A Prayer for When You Feel Overwhelmed

I don’t know about you all, but lots of things have been going on around my place. Days that were supposed to be less busy get filled up quickly. So today I want to pray for us when we feel overwhelmed.


Father God some days this world seems to attack us from all sides. We feel the stress of responsibilities, crazy schedules, relationships are difficult, and life feels out of control. And in reality it is out of our control. But it is in Your control. Father we pray for Your peace that passes understanding when things in life go crazy. We pray that You will be our anchor in the storm of difficult things, comedy of errors, and the lonely times. Father remind us that when we are weak, then we can be truly strong. When we rest in Your plans then we can walk the roads you marked for us. Father help us to trust each event, each step we take, to Your leading and direction. Help us to pour our hearts out to You when we feel buried under by circumstances. Remind us that we are victorious in You. May we never lose sight of the joy You have in store for us in heaven. Thank You Jesus for loving us so much. Thank You for paying the price for our victory on the cross. May we live worthy of Your sacrifice. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
