We seem to have a difficult time simply accepting many of the blessings that God has purchased for us. For example, the reality of our lives should be that we do not worry about anything. Instead, He calls us to rest and trust in Him. Our prayer for this week is that God will move us to that place of quiet confidence in our thoughts and in our prayers.
This week's Scriptural Prayer is taken from Philippians 4:6-7...
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
ADULT PRAYER: Dear God, instead of worrying, help me to pray. May petitions and praises shape my worries into prayers. Then I can be confident that before I know it, a sense of Your wholeness and peace will take over my thoughts and guard my heart. I rest and trust in You! In Jesus' name, amen.
PRAYER FOR CHILDREN: Dear God, You tell me in Your word that I never have to worry about anything. I can talk to You about every little thing and big thing. I can know that You hear me. You comfort me. You answer me. I can always trust You! I love You and I thank You. In Jesus' name, amen.
