Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. Psalms 125:1 NIV


A friend of mine has a high sense of responsibility and he likes to do things well. Some would say he is a perfectionist or a ‘control freak’ even. The down side of his gifting is that he is prone to anxiety and he worries a lot and he can get depressed. He’s learned that the only antidote to his anxiety is to TRUST God. He does what he can do and trusts God to do the rest.

It made me think about our relationship. When we run into difficulties I could be less anxious, I could focus on doing or perhaps changing the things I need to do or change and trust God for the rest.

How about you?

What would it look like if your trusted God more?

Prayer as a couple

Dear Lord, thank you that you are faithful and trustworthy. Sometimes I get overly anxious and I am sorry. Help us to trust you more and may our trust manifest itself in peace and be obvious to those around. For we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer for others

Dear Lord, we thank you for …. and …. We pray that they can increasingly trust in you and your unfailing love and that this will result in less anxiety and more peace. For we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
