Bible Verses Useful in Warding off Anxiety

Several Bible verses remind us that no matter how anxiety-producing the situation, the God is with us.

I’m leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So, don’t be troubled or afraid. (John 14:27)

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters … they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God" (Isaiah 43:1-3).

He (God) comforts us whenever we suffer. That is why whenever other people suffer, we are able to comfort them by using the same comfort we have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:24)

Blessed are those who mourn. They will be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:20)

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

I consider our present sufferings insignificant compared to the glory that will soon be revealed to us. (Romans 8:18)

Dear friends, don’t be surprised by the fiery troubles that are coming in order to test you. Don’t feel as though something strange is happening to you, but be happy as you share Christ’s sufferings. Then you will also be full of joy when he appears again in his glory. (I Peter 4:12-13)

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)

Let not your heart be troubled. You are entrusting God, now trust in Me. (John 14: 1).

I will never fail you nor forsake you. (Heb. 13:5)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wing’s as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. (Psalm 23:61).

God, who shows you his kindness and who has called you through Christ Jesus to his eternal glory, will restore you, strengthen you, make you strong, and support you as you suffer for a little while. (I Peter 5.-10)

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There won’t be any more death. There won’t be any grief, crying, or pain, because the first things have disappeared. (Revelation 21:4)

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)

Create in me a clean heart, a God; and renew a right spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10)

Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

If any of you are having trouble, pray. If you are happy, sing psalms. (James 5:13)

That is why we are not discouraged. Though outwardly we are wearing out inwardly we are renewed day by day. (2 Corinthians 4:16)

But he told me: “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” So I will brag even more about my weaknesses in order that Christ’s power will live in me. Therefore, I accept weakness, mistreatment, hardship, persecution, and difficulties suffered for Christ. It’s clear that when I’m weak, I’m strong. (2 Corinthians 12.-9-10)

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit

and at the hour of our death.
Amen

I too will say a prayer for you. I do understand as I have suffered with anxiety problems of some sort most of my life at one time or another. I also have a daughter who suffers from OCD/anxiety and has been seeing a pyscologist and also is on medication now. It has helped her. My son also suffers from anxiety related to school. God bless you!

I want to thank everyone for their prayers. I have been praying the Rosary often and asking Mary for intercession.

I need to remember that changes will be gradual. I always want to run before I can walk. I know that God wants me to be healed, but I won’t be changed overnight. This is the hardest part.

Still praying very hard for you!

Thank you Anne Mary for your kind words and may God bless you,I think that Its so cool for people of different faiths to come together and pray for each other without fighting over whos right and whos wrong about our faiths.The reason I come to your forums was to try to learn more about your faith and not argue about them but try to understand each other and respect them and each other,may God give you more blessings than you can ever hold,mitch,your friend always.:slight_smile:
