PRAYER AND PETITION


Being worried and concerned is a normal human condition. If we
will take our anxieties and turn them into prayers, God will hear
our requests. If we turn our prayers into petitions, which is being
more detailed in what it is we need, we will be prepared to
recognize the answer when it comes. Our heavenly Father
already knows what we need. We are the ones that need to be
able see the answer.


Heavenly Father, so often we remain stuck in our worries and
concerns without taking time to just bring them to you. Help us
to pray about those things and to be specific in our needs. Give
us clear spiritual eyes so that we will see the answers when they
come. We thank you for this and ask it all in the name of Jesus.


Philippians 4:6


"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer
and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
(NIV)


"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known
unto God." (KJV)
