Day 4: Worry

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Philippians 4:6-7 (MSG)


Father, today I surrender my worries and every care I have to You. I am going to turn my list of worries into my prayer list. When my mind feels out of control, I pray You’ll help me renew my mind with Your Word. I command anything not of You to leave in Jesus’ mighty name. I proclaim I have a sound and healthy mind. I lay down all worries, all my physical and mental anxiety, and any attempt at trying to control it all. I surrender it all to You. (Tell Him the things you are laying down right now.) I need You and Your peace that transcends my human understanding. Even if things are unstable around me, I pray Your peace will be evident in my heart and life. As I step into praising You, dissolve my worry and fear. I place my concerns before You and make You the center of my thoughts. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
