Remember That God Is Very Near To You
From A Prayer To Soothe An Anxious Heart
By Jennifer Heeren
The psalms are a great place to go when anxieties seek to overwhelm you. They often begin with a problem and crying out to the Lord. Then they explain what they want. Finally, the Spirit within the author remembers the truths about just who God is and extreme comfort is the result. The situation may not go away but the attitude changes.
Psalm 23:4 says that even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, when I remember that the Lord is close beside me. I can remind myself often of this fact that God is indeed very near to me. Then, I don’t have to worry about fighting off my enemies. I can simply let God be God.
Dear Lord, I Thank You That I Can Come To You Always For Any Reason. I’m Grateful That When I Pray To You, You Answer Me. Help Me To Come To You At The Beginning Of My Fears And Anxieties Instead Of Waiting Until I Can’t Stand Them Anymore. The Quicker I Come To You The Better. You Want To Free Me From ALL My Fears. Help Me Look To You For Help More Often So That I Can Be Radiant With Your Joy. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
