Tuesday Prayer Day: Are you Anxious?
I have to be honest. I battle anxiety. It rears its ugly head most often when I feel a lack of being in control. The more I wrestle for control–the more anxious I become. But what if I was courageous enough to release control to God?
God’s Recipe to Cure Anxiety: 3 Steps
“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.” Philippians 4:6-7, NLT
The Results of Doing this
Result 1:You will experience the peace of God–even if it makes no logical sense
Result 2: This peace will protect your heart
Result 3: This peace will protect your mind
When our hearts and minds are protected by His peace, we won’t wrestle with anxieties. His peace will hold us in perfect trust and calm even when living with circumstances beyond our control.
Let Us Pray for One Another
Dear God, There are so many circumstances that are out of our control. We confess that there are times when we replace prayer with worry and fretting which leads to anxiety that attacks our hearts and minds. Help us recognize when we do this and take each and every need, fear, and desire to you–our loving Father. Give us the courage to be bold and tell you how we would like for things to be, all the while trusting You to make the best decisions for us–leading to your perfect and divine peace that will guard our hearts and our minds. In Jesus’ precious and powerful name~ Amen
