Why Worry?

Description

Cast off your worries by praying them away!

Be anxious for nothing, 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 comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Prayer is to worry what an antibiotic is to be nagging infection. It’s not religious, rote ceremonial prayer, but worshipful prayer. Such communion with God recognizes His all-encompassing power and authority right up front. Worry-zapping prayer is also supplication, which is passionate praying, like Jesus in Gethsemane. The prayer that overwhelms worry is also thanksgiving. As you are grateful for past blessings, you gain assurance for the future. If you’re God’s covenant child through Christ, you don’t have to drink your anxieties away, but pray them away.
