Why I Pray…

Daryl Face shot 3Philippians 4:6-9 NKJV

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 understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

I want to be free from anxiety.  I must learn to trust God for all my needs.  I pray for daily concerns, of course, but I also pray for others.  I want to be able to use God’s resources to help bear their burden.

I John 5:14-15 NKJV

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

I want to have that confidence, all the time.  I am praying for some difficult needs for others at this time.  I know God hears me, so I know His benevolent will is going to be done!

My prayer for you today is that you will trust God more, pray more, expect more, and be confidently thankful!  Now, go…pray with confidence!

    1. Trying to carry our burdens and work things out on our own is such a natural reaction to life’s stressors. The Lord nudged me today on the way home from work to talk to him and trust Him for the answers. What a neat time I had just talking to Jesus as I drove along the highway. Janie T.
