We seem to have a difficult time simply accepting many of the blessings the God has purchased for us. For example, the reality of our lives should be that we DO NOT WORRY about ANYTHING. This seems especially difficult during these challenging and divisive times in our nation. Yet even and especially now, He calls us to rest and trust in Him. Our prayer is that God will move us to that place of quiet conscience in our thoughts and in our prayers.
This Scriptural prayer is taken from Philippians 4:6-7:
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, 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 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.
