Do not worry about anything, 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 your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7 (NRSV)
We were miles from the nearest town. With the low-fuel warning light on in my car and two mountains to cross, I prayed, “Our cell phones don’t work out here, and we’re two young women who don’t want to walk these roads in the dark. Please help us arrive safely.”...
Through prayer God takes my worry and offers me peace.
TO PRAY WITH THANKSGIVING
Respond by posting a prayer.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
