Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
When we pray, we invite God to enter into our heart and guide us through each day. Prayer is our way of connecting with God, of talking directly to Him.
Bur don’t ever forget, that we don’t have to pray to let God know how we are feeling or what we need, because God knows what’s in our heart. God made each of us with His own hands, so He already knows everything about us, He knows our every thought and our every feeling, even before we know them ourselves!
When we are struggling or facing difficult times, that’s when we often plead with God to listen to our prayers. Why do we plead with God? Is it because we think He isn’t listening to us, or doesn’t care about it? Far from it, as I said earlier, God knows what we are needing before we even ask Him, so He’s not forgotten us. God cares about us more than anyone else, so He would not desert us in our hour of need.
God knows everything about you – He knows your every fear and your every need.
