Prayer For Emotional Protection

Dear Father,

Remind us that you have not given us the spirit of fear. Fill us with your power, love, and give us a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

Remind us that you are not the author of confusion, but of peace. Take away disturbing and confusing thoughts, and fill our minds with your peace. (1 Corinthians 14:33)

Don't let us worry about anything. Instead, enable us to pray about everything. Earnestly, humbly, and with thanksgiving, let us make our requests know to you. May your peace, which passes all understanding, keep our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6,7)

Please heal our broken hearts and bind our wounds. (Psalm 147:3)

Cause us to fill our minds with things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report. If there is any virtue or praise, let us dwell on those things. (Philippians 4:8)

Keep us in perfect peace, because our mind is stayed on you and we trust you. (Isaiah 26:3)

Don't let us be carnally minded, which leads to death. May we be spiritually minded, which is life and peace. (Romans 8:6)

Teach us how to cast all our care on you, for you care for us. You will sustain us and never let the righteous fall. (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 55:22)

Remind us that we didn't receive a spirit that makes us a slave to fear, but we received the Spirit of Sonship. Because of this we can cry to you intimately, "Abba, Father." (Romans 8:15)

May we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:6)

In the name of Jesus we pray,
