Prayers for mental health
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
Please help me with this anxiety that I’m feeling right now. I don’t want to feel this way, but I am bringing these strong emotions to you. Heal me and help me get to the bottom of why I’m feeling like this.
In Your strong name, I ask this. Amen
“Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34
In my mind, I know that you are the God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Teach me to live each day without fear or anxiety. I put my trust in you today. I commit everything that has been and everything that will be into Your hands. Teach me to trust you with the faith of a little child.
In Your strong Name, I pray this. Amen

Prayers for mental health and stability
“Cast your cares on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. Psalm 55:22
Thank you, God, that you are kind and patient.
You are gentle with us when we feel overwhelmed. I remind myself today that you are present, available, and interested in me and the things I am going through. I ask you to execute your justice, as it says in Isaiah, for the times when others have wronged me. Please forgive me for the times when I have forgotten about you or mistreated others.
Lead me on the path of everlasting joy. Amen.
“A bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.
In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;”

Dear God, I pray against a spirit of fear.
I pray that you will deliver me from evil and all its influences. I know that you will strengthen and help me, and that you will uphold me and help me build a healthy and good life based on your truth and promises. Let me experience your peaceful presence today in everything that I do. Guide me away from situations and people that would be harmful, and help me to have the courage and strength to resist temptation when it comes.
In Your strong Name I pray this. Amen.
