a Prayer to Overcome Worry
Is your mind racing with what could become of our country, your financial security, and life as we know it?
It may SEEM like this is the time to worry. But God’s instructions regarding worry do not mention this particular circumstance as one in which we get permission.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6
I want to share with you a prayer written by Germaine Copeland. It is based on specific Scriptures that guide us in agreeing with God. Regardless our circumstances we can live in peace. The Prince of Peace is stronger than any political force in play. And He lives within me and you so that we can live above the worries of the world.
Living Free from Worry
Father, I thank You that I have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the Kingdom of Your dear Son. I commit to live free from worry in the name of Jesus, for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death.
I humble myself under Your mighty hand that in due time You may exalt me. I cast the whole of my cares (name them) – all my anxieties, all my worries, all my concerns – once and for all on You. You care for me affectionately and care about me watchfully. You sustain me. You will never allow the consistently righteous to be moved – made to slip, fall, or fail!
Father, I delight myself in You, and You perfect that which concerns me.
Take Wrong Thoughts Captive
I cast down imaginations (reasoning’s) and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of You, and I bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. I lay aside every weight and the sin of worry. I run with patience the race that is set before me, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith.
Think on These Things
I thank You Father, that You are able to keep that which I have committed unto You. I think on (fix my mind on) those things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, or good report, virtuous, and deserving of praise. I will not let my heart be troubled. I abide in Your Word, and Your Word abides in me. Therefore, Father, I do not forget what manner of person I am. I look into the perfect law of liberty and continue therein, being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the Word and, thus, blessed in my doing!
Thank You, Father. I am carefree. I walk in that peace that passes all understanding, in Jesus’ name! Amen.
