Prayer for Anxiety

Dear Lord, I need you now because I am full of stress and anxiety. Reading your Word brings comfort, as I ask you to come and take my heavy burdens. I take each burden, one by one, and lay them at your feet. Please carry them for me so that I don't have to. Replace them with your humble and gentle yoke so that I will find rest for my soul today. I receive your gift of peace of mind and heart. Thank you that I can lie down tonight in peace and sleep. I know that you, Lord, will keep me safe. I am not afraid because you are always with me. Please keep me daily, Lord, in your perfect peace. Amen.

I'm facing an exciting but scary week meeting lots of clergy--almost all male--at my jurisdiction's Synod. And leading inclusive language workshops and services to an uncertain reception. Prayers for guidance and peace of mind would be much appreciated.
