Practical Living through Biblical Principles

Pray and Give Thanks

By Yolanda K. Edwards

Phillipians 4:6 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (NIV)

The New Living Translation reads “Don’t worry about anything, instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done.”

Something to think about: Did you know that anxiety and worry can make you physically ill and cause you to be fatigued?

Why waste your time worrying when God has already provided your need and answered your prayers. All we have to do is pray.  God said that we can have whatever we ask in His name as long as it’s in His will for us.  Though you may have already prayed, maybe you don’t see the response yet.  First, remember that all things happen in God’s time, not ours, so if you don’t see the response yet, be patient and confident that the answer is on the way and it will arrive at the perfect time. Second, stop and see if He has already answered your prayer, just not in the manner in which you were expecting.

In any case, remember to pray about everything, cast your cares upon God, and let him work it out.  You’ll find that you will live a much healthier, stress free life.
