Worry vs. Prayer, April 28, 2016 Daily Reflection

20160427_212401“Don’t worry about anything instead pray about everything”

Worrying causes; tension, stress, health problems, depression, a negative attitude, insecurity, and anxiety.

Instead pray.

Prayer causes;

Comfort – you feel as though someone is listening

Relief – you speak the words out loud and many times it releases the tension, sometimes it helps to put the problem in perspective; many times when you keep it to yourself it seems worse than it really is.

Hope – if you pray it is because you still have a glimmer of hope that God can help you in your time of need.

Security – praying gives one a feeling of no longer handling the problem alone.

This is what the Bible says about worry….

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

– Matthew 6:25-27

Instead Pray….
