When Worried…Pray

Apr 24, 2016 1752

I’ve found in life there are a lot of things that can cause worry. I can find myself worrying about problems I am facing. I can stress about situations I’m in. I can freak out that something bad may happen.

And it is easy to freak out. It is easy to worry. It is easy to stress about life. But, as easy as it is, I don’t like feeling anxious; I doubt anyone does. We all want to be free from worry. We all want peace.

And we can have peace. Philippians 4:6-7 tells us how.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Through prayer we can have peace. We don’t have to be anxious. In prayer we can tell God about whatever situation or problem we are facing and we can give it to him. We can have peace knowing that it is in his hands. We can have peace knowing that he has everything under control.

So whenever you are worried…Pray. In fact, pray before you become worried. As it says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17,

Pray continually.
