Pray More, Worry Less

img_7062
Philippians 4:6-7
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.

Many times we are distracted by the vigorous wind/storm around us and just like Peter we take our eyes off the target and little by little we begin to drown.
Worrying is a major plan of the enemy that keeps us busily dwelling on the past. Who progresses in life whiles still leaving in the past anyway?

Per what you carry inside you, it will be deadly for the kingdom of darkness if you are allowed to freely function.
he (Satan) therefore tries to bring certain unfavorable situations our way to distract us from achieving the purpose for which we are on this earth, and taking our minds off prayer(the powerful weapon of mass destruction).

Know that without peace nothing extraordinary happens and so peace is needed to develop the creative ideas hidden deep within you.
Thanks be to God that we are not ignorant of his devices lest Satan should get an advantage of us. (2 Corinthians 2:11)
Worry not! For we have a High Priest who is able to intercede on our behalf, therefore keep on praying without giving up.

I am yet to see anyone who has a life transforming testimony out of worrying but i personally am a proof that praying more and giving no room for worrying transforms. Do not give up yet!
In times of sickness pray!
In times of good health pray!
In times of sorrow pray!
When nothing is happening pray!
When something is happening pray!
You know why? Because it is the only key to unlock the gates of this earth for heaven to intervene.

If we channel the number of hours we spend brooding over all the negatives in our lives to praying, i tell you this truth that we will be unstoppable!

When we fix our eyes on Jesus even when the things happening around us are so scary capable of causing fear and panic leading to our downfall, He works in us, deals with our hearts and minds and make us operate with His mind therefore all we see is an elephant verses an ant battle😅 for the name Jesus has been exalted above every other name!!
He gives us rest even in warlike situations and people marvel at our composure because His peace transcends all understanding.
Glory to God!

Prayer
Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for this day and everything in it, i ask that you will forgive all errors i have committed against you and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Father help me always stay calm even in rough and tough situations. Take charge of my mind and heart and direct it towards you. Help me stay focused on you as i rid myself off all distractions in Jesus mighty name have I prayed with thanksgiving, Amen.
