We have developed this collection of prayers for you to use for specific situations. Let’s start with social anxiety.
When I was growing up, I had good friends but always felt nervous around others. I didn’t have a lot of self-confidence and questioned everything I said or did. It often took me time to warm up to new friendships. When I got older, my friends used to tell me this was due to social anxiety.
Dear God, I come to you today humbled and grateful that you give me the ability to speak with others. Today, I am also coming to you with a plea for help in conquering my social anxiety. I know that this problem is one of the many things about myself and about life that is out of my control. Please grant me the strength and courage to overcome this fear so that I can begin to grow in my relationships with others. In Jesus name, Amen
When I am in the midst of a panic attack, my prayer of choice is ‘God Help Me’ repeated over and over again. My first response is usually ‘why didn’t I think to pray that sooner?’ Most times though, I am very concerned about what others may be thinking or saying in response to the way I am acting. In these moments, my anxiety displaces me from reality and I focus on my own inner torment instead of reaching out to those around me who have already been through their own struggles with depression or mental illness.
Prayer for social anxiety
I trust that you will call me with my social anxiety in the situation I’m facing today. Lift this burden from me and help me handle it with your guidance.” A prayer like this can lift your spirit before you ever face stress in the moment of interacting with someone else.
I come before you today and ask that you help me with my social anxiety. I want to be a good example to others and be able to connect with people in a meaningful way, but all of the things that make me anxious prevent me from doing so.
Please give me the strength to step outside of myself and realize that what matters most is who I am as an individual, not what others think of me. Please give me the courage to be myself and let go of feelings of inadequacy or self-doubt.
Help me find peace within myself so that I may feel confident enough to reach out to others without fear of rejection or judgement. Help me find acceptance within myself so that I may accept others for who they are without judgment or prejudice.
Help me see others as children of God who have been given gifts by you for their own benefit and for our benefit as well—for we all benefit when we bring people together through love, compassion, understanding, and forgiveness.

scripture prayer for fear and anxiety
I am so constantly anxious about everything. I worry about what people think of me, whether they’ll like me, whether they’ll accept me and my flaws—and it’s all because I’m scared that if I don’t do everything perfectly, they won’t love me.
But you know what? You love me just as I am. You created me this way, and you made me strong enough to get through anything. You knew what I would face in this world, but you still gave me the courage to face it. So when I feel so small and insignificant in front of other people, remind me that you know my heart and that your love for me is unconditional. Let this prayer be a reminder of how much you love me even when my social anxiety gets the best of me:
“Lord, thank you for loving me unconditionally.”
