Find freedom from anxiety. Approach the throne of Grace.

“The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but 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 in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4.5b-7)

Approach God. He’s in your presence, right now.

“…do not be anxious about anything…”  ANY-thing.

The littlest thoughts easily become seeds of anxiety. God wants these.

EVERY. little. thing.

What to ~ buy at the store. fix for supper. say to that person. wear to that event.
How to ~ pay that bill off. answer the invitation. solve that problem. fix something. clean something. have a talk with someone.
When to ~ begin or end something. make that contact. act on something
Where to ~  get good counsel. buy that item. ask that question.

“…let your requests be made known to God.”

Practice sharpens our hearing. We learn His voice. The voice we pursue when BIG problems scream.

“…with thanksgiving”

Thank you, God, that You delight to hear our every-thing prayers. 
Thank you for answers to encourage our hearing. To lead our living.

God’s armor of peace. Around our heart. Over our mind.

Peace beyond our understanding.
Whatever comes, God’s peace prevails.

Be a conqueror. With thanksgiving to the One who loves you, in every-thing, pray.
