Please pray for me


#1

I'm having horrible anxiety attacks.


#2

A person very close to me is having anxiety attacks also, and I pray for her, so I will pray for you also, as I am becoming aware of how sad all this can be. I don't know what's the matter, why there seems no consolation, or very slow and tiny steps at a time, but there must be a reason, and we know that God can bring good out of every evil. Hang in there, have faith, pray in your own words, look about you for signs of hope and for beautiful things. Write some more if it helps.

God bless you today and tonight and tomorrow...


#3

Praying for you and asking St. Dymphna to pray for you as well.


#4

I will pray for you that if it please the Lord, your anxiety attacks will disappear, along with their cause, in Jesus' name. Amen.


#5

Praying.


#6

I will pray for you.

*I had anxiety attacks for years and still have some break through anxiety.
I take a lot of medication for Mild Schizophrenia and am pretty much
anxiety free now twenty years later. I have more paranoia than anxiety.
Anxiety is the worst. I will pray for you. You can private message or email me.

May God rise up to destroy the fear and anxiety in your heart, Polly. May He shower you and surround you with His loving care and Peace. I’m sorry I didn’t see your request sooner Polly, because I know what you are going through.

I pray you are feeling better today. How are you? Please let me know.

Jesus, I Trust in You!

I used to have panic and anxiety attacks. I would have to take Clonopin every time this occurred. If the Clonopin didn't work and the attacks were so severe, I would pray "Jesus I Trust in You." until it became part of my breathing. That usually calmed me down.

You are in my prayers.

My strategies that I have developed over 20+ years of anxiety and panic:

 - Pray (like Pavel said) a simple and trusting prayer like “Jesus, I trust in You”
  • I take as small of a dose of Xanax as I can to take the edge off. I hate being dependent on medication (and I have weaned off all medications over the years) but sometimes you need to chip away at the panic

  • My wife is great at understanding my anxiety. Sometimes, all I need to do is tell her “I’m feeling panic” and just saying it and connecting to another person helps. Talk to someone you trust if possible

  • Walk. If it’s nighttime I walk around inside the house praying and doing relaxing breathing (In through the nose, out through the mouth almost like a whistle and blow OUT more than IN)

  • Take a shower. Make it cold or hot depending on what distracts you from your body cues that happen in anxiety

  • Do anything physical – cleaning, vacuuming, mowing grass, calisthenics

  • Make some tea. I have chamomile and green tea in the cabinet and sometimes just the act of making tea is calming

I hope anything helps you. Please feel free to send me a private message if I can do anything else for you. Peace be with you!

Our Father who art in Heaven

Hallowed be thy name

On Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

Forgive us our tresspasses, as we forgive those who tresspass against us.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
