You have God-given strengths and gifts that can be pooled together with other people's strengths and gifts. What a beautiful vision of a world of people peacefully cooperating with each other!
Competitiveness comes from a belief in lack, thinking that we must beat someone else to the prize, or that there's not enough to go around. Yet, what value is the prize if we've lost our inner peace during the competitive process?
God's love is abundant and unlimited, and we mustn't project our insecurities onto believing that God made a limited world. Have faith that God does hear your prayers, and is leading you to the path where you can help others and your needs will be met.
Perhaps you've received an inspired idea for a business which will benefit the world, but you don't know how to do certain aspects of the business. Prayer can lead you to partners who bring these needed gifts, and who compliment your strengths.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, please help me to focus upon you, instead of competing with other people. Thank you for leading me to a cooperative and complimentary partnership.
And here's a supportive scripture: "So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." Matthew 6:31-33

Find the blessing in your current situation.
Everything in life can be a teaching experience which helps us to learn and grow. No experience is ever a waste, as they are all filled with opportunities to gain new skills and grow spiritually.
We sometimes think that only "positive" situations can lead to happiness. Sure, it's nice to have pleasant happenings in your life. Yet, sometimes it's those experiences that break your heart, which also open up your heart to new levels of love and appreciation.
Disappointments can lead you to take charge of your life.
Betrayals can teach you to pay attention to red flag warnings next time.
Hardship can increase your faith in God.
Loss can help you to rethink your priorities, to focus upon what really matters.
God doesn't promise us a perfect life, but he does promise to perfectly support us through life's ups and downs.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, what can I learn from this experience? How can I grow spiritually from this situation? What's the blessing within this event?
And here's a supportive scripture: And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28

Angels are watching over you
In his great love for us, God has created and sent angels to protect us. Archangel Michael is who the prophet Daniel described as one of the mightiest of all the angels. He rebukes lower energies to keep us all safe.
God has also sent guardian angels to you and your loved ones, to watch over and protect you.
Give any worries or fears to God, and let your burdens go. Be sure to listen to and follow any strong divine guidance, because that is often how God answers our prayers (including our prayers for safety). If God guides you to take action, please take that action without hesitation or delay.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, thank you for sending your holy angels to watch over me and my loved ones, and to watch over the world. Please help me with (describe any situations that you've been worrying about). I trust you! Amen.
And here's a supportive scripture: For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. Psalm 91:11

It can sure seem like stress is something that's outside of ourselves, and that stress happens to us. We must remind ourselves that stress is our reaction to a circumstance, and how we think about the situation. What's stressful to one person isn't stressful to the next.
We can reduce our stress levels by turning to God for reassurance and guidance. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and follow the inner guidance he sends you to make healthful and positive changes. When your mind is calm, you can better manage the situation, and hear the solutions.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, please help me with (describe situation), and clearly show me what action steps to take. Thank you for easing my mind, and lifting me up to faith and trust.
And here's a supportive scripture: Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
