Turning our Worries into Prayer

Can you imagine living in today’s times and not knowing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?  I know I can’t.  Many go to church Sunday after Sunday and are never preached to about the book of Revelation, end times or what it means to be born again and have that personal relationship Jesus Christ.  What a difference it makes when you know what the future holds for believers.  We know that God defeats Satan, and we get to spend eternity with God in the most beautiful place most can’t even imagine.  Anxiety, worry, discouragement, despair and fear, weighs on the shoulders of many that don’t have faith in Jesus Christ.  People are lonely and scared and don’t understanding what is happening in the world.

If we have faith in Jesus, we don’t need to be uncertain or worry about what the future holds because we know exactly what the outcome is going to be and that is what gets us through these times of uncertainty.

John 10:10

The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy.  I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.

The thief takes life, but Jesus gives life.

Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious in anything but in every situation by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.


Matthew gives us seven reasons not to worry!

  • The same God who created life in you can be trusted with the details for your life.
  • Worrying about the future can make us so focused on work that we fail to attend to what is most important.
  • Worrying is more harmful than helpful.
  • God does not ignore those who depend on him.
  • Worrying shows a lack of faith in and understanding of God.
  • Worrying keeps us from what God wants us to pursue.
  • Living one day at a time keeps us from being consumed with worry.


Everyone has worries, but Paul’s advice is to turn our worries into prayers.  When you start to worry, stop and pray!


Many blessings to you all,
