Feelings of terror

Hi,
Every once in a while, I have periods of having feelings of extremely deep terror. I am not sure how frequently, and am not sure why I have these feelings. I don’t really think about it except when I am experiencing it. But when it happens, like it is happening now, I just feel a very deep sense of terror and fear, as if something bad is going to happen or someone is going to be hurt or something. I don’t really know. Maybe it is because the world seems like a scary place, or there is something I am consciously unaware of that is making me anxious. Maybe in the back of my mind, I am afraid someone close to me will be hurt or killed in an accident or from violence. I don’t know. But this terror can drain me emotionally and mentally and sometimes physically, and I want to talk to someone who can help me either cope with, minimize, overcome, or eliminate these feelings when they are not rational or helpful to me. I ask you to pray for me. I am going to email my pastor as well as the mental health workers I speak with about these things. Please pray I will find ways to deal with this terror I feel, and that people I seek advice and help from can give me good ideas on how to deal with it. I thank you for all prayers for this intention.
God bless you. Amen.

Praying to St. Michael the Archangel to watch over & protect you.

Praying for you…

St. Thérèse of Liseux Prayer From “Story of A Soul”

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Amen. †

Lord, thank you that you are with me right now.
Your love surpasses all fear.
I give you the anxiety I feel.
I surrender all my worries to you.
Clear my mind;
Calm my heart;
Still my Spirit;
Relax my being, that, I may
always glorify you in everything
I write, speak and do.

Amen. †

It sounds like you are experiencing something very close to a panic attack. :console: Praying for peace of mind and that God may grant you the strength to deal with it.

Jesus, I offer this intention to Your most Sacred Heart.

Our Father who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name

Eternal God in whom mercy is endless
and treasury of compassion inexhaustible
Look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us
so that in difficult moments
we may not despair
nor become despondent
but with great confidence
submit ourselves to Your holy will
which is love and mercy itself.
amen.

Many years back,I was almost robbed at night when I came home,bye a guy with a gun,he was so close that he had his one arm on my shoulder,and pointing a small gun at me,he was trying too get me too go back in the yard, were their was no street light shining into my yard,at that moment I broke loose,and ran too the front,yelling robber in the area, he jump over my back fence,I was so shaken up that I couldn,t even get the key into my door,it took a long too get over with it,but sometimes when I see some that looks strange, I will watch him. It,s something you can,t get over it will be with me in my mine the rest off my life, but I pray for the Angel.s too watch over me while I walk,and I also Our Lady to protect me from harm,

Put on your whole armor of God == the sword of truth, a shield of faith, the shoes of the gospel of peace Ephesians chapter 5. Read for the whole thing… Type it and keep it in your pocket. Seek and you shall find, Knock and the door shall open,Ask and it shall be given and God’s love will come tumbling down. Part scripture and song. If your child asked for bread would you give him a stone. If he asked for a coat would you give him a snake? Well if you being evil will give good gifts to your children will not your Father in heaven give you gifts greater than what you could ask for." It is God’s wish to give you the kingdom… Trust me my child while I give you the kingdom. Be at peace, Writer for God. My peace I leave you, My peace I give you. Become a prayer warrior for the site. Looking up scripture vs and prayers will strengthen.
Rest in the loving arms of your Father (Abba).

They say that overcoming an addiction
or habit or pattern of thinking CAN BE
DONE by REPLACING it w/ another,
try replacing the fear of the unknown
w/ a fear of God’s Laws and command-
ments(Deut. 10:12-13) But know that
God LOVES you and wants you to live
free of fear of evil!!!

St. Michael the archangel defend us in battle,
be our defense against the wickedness and
snares of the devil, may God rebuke him,

who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
