Praying these short verses can set your heart, mind, and spirit at ease.
The LORD is good to those who wait for him,
a refuge on the day of distress,
Taking care of those who look to him for protection,
when the flood rages …
2 Corinthians 4:8-10
We are afflicted in every way, but not constrained; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body.
Though I walk in the midst of dangers,
you guard my life when my enemies rage.
You stretch out your hand;
your right hand saves me.
I will rejoice and be glad in your mercy,
once you have seen my misery,
[and] gotten to know the distress of my soul.
We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.
I raise my eyes toward the mountains.
From whence shall come my help?
My help comes from the LORD,
the maker of heaven and earth.
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you.
Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and God of all encouragement, who encourages us in our every affliction, so that we may be able to encourage those who are in any affliction with the encouragement with which we ourselves are encouraged by God.
The one thing you most need after a day (or week) that just wouldn’t end
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
A prayer for the days you just can’t take it anymore
