My father-in-law* sat in his Florida home, waiting and watching for Hurricane Irma to arrive.
Every time I spoke with him he quoted Philippians 4:6-7. “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 minds.”
He found this to be true.
So can you.
*His home and neighborhood, though buffeted by winds, were virtually unharmed by the storm.
Prayer brings peace.
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).
The glory and peace that angels proclaimed (see Luke 2:13-14) when Jesus was born are realized today when we pray.
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14:13).
Let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God will guard your hearts and minds (from Philippians 4:6-7).
My biggest problem is not my situation. It’s that I worry about it.
The Lord perceives my anxious thoughts. He offers me His peace as I pray (from Psalm 139:2,23; John 14:27; Philippians 4:6-7).
