The Battle for Peace: Turning Anxiety into Prayer


Prayer is the main strategy God gives us for overcoming anxiety, so when anxious thoughts begin to dominate our thoughts that’s our cue to pray. David modelled for us in the Psalms how to deal with anxieties in prayer by instructing us to pray with gut-level honesty — what he called, “pouring our hearts out to the Lord”. It’s as we get real with God that we exchange our anxieties for His peace.
