“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” Philippians 4:6-7, NKJV.
Sometimes, I find myself pacing back and forth in my mind about something I already prayed to God about.
At least I thought I did.
If we are worrying, have an unrest about something, or just simply thinking about something too much, we have to ask ourselves have we really prayed about it to God? Have we just thought about praying, but not prayed? Have we only did a drive-by prayer on our way to work, or church, or is it something we really took it before the Father? Have we took it before Abba-our Papa? Have we put aside other things to inquire of God about, and said I’m going to on purpose take time to specifically pray about this. Take time to give to God and truly pray regarding that one thing.
We should stand in prayer free, transparent and humble before Him. He will stand before you also, revealing His will for your life, with the answers, the reassurance, the direction, the peace that you need that will keep your heart and mind by Christ Jesus.
Lastly, while you truly pray about it, always thank Him. You will find you can’t thank God and worry at the same time. Give time to thanking Him for Who He is, what He has done and you are reminded of what He can do! Thank Him, considering that He’s good and call it already done.
Prayer: Father, Papa, You are good and I thank You for always hearing me when I pray. I thank You for all You have done and You always come through for me. With thanksgiving, I take the time to pause and truly humbly pray about this situation or this person in my life. Here I am and I listen to You now. I already call it done! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
