Fight anxiety with faith
"Thoughts tend to reproduce themselves in kind. If a person constantly sends out apprehensive anxiety thoughts, he actually tends to produce accident and misfortune. Conversely, if you surround your loved ones and yourself with faith thoughts, protection thoughts, love thoughts—all of which may be called God thoughts—then you encompass your loved ones and yourself with the most powerful protection in the world.
"Anxiety is likely to produce what you are anxious about; whereas intelligent faith produces protective commonsense results. Anxiety is like a magnet. It draws unhappy results to itself. But so also is faith. Indeed faith is a much more powerful magnet, one that draws incredible blessings."
-- Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
