Military Mondays: 10 Bible Verses To Pray Over During Deployment

I have always been a big believer in the power of prayer. In good times and bad, prayer has gotten me through it all. I've found that throughout the various stages of my life, different Bible verses have helped give me clarity and peace about whatever I was facing. 

Deployment is one of those times where the power of prayer can be hugely beneficial. When my heart is anxious, I know these verses can help calm me down and give me the perspective I need. The cool thing about the Bible is that it wasn't written for one specific audience. It was written for all. What I find helpful being a military wife, someone else will find helpful for an entirely different reason. Even if you aren't a military wife going through deployment, I encourage you to check out these 10 verses and pray over them this week!

Romans 8:28- For we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. 

John 16:33- In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world. 

Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope. 

Matthew 6:34- Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. 

Proverbs 3:5-6- Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. 

Philippians 4:6-7- Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 

Matthew 11:28- Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 

Psalm 55:22- Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you. He will never let the righteous be shaken. 

1 Peter 5:6-7- Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 

Psalm 56:3- When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

And read it I did! ;) I love all of these verses. These verses have so much meaning to me because all them played a huge part in my healing through my season of severe anxiety and depression. These verses are absolutely wonderful! I used to write them on the mirrors and on note cards and stick the cards all over the house. Considering things that have been going on in the world, I think I might need to do that again to help keep my mind on God's strength and to remember to cast all my anxiety on Him. I'm so thankful for a God who does care and wants to hold us through everything.
