple examples, there are people who are so afraid of facing death, there are people who feel worried because of the economic problems of families that are so difficult, there are people who feel anxious about not getting a life partner.
These are all simple examples that often make many people so nervous about all these problems. Even things like this happen a lot in the lives of believers, even if someone says he believes, it means there is no need to fear right?
Let us as believers try to answer this question honestly, and then consider for ourselves whether our answer is correct or it turns out to be wrong. If there are questions like this;
Do you really believe in God in the Lord Jesus Christ? What is your answer my brother ?. If you say that “yes I believe”.
If you believe in God, why are you so afraid of dying right now because you are experiencing an illness that the doctor says your life time will not be long.
If you say that you believe in God, why are you still worried now because of the economic problems that crush you, so you are afraid to face this life.
If you say that you believe in God, why are you so anxious because until now you still haven’t got a life partner, or there are various other anxieties that are sweeping over you right now.
The so-called trust in God, means that whatever we are facing right now will not be able to make us feel afraid, worried or anxious, because we know that the person we believe in, that is, God created the heavens and the earth, He will certainly be able to help us in dealing with various problems, and whatever the problem.
So if you are still afraid, worried, or worried about the state of your life, can that be said to believe in God? That is the same as you do not believe in God. If so then at this time you should be able to get rid of your thoughts of fear, worry, and anxiety that are controlling your heart and mind so that your faith will be shaken.
How do you get rid of fear, worry and anxiety?
Maybe this is the question in your heart right now. Why are you still afraid, why are you still worried, why are you still anxious, the answer is only one, you do not leave all your fears, worries and anxieties in God’s hands. God’s Word says;
I Peter 5: 7 Leave all your worries to him, because he cares for you.
Turning all the problems of our lives into God’s hands is part of the step of faith that shows we believe in God. Of course after we leave all our problems in the hands of God, it does not mean we then just stand by, but we must continue to live life with full responsibility, then in the journey we will see God’s help that will come on time.
Philippians 4: 6 Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God.
Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I say to you, Do not worry about your life, what you want to eat or drink, and do not worry about your body, what you want to use. Is not life more important than food and the body more important than clothing?
Luke 12: 6 Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Even so, none of them is forgotten by God, 12: 7 not even your head hair is numbered. Therefore do not be afraid, because you are more valuable than many sparrows.
Luke 12:25 And which of you by worrying can add an hour to his life?
Luke 12:29 So don’t worry about what you eat or what you drink and don’t worry about your heart.
Believers who truly believe in God will also believe in God’s promises. From the verses of the truth of God’s word above, isn’t that all God’s promise to all believers?
If so why are we still afraid, why are we still worried, why are we still worried?
What we need to do is to surrender our entire lives in God’s hands, and let God control all our movements. Let God take over all our lives, and don’t arrange our lives according to our own desires, because what we see is good, that is not necessarily what God sees as good for us.
Dear brother, Lord Jesus, after we put all our lives in God’s hands, so now whatever we are facing, we must give thanks in everything. So it’s not the time to get physical blessings, healing, or miracles, then we want to give thanks. God’s Word says;
I Thess. 5:18 Give thanks in all things, for this is what God wants in Christ Jesus for you.
This is what God wants from our lives as believers, because by doing so we want to declare that whatever happens with our lives, He is still a trustworthy God. If He is able to create this heaven and earth, then He will also be able to care for us according to His will.
Romans 8:28 We know that God is working in all things to bring good to those who love him, to those who are called according to His purpose.
So when we truly believe in God, fear, worry and anxiety can no longer control our hearts and minds, because a person who believes in God means that he has given up all of his life belongs to God. If so, then think like what the word of God says;
Romans 14: 8 For if we live, we live for God, and if we die, we die for God. So whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
People who believe in God do not mean they will continue to live in a comfort zone, which allows them to enjoy the pleasures of the world with all their desires. It is precisely when we truly believe in God, then there are various life problems that God allows that to occur in our lives as a test of our faith in God. Pay attention to what the word of God says below;
James 1: 2 Think of it as happiness, brothers and sisters, when you fall into various trials, 1: 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 1: 4 And let perseverance obtain ripe fruit, so that you may be perfect and whole and lack nothing.
This is the true Christian life, because the purpose of our faith in God is not only to solve the problem of eating, drinking, using, and sickness or soul mate problems, but faith in God must lead us to be perfect just like God the Father in heaven is perfect.
The ultimate goal of our faith is to reach the perfection that God the Father in heaven wants, so that in the end we can become His legitimate children, and who will receive the glorious inheritance provided by God the Father in heaven, and will abide in His church in eternity.
May this truth make us understand how we can eliminate fear, worry and anxiety, as long as we live in this world. God bless us all. Amen
