Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Have you ever witnessed a child who is asking for something or lodging a complaint and sobbing uncontrollably? It’s difficult to hear what they’re saying and if you can’t hear them you can’t understand and help them. God always has a plan and isn’t really moved by our anxieties or threats. He asks that we try and focus on his promises and points us towards his word which assures us and brings us closer to the God of possibilities. Asking with supplication is our opportunity to show God our humility. Thanksgiving in the face of anxiety, is an exhibition of faith.
To you O Lord be all the glory for your divine wisdom. Thank you for the gift of friendship and meaningful relationships. I exalt you above my anxieties. In Jesus, name I pray.
