A Prayer from Me for You

Dear Heavenly Father,

My heart aches for them because I can relate. I know that You love them so very much. It is my prayer that they would know and remember that Your grace is sufficient for them.

In Jesus’ Name I Pray,

Additional Verses to Bring You Comfort

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. Proverbs 12:25

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Matthew 6:25-27
