Help with Anxiety, Fears

by Shelley (PA)

Please pray for me that I may feel God’s guidance and healing; I am overwhelmed with anxiety and full of fears about everything – being alone, finances, constant fears about what will happen with my job, aging, my beloved pets, being far from family, having no one. Please pray that I strengthen my faith to know God is here and not abandoning me, I am so anxious. Please pray for calm for me in all things, especially in my faith.

  1. God will be there

    I live my whole life feeling guilty that my faith is so weak when I want it to be strong. I can say the Lord has always always blessed me in my darkest hour but still I find it so hard to trust when the next crisis comes along. The Lord will be there for you to take a deep breath and pass it all to him. May the Lord bless you infinitely.

  2. I will pray for you

    Dear lord,

    Please help Shelley find peace in her heart and send her your love to calm her and keep her protected and safe.amen

  3. Praying for you

    What ever you pray for in thanksgiving to God the Father, it is done. He knows your heart and anguish. I pray that he gives you guidance on what to do to relieve your anxiety.
    I, too, recently had a bad bout with anxiety and lost 20 pounds. I prayed day and night and thanked Jesus for his mercy and goodness. He led me to my doctor… my prayerful friend led me to a therapist….Talking with my sister brought things into perspective. I praise him daily for leading me in the right path.
    Also, Just talking with a trusted friend or colleague can help. Call or Skype the family that is far away. Making connections can be very positive.
    I pray God helps you quickly.
    God Bless You!

  10. You are not alone

    Hi Shelley, I am going through an episode of worry, fear and doubt also. But give all the glory to God for he knows what you need and he has you in his grasp. We will be fine in Jesus name. Don’t lose faith x

  11. The Lord will guide you


    I experienced what you are going through. I prayed for relief just like you. Relief came in the form of family encouragement to take action and see my doctor. I did even though I did not think it would help, but with some time it did. Because my anxiety attacks were severe, I continue to see a therapist and take medication. Now my issues with anxiety are far better and minimal at worst. I have also learned if I stop the medication because I am feeling better, I will relapse. Because I fell better today I can more clearly see and enjoy God’s works in my life. He wants you to get better. By helping yourself a bit he will help you a lot!

  15. Prayer for a permanent postion/ for my mother who is sick

    Dear Lord,
    I confess my sins, I pray for your forgiveness, and I pray that you will help me gain the stench I need to become happy. Lord you know my heart, you know my hurt, and you know that I have been struggling to find a permanent postion that I will love and appreciate. I have been employed since the age of 13, because my mother became ill, I had to be the strongest of the family, and I was. I pray the my son can look up to his mom and know that I did everything I possibly could to keep him safe, and have what he needs- with you help and my prayers. I have always believed in you and I pray you believe in me, that if I should get my prayers answered, I will honor you, and become closer, and closer to you Lord god.

