"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
Yes, I had forgotten. And it wasn’t the only time!
I confess that when I’m anxious, I often forget about God’s hidden key – prayer! It’s not always my first response to an unsettling event. “Worrying in God’s general direction” is not the same as praying. But when we do pray with thanksgiving, Paul promises us, “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).
Prayer is the hidden key that opens the storehouse of God's grace, sufficient to meet our every need and fill us with his peace.
