Let us first pray.
Dear Father, the question is not whether I have anxious thoughts, it is how can I control them? You know how these thoughts tend to control me. I know this does not please you. Will you please forgive me where I have listened to my worries instead of You? Lord, I want to have a godly testimony even in stressful times. I need you to train me how to respond rightly to my emotions and feelings rather than follow them or outright reject them. Only You can help me and on You I now call for help. In Christ's Name, Amen.
