    Please pray for me, I just feel really scared right now. Struggling with anxiety and I can't stop crying. I don't think I'll be getting any sleep tonight. I've been dealing with some awful intrusive thoughts and I keep praying to God to let the things I fear be lies. I don't want to deal with this anymore. I don't feel good at all. I'm feeling paranoid. And intrusive thoughts keep popping into my about terrible things happening. Things I would never want to happen. Please pray that my family and I will be safe and that they will get saved please.

    [26] Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

    Sorry I really don't really understand. I can't tell if you are referring to a specific life situation that has you stressed, or more of an unexplainable anxiety. Can't tell what is meant by 'Awful intrusive thoughts.'

    Intrusive thoughts are unwanted, involuntary, & irrational thoughts that pop into your head and cause distress. A lot of times the type of intrusive thought that pops into a person' head are things they consider abhorrent or scary what if thoughts. It's a part of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Life has been really stressing me out. My family's dealing with money problems. My mom's dealing with health issues like chronic pain, but my anxiety's gotten so bad that I'm afraid to work or try things. She needs my help, but I feel so useless. I wish I could just suck it up and do something help. I don't want to be be a mooch or a burden. I barely like leaving the house. My self esteem is really low. I wish I could change into the person I'm supposed to be faster. I avoid anything that makes me uncomfortable so I'm not living much of a life. I'm not coping at all in life. Sometimes I want to curl into ball and skip all the pain and ugliness this world has to offer. I want me and my family to be safe, and I want to feel safe.

    I haven't seen a psychiatrist since I was diagnosed with OCD and depression back in February. It was a really awful experience. I'm not sure what step to take but I've been praying for God's help and direction. I have so many scriptures written down on index cards and I've been muttering them constantly under breath. I carry them with almost everywhere and I keep in my bed at night. I've been desperately trying to cling to God's word.

    Look, seek medical help as well as putting Off first in your life.

    I suffer bad anxiety and depression. I take meds. Have been for over 15 years. It's not easy. It can be a heavy cross to bear. Offer up your suffering to God.

    God bless you

    Getting saved spiritually is up to you. The ball is in your court. God is waiting for you to repent of your sins, trust in Him and invite Jesus to become your Savior and Lord to save You from the penalty of your sins, and to receive eternal life, and then He will save you. Father, may this one get into reading Your Word, know more about what salvation brings, and how to know You better, and how to live the Christian life and reap the benefits, like having peace instead of fear. Amen.

    I am wondering if you are on any kind of medication that could contribute to those feelings and might need some doctor consultation. For just one example,
    Ritalin can cause feelings of paranoia. Also, a disease like Addison - weak adrenals - can cause a lot of anxiety.

    Praying you will get any help you need and be fine.

    I'm sorry to hear about your distress. I'm wondering, have you ever given into Jesus 100% at any point in your life? And if so was there ever a super intense natural high that resulted from doing so, a specific type of natural high that never ever surfaces outside of meditation on Jesus? A natural high that can literally melt stress away at times? I'm interested in your answer because of your experiences! I have spent many years abandoning Christianity, many many times!! Anyway, I found that there was a point in my life when I SINCERELY prayed Jesus into my life (age 18). It was almost as if I made some kind of 'Emotional Pact' with him from that point on, a pact that I could no longer seem to back out of (no matter how much I wanted out, and boy did I want out many times). Before 18 I could do anything I wanted and sleep like a baby. After 18 I all the sudden was the poster child for insomnia. Now on the positive side...after 18 there existed this very specific natural high that ONLY existed for me in a state of Jesus meditation. But I spent years and years walking out on Jesus, and sleep and stress was very very horrible for me.

    So after 18 two things changed, #1 I had higher rates of stress when I 'Dumped Jesus' (which was by far the norm and not the exception). And #2 there was this natural high at my disposal that was never there before 18, nor does it ever exist outside of Jesus thoughts. Where am I going with this? I was just wondering if maybe you prayed Jesus into your life at one time, and afterwards you have a habit of 'Dumping Him' in some sort of way on a regular basis? Or I'm wondering if maybe you never actually legitimately prayed him into your life at all, but think you did? In which case maybe you have no idea what I'm talking about with these unique Jesus natural highs.

    If I'm 100% wrong about this I apologize. But I figured why not take a stab at it in case I'm right. It's definitely true that in my experience that once you 'Pray Jesus into your life' you make a pact, and you can no longer back out of the deal...you are forever on a higher rate of stress when you have your back turned to him. Believe I've been living in this pact for over 20 years, let's call it the 'Post Saved' lifestyle pact. Recently in life I had nothing left and I gave into Jesus out of pure exhaustion. Sleep has been a lot better. Stress has been so much lower. Again I apologize if I'm wrong! I'm no expert, I was just wondering if maybe you're like I was??

    My friend you need to call on Jesus, he'll answer in some way. Ask him to help you and give him all your cares because he cares for you. I'll pray for you too. The Holy Spirit will comfort you, let him take over and he'll give you a peace that passes all understanding.

    I got saved back in 2014. I came from a Jehovah's Witnesses' background (I never ever officially became one, but I had relatives like my grandmother who told me that was "The Truth". I did my own research because so many doctrines of theirs caused a great deal of anxiety and they didn't make of sense. It was really hard finding out that something I thought to be true was a lie. I didn't know what the truth was, but then I stumbled upon a site that talked God's love and compassion with Scripture backing it up. And it was something clicked in my head and I became convinced that Jesus is God and that is the truth, not religion. So I simply confessed that Jesus is Lord.

    I still haven't found the right church yet, but it's something I pray about constantly. I can't say that I've ever "Dumped Jesus". Yes, there have been times when I avoided certain sermons or not read my bible because it triggered anxiety, but even when I've been mad at God I told him so and continued to pray at night before I got to bed. Even if my prayer is just a rehash of things I've already asked for (I've been noticing that my prayers are kind of redundant but I try not to beat myself up about it).
