Trying to build a prayer life can be difficult—whether you don’t know how to pray or you don’t feel like praying. So we’re here to help you connect with God with simple prayers for the everyday.

The Future Is Scary?

It’s so easy to be overwhelmed by what hasn’t happened yet. Sometimes thinking about the future is exciting because that’s where our dreams can come true. But oftentimes, it’s stressful to think about what’s to come. The future can fill us with anxious worry.

It can be encouraging to read Bible verses about time and the future, like Ecclesiastes 3:11:

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

But sometimes, it’s hard for the truth that God’s got it all under control to really sink in. Maybe you’re already convinced the future IS scary. Or maybe, you haven’t yet realized, “I am worried about the future,” but now that we said something (sorry about that) it’s clear that the unknowns of tomorrow are affecting today.

Either way, we wanted to invite you to join us in praying this “prayer for when I am worried about the future.”

A Prayer for When I Am Worried about the Future

Time Maker, Time Giver—who fashioned the rhythm of the seasons, and gives us the gift of life—help me trust in the goodness of the story you are writing from beginning to end. When I’m worried about my needs, remind me of your faithful provision. When I’m worried about tomorrow, bring me back to your presence with me today. And when I can’t escape the anxiousness of what could come, pour out your peace in my heart and mind. Amen.
