Prayer for When You Feel Helpless

A distressed woman prays

When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.—Matthew 9:36 (NIV)

When you feel harassed, distressed or helpless, turn your thoughts toward Jesus. Lay your concerns at His feet. Do your best to trust Him with the worries that weigh on your heart. Know that He will never lead you astray.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, when I am upset, calm my fears with Your peace. Help me trust You completely.
