Prayer for 1 Peter 5:7 ►
“casting all your care upon Him, because He cares about you.”
Lord I don’t want to be anxious about anything, knowing that I can cast all of my anxious thoughts on You - but how difficult I find it to cast all my care on You, before I start to worry – what often happens is that I become more and more anxious over all the difficulties of life that are crowding in on me … and eventually I turn my thoughts to You and reach out to You in my helplessness.
Lord, in my understanding of Who You are I KNOW that You always are my Rock in times of troubles and over and again I have seen You help in time of need… but very rarely do You act in the way that I expect!!
Lord I know that I am not to be anxious about the provision of life and the needs of the home - nor am I to fret over the actions and attitudes of evildoers, who seem to encompass me on every side, for I KNOW and BELIEVE that the day is coming when evildoers will wither away like the grass of the field, as Your Word teaches - while those that trust in the Lord will dwell securely, under the shadow of Your wings.
Help me Lord to cast my anxious thoughts on You BEFORE I start to fret. Help me to reach out to You in my helplessness BEFORE I try to sort things out myself – for You have promised to be my help in time of trouble – Thank You for being such a faithful God,

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You that You have kept me safely through another day. Forgive me Lord for the wrong thoughts and attitudes that I have allowed to trouble my mind today. Forgive me Lord for the times that I have allowed pressure to take away the perfect peace I have in You.
Lord – I hand the irritation of the day over to You and pray that I may rest quietly in Your loving arms and not permit any of these daily pressures to affect the refreshing sleep of peace - that You give to all Your children.
I am sorry that I have allowed the little niggles of the day to unsettle my heart and disturbed the peace that I have in You and I pray Lord, that I will not retain any wrong or damaging thoughts in my sub-conscious mind – but rather Lord I ask that my heart may be washed with the water of Your Word and filled with healing balm of Your love and truth - for Your Word is life and light...
Into Your hands I commend myself Lord, as I settle down to sleep. Wake me up tomorrow I pray, ready to serve You, for Your mercies are new every morning – great is Your faithfulness – in Jesus name I pray,

Heavenly Father, I confess that for too long I have depended on my own sufficiency and tried to work out my own problems in my own self-sufficient strength.. but I thank You, Father-God, that You care so much for me that I can cast all my burdens on You and give You all the hurts, disappointments, and worries that seem to be flooding my life today. Thank You that I have the sure knowledge that You have promised to carry every anxiety and pain. I admit, dear Father, that I am weak in myself, but praise You that I can draw on Your amazing strength today and in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
