Prayer Journey — Advent Peace

There are many things to be anxious about dear God. An uncertain future is before me. I have no choice but to enter it, but how will I walk into it. You tell me to not be anxious about anything, to present my fears to you in prayer, yet I struggle to verbalize my fears. The words seem to evade me. I simply ask for your peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding. Help me to present my fears to you, to release them to you, and replace them with your peace. May I rest in you and not let my fears rest in me.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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.” – Phillipians 4:6-7 (NIV)

  1. Yes, amen.
    Rom 8.26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

  2. I pray that you really are able to “rest in Him” by giving Him your cares and letting Him take care of you. We subtract from our life by worrying. We don’t add a single second to it! And worry is the opposite of faith. You know that! So, have faith! I will pray with you, “Help me to present my fears to you, to release them to you, and replace them with your peace.” Amen. PEACE, my friend!!
