Jen Guidry > JoyfulLivingToday > A Prayer for When I am Anxious

Sometimes, I wake up with some anxiety. I play my upcoming busy day in my head over and over, which is silly, because really, I don’t know how it is going to go. 
I did that this morning when I woke my own self up thinking about the million things that I have to get done today…at 3am. I literally just made my very long day even longer worrying about things that haven’t even happened yet. What a waste.
Once I realized what I was doing to myself, I started praying. It slowed my roll a lot, so I thought that I would share it because it put things into perspective.
Be
Be still
Be still and know
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Be still
Be
I just keep on saying it that way over and over again. A calm washed over me and I stopped thinking about work and started thinking about God. He wants us to “be still” to rest. Stop fighting. To just “be” for a time and to trust Him and know that He’s got me.
The next time you are feeling anxious, try that prayer and let God take over.
