“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
Don’t be anxious
In difficulties it is hard to not be anxious. What should I do? Am I right? What is going to be the result? Is God asking us to not be worried in every situation? God is not saying we shouldn’t worry here. He is saying that in every situation, we should share what we are thinking with God through prayer.
When we pray, it should not be a one-way prayer where we just make requests. Even in the most difficult situations, God is giving us small nuggets of blessings. Let’s give thanks to God for those “small” blessings when we pray to Him!