  19. Never alone

    I know every single feeling that your experiencing right now. For six years I was a satanist and done some horrible things. Didn’t care about anything. Gave satan control of my life and eventually my mind. I thought it was cool. Thought it made me tough. I was so weak and vulnerable. I was walking alone in a cemetery one day. Jesus spoke to me. I was wearing an inverted cross. Long hair. Black clothes. Jesus said to me “Andrew, you WILL serve me” at that moment I raised my arms and said “Jesus I am going to serve you” but I didn’t repent and get saved until about a week later. I sat in my room and was so scared that God would be something like a police detective. If you confess then your gonna pay dearly. Absolutely not. I had nothing to lose. My life was destroying itself. I sat on my bed and called to Jesus and started confessing everything. I started with the ‘smallest’ sin I could think of that I committed. A presence came into the room from behind me. I didn’t look. I kept confessing. Each confession worse than the previous. The very last thing I could think to confess was that I invited the devil into my life. I rejected the devil and asked Jesus to save me and be my lord. The feeling that came into that room was not of this realm. It was like I was completely destroyed by God’s fire and rebuilt by his love. I lost it. I dropped to the floor and cried unlike ever before. I felt absolute peace and love and forgiveness. After every single thing I have done and said and thought, God’s forgiveness covered it completely. And he was not angry at me in the least. The Bible says God and all of heaven rejoices when a sinner repents. I got saved on October 4th 2015. The very next month I was locked in a psych ward. Scared to death that God had forsaken me. That I angered him beyond the point of his forgiveness. I had panic attack’s so inhuman that a psychiatrist told me I lost touch with reality. Every day. Every single second all I could think about was going to hell. Being the one guy God couldn’t forgive. Satan would tell me all the time that “You gave your life to ME! I OWN YOU!” and I would just cry. In walmart, at work, Hanging with friends. No matter where. I went to church one wednesday evening with two of my cousins and I had my worst panic attack there. After the service a deacon of the church came to me and shook my hand and held it and asked me what was happening with me. I told him and he asked for more detail and I told him. I told him how much satan tortures me and how afraid I am. He said “Andrew that ends tonight”. I went into a room called the ‘Prayer Closet” and there was the Pastor, the deacon, another deacon and a youth pastor. They told me that I was in spiritual warfare. That satan was trying his best to make me think God was angry at me so I would turn back to my sin. They all laid hands on me as I was sitting in a chair and they were all praying in tongues. They kept saying to me that I would pray in tongues but I couldn’t. I said to God,
    “If I cannot speak in tongues, I am going to take that as a sign from you that I cannot be forgiven”. They kept trying and I couldn’t speak in tongues. The same deacon who shook my hand and asked me questions told me to stand up. I did and they moved away the chair. He said “Hold our your hands like your receiving a gift”. I did and the pastor anointed my head with oil. He said “Bow your head and close your eyes with your hands still outstretched”. I did and my body started swaying back and forth. Then my body went stiff and they laid me on the floor and my stomach started jerking and twisting and I opened my eyes and looked at my stomach and the pastor was praying and had her eyes closed with her head straight and her hand was moving slowly to my stomach. The closer her hand got, the more my stomach would move and twist and when she touched my stomach while still praying, it was like 5,000 volts hit me. My entire body jerked, but was in no pain at all. I closed my eyes and laid back my head onto the floor. My left ankle felt like something was under my skin. I felt it moving and it started moving up my leg. Up through my knee, and that’s when the deacon started saying “Here it comes! here it comes! here it comes!”. It went up my body and into my throat and out of my mouth. My head went back and I was speaking in tongues!! Immediately I remembered what I said to God. It hit me, I could be forgiven!! But I kept struggling horrendously with awful thoughts that no person should think. Let alone a Christian. While I was speaking in tongues I felt hands grab the sides of my head. I kept my eyes closed but could feel the fingers on my head. They were spaced out just a little. I kept repeating the same phrase in tongues but I don’t know what I was saying. For a while I kept saying it and I could hear the four other members in the room with me praying in tongues as well. I finally was able to open my eyes and instantly the hands were gone. I looked and all four people were standing upright with their hands outstretched over me. With their eyes closed. I just laid there silent looking at them. They all looked down at me and helped me stand up and asked me how I was feeling and I told them it was by far the most wonderful experience I have ever had. I stood up and asked them “Who was grabbing my head when I was laying down”. The deacon told me “No one was close enough to your head to grab it. That was the Holy Spirit grabbing your head”. It was unlike anything that I thought could ever happen. That proved to me that NOTHING in your past could ever separate you from the love of God. And NOTHING can separate you from the forgiveness of God. God himself has promised** PROMISED, that he will NEVER leave you or forsake you. The blood that Jesus shed on the cross is sufficient to cover every sin that you can commit. As Jesus said, “What father can deny his child?” Why would God send his only Son to this earth to endure the worst death humanity has ever seen if there were a sin that He couldn’t forgive? God loves you with a love that the fullness of which cannot be understood. God himself said that there is nothing He would not do for you. If he has made all these promises of loyalty to you, then he has legally obligated himself to stay with you forever. Which is something I can’t wrap my head around. The sheer thought of an everlasting almighty faultless perfect blemish-free God who can do ANYTHING he wants. And he has decided to devot himself entirely to loving you and watching out for you. Going so far as to give you a guardian angel to watch out for you. When you do sin, Jesus himself is your mediator and prays to God on your behalf to forgive you and to remember your human who will make mistakes. Which doesn’t take much convincing since God is just as forgiving and loving and patient as Jesus is. So basically saying, You have not a single thing to be afraid of. Jesus said “Don’t be afraid, peace be with you”. I hope this helps you. If you wish to talk further feel free to email me and I will be more than happy to talk with you as much as you wish. I had no one to talk to. I was completely alone. I don’t wish for you to experience that.

  20. Jesus I trust in You

    I empathize with you. Sometimes, it’s all I can do just to lie down and repeat the name of Jesus until the anxiety or depression goes away. I usually try to escape my anxiety by trying to escape it and distract myself, though. This is exactly the wrong thing. Let me promise you that if you turn toward Jesus, in whatever state you are in, or pray even a decade of the Holy Rosary, He will draw close to you and reward you for turning to Him first in your time of weakness. I will pray for you, dear One in Christ.

    Please call my nerves because of my 14 year old who has been going to court and his probation officer story lie on him to keep him from coming home.Lord I need you more then anything I pray for help

  27. Please

    I live with anxiety and panic attacks every day. My throat closes up and I sweat. I get this terrible fear and I don’t know of what. I can’t leave my house, much less my room. My chest gets tight and my tummy starts to hurt. I don’t know why they come. They just do. Sometimes I can feel it as it crawls up my spine and sometimes I wake up already in a panic. I miss my mother so much. She always could bring me out of these panic and anxiety attacks. But she has gone home to be with the Lord. She left me in 2009 and I cannot seem to get over that. Please pray for me. I pray to God for His help. I just need a little more help I guess. The people who do not have these attacks are so very lucky. These attacks are so very awful I would not wish them on a single person. They are a nightmare to live with. I thank you and may God bless you all.
