Keller: Letting go of anxiety

Published 11:45 am Wednesday, August 17, 2022

Fear and Faith are both powerful forces, and the one you surrender to will control you.  If fear controls you, your life will be a negative existence.  You will live with anxiety, which is a state of being uneasy and concerned about what the future holds for you.

The following is a prayer for anyone who might want to let go of anxiety:

 

Dear God,

My mind is troubled and my heart is

Overwhelmed

I’m stressed and it’s affecting me

Physically, emotionally, and mentally.

I can’t seem to concentrate on anything

but worry

Forgive me for worrying so much

Instead of coming to you in prayer.

Help me to let go of this anxiety

Help me to cast all my worries onto you

Teach me to be patient and have faith

That at the right time,

You will make all things beautiful in my life

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

 

Faith, on the other hand, realizes that God holds the future and He tells us to be strong and of good courage, and do it.  Do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord, your God, will be with you.  He will not leave you nor forsake you.
