Don’t Worry, Pray: Phil 4:6

Philippians chapter 4

key text: Phil 4:6 – “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God.”

  • I worry a lot, but here is a command not to.
  • The point is that God will take care
  • Or maybe that our worries are to be given over to God. It doesn’t mean God will give us whatever we ask for, but that God will ease our worry in a big way.
  • Makes a point that we may worry about a few things, but we are to go to God “in everything.”
  • This reminds us to pray in all circumstances and about everything we experience – not just the worries or negative things – everything.
  • Again, this will ease worry through having a lifestyle of prayer.
  • Note that the posture of prayer is thanksgiving. Its hard to worry when you are thankful.
