How To Pray When You're Worried

From "The Word For You Today" - October 2007

Are you worried today? Have you lost your peace of mind? Begin to pray this prayer until it takes root in your heart and becomes your fixed attitude:

"Father, You told me not to be afraid because You are with me, You will uphold me, and those who come against me will not succeed (Is. 41:10-11). You said no evil would come upon me, nor any plague touch my home for You have ordered Your angels to protect me (Ps. 91:10-11).

You said when I walk through rivers of difficulty (when I'm in over my head) You won't let me drown, and when I walk through fires of adversity (when the heat is on) You won't allow me to get burned for You are watching over me (Is. 43:2-3).

You said no weapon formed against me shall prosper (Is. 54:17). I cannot keep the enemy's weapons from being formed, but I know You will keep them from prospering. You said if I ask anything according to Your will, You would grant my request (IJohn 5:14-15).

You said when I walk in obedience before You I will be blessed when I come in and blessed when I go out, blessed when I lie down and blessed when I get up (Dt. 28:6)

You told me to give all my troubles to You and You would take care of me (I Pet. 5:7). So here they are! Today I'm standing on Your Word. You said it! I believe it! That settles it! Amen."
