Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 (CSB)
Every month of 2020, we will feature the Love Over All theme verse on the first Sunday of the month. We love everything about Love Over All (read more about it here) and can’t wait to share these amazing verses and ways to live them out with you!
May’s theme is Love Prays.
Don’t worry. Two small words that pack a punch because how can we not worry? Everyone is worrying right now. We are worried, and we are fearful — especially right now with all the current events splashing into our newsfeeds and personal lives. Economical fears. Fear of illness. Fear for our loved ones and neighbors. Financial fears. Some people are worrying about when and where their next meal will come from, while others worry about their job security. Some of us are expectant mothers, worried for ourselves and our newborns-to-be. Fear is pervasive these days.
So how in the world can we not worry? If we don’t worry, what could we fill all that time with?
Prayer. Prayer. Pray about everything, and the space formerly occupied by worry will be replaced with peace. Grab a journal or open up a note on your phone, list all the things that are worrying you, and then pray. Give them over to the One who hears and cares. At the end of the month, take a look back to see what actually happened. We might be amazed to see what God’s done in His love for us. And we may be amazed to find ourselves less worried and more peaceful, knowing deeply that Love prays.
Pray about everything, and the space formerly occupied by worry will be replaced with peace. #loveoverall #loveprays Click To Tweet
