“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.” Philippians 4:6-7, NIV
Do you feel like the pile of tasks to prepare for the first day of school just continues to pile up? Are you already feeling overwhelmed?
If so, God wants to remind you today that prayer is the key to unlocking peace in your life. He wants you to turn your anxious thoughts into prayers. He wants you to surrender control over every situation to Him. He wants to give you peace that surpasses all understanding. He wants to guard your anxious heart and mind.
Dear Father, we give You our anxious hearts today and ask that You give us peace that will guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Amen.
