Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6,7
It’s a stressful time in our household, our children getting ready to sit A & AS Level exams and contemplating their future, work & ministry pressures are stretching us. In times such as this, it’s a real comfort to hand the situation over to God and receive His ‘peace that transcends all understanding’. But it also challenges us about the times of calm when we perhaps forget to hand every situation (good and bad) over to Him. It’s good to remember that God is interested in the small details as well as the big details of our lives.
How about you? Are you in a season of calm or a season of pressure? Either way are you taking everything to God?
Prayer (as a couple)
Father thank you for the opportunity to pray together, for the closeness that brings and the comfort of handing everything over to you. Amen
Prayer (for others)
Lord we pray for _____ and ____ that they will discover the gift of praying together and the amazing power that brings to their marriage. Amen
Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. Psalm 37:5
