About Anxiety

Affecting 40 million adults, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the United States. According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 13 globally suffers from anxiety. The source of anxiety disorders can stem from a variety of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.

Those who suffer from anxiety disorder also commonly suffer from depression (and vice versa). Generalized anxiety, panic, social anxiety, phobias, OCD, PTSD, and various depressive disorders are all common types of anxiety disorders.

While it is highly treatable, relatively few (about one-third) of those get treatment for their anxiety and depression. Therapy, medication, and other treatments are common approaches that have been successful.

Prayers for Anxiety

 

When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You that You understand the waves of anxiety that can flood our soul within so deeply.  When those waters seem to overwhelm us, will You help us to look up to You? We long to be consoled, and that is exactly what You tell us You have to offer us. Thank You for the Word spoken from Your own heart for us: YOUR joy can rest inside of us, right here in the midst of our anxieties.

In the name of Your son, Jesus, we pray,

Amen.

Breaking Anxiety’s Grip: How to Reclaim the Peace God Promises

Michelle Bengtson

Ours is an age of anxiety. We worry about our children, jobs, homes, health, and finances. News and social media feed our fears. Even the fear of missing out leads to anxiety. The solution isn’t to rid ourselves of the sources of anxiety but to recognize that anxiety originates from a spiritual influence–and then use the weapons of power, love, and a sound mind to fight back and live in God’s peace.

Anxious: Choosing Faith in a World of Worry

Amy Simpson

Our culture is frantic with worry. We stress over circumstances we can’t control, we talk about what’s keeping us up at night and we wring our hands over the fate of disadvantaged people all over the world, almost as if to show we care and that we have big things to care about. Worry is part of our culture, an expectation of responsible people.

How can we live life abundantly, with joy, as God has called us to do, when we’re consumed by anxiety?
