Question: What can I do to lift my worries?

Answer: Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.
The key is to turn to your Lord, in supplication, prayer, and remembrance.

Imam Nawawi mentions in his al-Adhkar that Ibn al-Sunni related on the authority of Qatada (Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

“Allah will assist whoever recites Ayat al-Kursi and the closing verses of Surat al-Baqara in distress.”

(Namely, the two closing verses.)

Ayat al-Kursi [Verse of the Throne] :

ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلۡحَىُّ ٱلۡقَيُّومُ‌ۚ لَا تَأۡخُذُهُ ۥ سِنَةٌ۬ وَلَا نَوۡمٌ۬‌ۚ لَّهُ ۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۗ مَن ذَا ٱلَّذِى يَشۡفَعُ عِندَهُ ۥۤ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِهِۦ‌ۚ يَعۡلَمُ مَا بَيۡنَ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُمۡ‌ۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَىۡءٍ۬ مِّنۡ عِلۡمِهِۦۤ إِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَ‌ۚ وَسِعَ كُرۡسِيُّهُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ‌ۖ وَلَا يَـُٔودُهُ ۥ حِفۡظُهُمَا‌ۚ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَلِىُّ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ

English Translation:

Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous. [al-Qur’an 2:255]

Transliteration:

Allāhu Lā ‘Ilāha ‘Illā Huwal-Ĥayyul-Qayyūm Lā Ta’khudhuhu Sinatun Wa Lā Nawm Lahu Mā Fīs-Samāwāti Wa Mā Fil-‘Arđ Man Dhāl-Ladhī Yashfa`u `Indahu ‘Illā Bi’idhnih Ya`lamu Mā Bayna ‘Aydīhim Wa Mā Khalfahum Wa Lā Yuĥīţūna Bishay’inMin `Ilmihi ‘Illā Bimā Shā’a Wasi`a Kursīyuhus-Samāwāti Wa l-‘Arđ Wa Lā Ya’ūduhu Ĥifžuhumā Wa Huwal-`Alīyul-`Ažīm.

The Two Closing Verses of Surat al-Baqara:

ءَامَنَ ٱلرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡهِ مِن رَّبِّهِۦ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ‌ۚ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيۡنَ أَحَدٍ۬ مِّن رُّسُلِهِۦ‌ۚ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَا‌ۖ غُفۡرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ

لَا يُكَلِّفُ ٱللَّهُ نَفۡسًا إِلَّا وُسۡعَهَا‌ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتۡ وَعَلَيۡہَا مَا ٱكۡتَسَبَتۡ‌ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذۡنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوۡ أَخۡطَأۡنَا‌ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحۡمِلۡ عَلَيۡنَآ إِصۡرً۬ا كَمَا حَمَلۡتَهُ ۥ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِنَا‌ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلۡنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِۦ‌ۖ وَٱعۡفُ عَنَّا وَٱغۡفِرۡ لَنَا وَٱرۡحَمۡنَآ‌ۚ أَنتَ مَوۡلَٮٰنَا فَٱنصُرۡنَا عَلَى ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡڪَـٰفِرِينَ

English Translation:

The messenger believeth in that which hath been revealed unto him from his Lord and (so do) believers. Each one believeth in Allah and His angels and His scriptures and His messengers – We make no distinction between any of His messengers – and they say: We hear, and we obey. (Grant us) Thy forgiveness, our Lord. Unto Thee is the journeying.

Allah tasketh not a soul beyond its scope. For it (is only) that which it hath earned, and against it (only) that which it hath deserved. Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget, or miss the mark! Our Lord! Lay not on us such a burden as thou didst lay on those before us! Our Lord! Impose not on us that which we have not the strength to bear! Pardon us, absolve us and have mercy on us, Thou, our Protector, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk. [al-Qur’an 2:285, 286]

Transliteration:

Āmanar-Rasūlu Bimā ‘Unzila Ilayhi Min Rabbihi Wal-Mu’uminūna Kullun ‘Āmana Billāhi Wa Malā’ikatihi Wa Kutubihi Wa Rusulihi Lā Nufarriqu Bayna ‘AĥadinMin Rusulihi Wa Qālū Sami`nā Wa ‘Aţa`nā Ghufrānaka Rabbanā Wa ‘Ilaykal-Maşīr
