Applying God's Truth to Everyday Life.

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

Developing an Attitude of Prayer in the Midst of Worry

When you’re under pressure, it’s always best to pray about it instead of talk about it. Prayer is the blueprint for a successful life. During His time on earth, Jesus prayed. He entrusted everything to God through prayer—even His reputation and life. We can do the same. We don’t have to explain all of our problems to Him; we can just give them to Him and ask Him to take care of everything.

Be careful not to complicate prayer. I think a lot of times people wait until they can have time alone with God or go to church before they really pray, without realizing that they can pray at any time. Have confidence in simple, believing prayer and remember Paul’s instructions in Philippians 4:6. Instead of worrying, simply pray and ask God for help when you find yourself in a difficult situation.

The Bible tells us that God is faithful—that’s one of His characteristics. He can be counted on to come through for us when we pray to Him for help, so we should trust Him totally and completely. When we do, we’ll be ready for anything that may come our way.
