Prayer To Take Every Anxious Thought Captive

Father we are told to consider the wonderful way that You provide for the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, knowing that we, who are Your children, are so much more precious to You than they are. Why do I become anxious, when I know that all I have to do is to trust You at Your Word….? Why do I spend so much of my time worrying about so many things in life…? I know that You have promised to be our Healer, our Provider, our Shepherd and our Peace - and You have been these and so much more to me, and yet Lord I am prone to anxiety and care.

Help me Lord to take captive each anxious thoughts that crosses my mind as it arises in my heart, and give it over to You - as You have instructed. Help me to, ‘take every anxious thought captive..” the moment it passes like a shadow across my heart - and hand it over to Jesus, instead of allowing it to revolve around my mind, causing anxiety in my soul to increase.

Help me to consider the birds of the air and the flowers of the field – and the heavens and the earth and all that You have made by the strength of Your mighty power – knowing that Your same mighty power is available to all Who trust in Christ as Saviour… Help me to consider Jesus and all He did for me at Calvary - and help me to take every anxious thoughs captive – and rest in Him

Amen
