Encouraging Words When Feeling Overwhelmed
God designed us to be able to handle a lot of things, and He made a promise that He would not give us more than we could bear .
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Cor. 10:13
However, life throws a lot at us sometimes, and we begin to question just how much more we can endure.
Events and situations happen in our lives.
When these things clash simultaneously, it causes chaos, disruption, and anxiety.
The rhythm of our daily lives goes berserk.
Something as simple as getting the kids off to school, trying to find your missing keys while your toddler has an accident and needs their clothes changed is undoubtedly overwhelming.
If you have lost your job, the bills are piling up, and your car breaks down at the same time, one will definitely be overwhelmed.
Whatever your situation may be, we must stop and give it to the Lord.
He will take the weight and burden of your situation and carry it for you.
Do you have things going on in your life that you need God’s help with?
Do you feel like you can’t take anymore?
Prayer When Feeling Overwhelmed
Thank you for revealing my weaknesses in trying to carry the burden and stress of my situation. Forgive me for trying to handle it all on my own and for allowing it to consume and rob me of my peace. I know that anxiety, fear, worry, and anger are not Godly reactions.
Father, my emotions teeter on the edge when things don’t go smoothly, and I find my thoughts, and my heart are being pulled in multiple directions. Instead of approaching each event individually, I simply react to them as a whole with no resolve. I want to run away from the problem instead of facing it head-on.
Give me the wisdom and clarity to see the solution to things. Equip me with patience, wisdom, love, compassion, and guidance to be able to overcome and move forward. When I am tempted to run away and hide, I pray that your heavy conviction would be upon me, so I heed your voice and instruction.
Help me to seek refuge and strength in your Word and to gain the right perspective over my situation. I pray that your scripture would refresh my spirit.
Father, forgive me when I try to protect myself from life’s trials, and I forget that your truth is the ultimate solution to overcome. I give you my anxiety about things I cannot change. Forgive me for not trusting in you enough to give it all to you, Lord. You are my protector and the one who watches over me.
Help me to invest in myself by reading your Word and spending time in prayer. By doing this, I will be able to handle the chaos of unplanned events better. Restore my mind, my heart, my body, and my soul Father.
Thank you for your mercy and saving grace precious Lord.
I pray these things, in Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Prayer When Feeling Overwhelmed (2)
Right now I am feeling so overwhelmed. I’m overcomed with so many emotions that I don’t even know how to define them.
But you know, Father.
You know the intentions of my heart. You know every thought before I even think it. Your Word says that even when I’m not quite sure how to pray, your Holy Spirit is interceding for me with groanings too deep for words.
So I pray, now, that you would take all the anguish within me and replace it with peace.
I pray desperately that you would change the circumstances around me and relieve me of this difficult trial I am going through.
But if that is not your will, God, then change me instead. Help me to see that you are greater than the storms of this life.
I am more than a conqueror through Christ, and He is surely able to overcome anything. I am so grateful that my ability to overcome this life is not dependent on me; you have already won the battle, and I just need to rest in the victory.
The suffering I am facing is heavy. But I am sure that you will bring me through it.
In the worst of my pain, when I am overwhelmed by too many feelings to put into words, help me to remember your many promises.
If you are for me, then nothing can be against me. I affirm this and ask for your guidance in Jesus’ name. Amen.
