In Philippians 4:6-7 Your Word says,
“Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication,
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.”
We are in one of those times of anxiety;
Lord, help us to seek You;
Help us to come before You
With thanksgiving in the midst of the uncertainty.
The passage continues (in verse 8),
“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.”
Help us to dwell only on those things
That are virtuous and praiseworthy.
We rest in You; we trust in You,
And we live in Your peace that passes understanding.
We rely on You to guard our hearts and minds
Through these times of unease and worry.
Thank you for Jesus and for hearing our prayers.
