  • scared of flying. pray for me

    I am flying Friday night by myself for the first time in 4 years and when i was alone last time I had a panic attack. Please pray for me that I can make it there without having one. I have Xanax with me but am still freaked out!! Thanks!

    I'll be praying for you! You'll be fine. I was always ok to fly until 9/11. I flew for the first time since the attacks in April. I was very,very nervous, but all went well. I know exactly how you feel! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow night!
    If you have time to worry, you have time to pray!

        You are in very good company in being afraid of flying. I do fly, although I do not care for it. I do better once I have flown a couple of times, then I get more used to it.

        It turned out part of my fear was that I was getting physically sick with headaches and nausea. Dramamine has helped me, in that it calms me down and I do not get nauseous.

        Also, it helps to slow your breathing down to a nice, calming pace. Focus on that. Also focus on the stewardesses and stewards. They are usually happy and do not let any air pocket jumps bother them. These folks fly many miles every day, so that is comforting.

        For me, my spirituality helps in that I imagine Jesus holding the plane in the air. This provides me great comfort and calms me immediately.

        Yes, I will pray for you that you do fine on the flight and that your flight is safe. You will do fine with so many people praying for you.
