Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
Your Secret Weapon
The Christian’s secret weapon is prayer. Prayer can be directed across the country and arrive in an instant. Prayers can be time delayed, so they go off at just the right moment. Prayer brings the glory of heaven into the mundane of life.
When you pray, you step into heaven and bring your request to the King of Glory. God has promised to hear your request and answer.
Unfortunately, we fail to use this secret weapon God has given us. Instead, we choose to worry, fret, and be anxious about what were are going through. We carry the weight of the world on our shoulders instead of allowing the Lord Jesus to carry it for us.
Prayer Demonstrates Faith
Prayer is the demonstration of your faith. Until you pray, your faith is just talk. Prayer brings your faith to the forefront and invites God into the difficulties you face.
This promise commands you to pray about everything. It doesn’t mean you walk around with your head bowed and eyes closed. It means to bring God into the details of your life. It might mean a short prayer spoken under your breath as you enter a meeting or a silent prayer when you find yourself in the middle of a conflict.
Prayer is the Cure
Prayer is the cure for worry. When you pray about everything, you won’t worry about anything. When you pray about nothing, you worry about everything.
When you pray about everything, you won’t worry about anything. When you pray about nothing, you worry about everything.
If you want to overcome worry and anxiety, then pray about everything. Let whatever you are worried or anxious about become the prayer list you bring to the Father. Let every anxious thought be a call to prayer.
As you continually bring every worry to the Lord, you will soon find your faith growing and your worry disappear.
Look at that promise again.
Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. – Philippians 4:6
Make this confession.
I will not worry; I will pray.
Nothing is too small to pray about.
When I become anxious or fretful, I will pray.
I will pray about everything and worry about nothing.
In Jesus name,
God gives you the solution to your fear and worry. As you learn to bring everything to the Lord, you will find your worry and fear fade. You will have new boldness and confidence that God is taking care of you.
This week we are celebrating our fourth anniversary of the ministry. During these past four years, the ministry has touched lives in 199 countries. We have trained thousands of couples to pray for each other, and over 200,000 people have downloaded an episode of The Daily Promise. Thank you for support and prayer for this ministry. I am looking forward to all God has for us in the future.
