It can all overwhelm us like a thick shadow

If you’ve found yourself battling worry recently,
this 30-day prayer guide will help you
pray and focus on God’s Word. Every day for the next 30
days, there will be a specific prayer to combat
fear and anxiety. Some days there will be an
opportunity to read a related article, or watch a
short video. Other days you’ll be encouraged to
journal or write down your thoughts on a related
prompt. Every day will have at least one verse
for you to study and pray through.
You can start this prayer challenge any day of
the month, but it might be easier to start at the
beginning of the month, just to keep track of the
days. If you do miss a day, just pick up with the
corresponding day and, if you have time, you
can go back to the days you’ve missed.

When you feel like you’re in the storm– No matter what swirls around us, God promises to be our perfect peace.
He assures us He is constantly with us, strengthening and supporting us. Pray that God will help you
to keep your eyes and focus on Him, not on the circumstances surrounding you. Ask Him to help you
grown in your trust, believing He is faithful to see us through.
Mark 4:39-40, Isaiah 41:10, John 16:33
Write: In your journal, think of the top 5 or so things in your life right now that are causing you worry,
fear, or anxiety. Give those things over to God now in prayer. Ask him to relieve your fears and help
you remember His truth. Invite the Holy Spirit to begin to calm your soul by replacing the fear with the
words of truth you just read. Write down the promises from the passages in Mark, Isaiah and John.
When fear begins to creep in, re-read these promises and thank God for His steadfast love.
