When your mind is flooded with doubt
Sometimes in the midst of pressures and stress, our minds can start spinning out of control. We find
ourselves creating problems that don’t even exist, doubt and worry can overwhelm us and take control.
Pray that God will help you to take every thought captive in obedience to Christ, that you would choose to
set your thoughts on Him, that His peace and rest will guard your heart and mind in Christ.
Psalm 62:5, Philippians 4:8, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
When you feel like
you’ve drifted or lost
When we start to feel distant fromGod, or feel like we’ve lost our way, God is still there. He waits for us
to return and offers forgiveness and grace. Out of His Presence is anxiety and fear, but in Him, there is
abundant life, purpose, and joy. Ask God’s forgiveness for what you need to make right with Him, thank
Him for covering of care, for His huge mercy and love. Pray for His help and wisdom in staying close to
Him, believing thereis protection and goodness there.
1 John 1:9, Psalm 103:12, John 10:10
When you find it too hard to forgive
Unforgiveness toward others or even toward ourselves can be controlling and consuming. It can breed
bitterness and anxiety. Don’t let it win. Pray that God will help you to let go of where you’ve been
wronged, even when it’s hard, choosing to forgive, determined to walk in love, knowing that His grace
and forgiveness covers all. Pray that God will help you to release every past mistake to Him, and walk
in the freedom and peace He brings.
Matthew 18:21-22, Colossians 3:13, Ephesians 4:32
When you’re afraid of what others
think of you
Sometimes we can let the fear of others or our desire to please
people drive our thoughts and dictate our actions. That’s never a
wise path to follow, it will always lead to defeat and disillusionment.
God reminds us that the fear of man is a trap, but His perfect love
casts out all fear.Pray He would show you what changes you need
to set in place today, so you care more about living for Him, and less
about striving to please others.
1 John 4:18, Psalm 27:1, Proverbs 29:25
