When you’re under pressure, it’s always best to pray about it instead of talk about it. Prayer is the blueprint for a successful life.
During His time on earth, Jesus prayed. He entrusted everything to God through prayer, even His reputation and life. We can do the same. We don’t have to explain all the problems to Him; we can just give them to Him and ask Him to take care of everything.
You don’t have to complicate prayer. I think a lot of times people wait until they get to their quiet time or church before they really pray, without realizing that they can pray at any time. Just have confidence in simple, believing prayer. Look at Paul’s instructions in Philippians 4:6-7. Instead of worrying, simply pray and ask God for help when you find yourself in a difficult situation.
The Bible tells us that God is faithful, that’s one of His major characteristics. He can be counted on to come through for us when we pray to Him for help, so we should trust Him totally and completely. When we do, we’ll be ready for anything that may come our way.
Prayer Starter: God, I don’t want to live my life worrying. Instead, I decide today to get in the habit of praying to You at all times.
Memory Verse: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; (Philippians 4:6 NKJV)
