Don’t worry, pray

Philippians 4:6  do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Central to Paul’s thoughts on prayer given to the Philippians is the aspect of thanksgiving and praise.  Want to be free from your burdens?  Rejoice in the Lord!  Are you bringing your requests to God?  Do it while giving thanks for what He’s already done!

Pray knowing that God hears the cries of His people.  Bring all things to Him, cast them all before Him.  Know that God is faithful and just.  Trust, knowing what He has already been faithful in, that He will continue to provide your every need and hear the desires of your heart.  Give Him thanks!

Echo the thoughts of Paul:  Rejoice in the Lord always!  This attitude in prayer will lead to peace, no matter what burdens you carry.  The Lord is good and He will lighten your load.

———-  What’s your biggest worry?  Cast it before God and have the faith to let it go.
