Prayers in times of anxiety

God our healer, who walked upon the chaotic waters
And said to the storm ‘Be still’, you know the frailty of our hearts,
How easily anxiety can overwhelm us.  Set us free we pray from the curse and burden of anxiety,
And by the miracle of your grace, show us how perfect love casts out fear.
For your love’s sake Amen

(Patrick Woodhouse).

Lord in these days of mercy, Make us quiet and prayerful,
In these days of challenge, Make us stronger in you
In these days of emptiness, Take possession of us
In these days of waiting, open our hearts to the mystery of your cross.

(Angela Ashwin).

Keep us good Lord
Under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious
Be with those who care for the sick,
And lift up all who are brought low
That we may find comfort
Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
In Christ Jesus our Lord.
