I spent a couple of hours knocking doors in a neighborhood near the church the other day. In my estimation it was time well spent. I was able to meet some new people, invite them to church and have some good conversations. While I am out knocking on doors I always take time to ask everyone if they have any prayer requests. In the two hours of knocking on doors, I had 8 different people share specific prayer requests with me. They mentioned concerns about the health and well-being of friends and family, jobs and finances, and other related matters. I have been praying for those concerns the last couple of days and I invite you to lift them up to the Lord as well. It is right and proper for us to pray to the Lord and ask for wisdom and insight and strength and peace about all of those types of things in our lives. The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
The Lord desires to lessen our anxiety. He desires to give us guidance. He desires to provide for us during times of uncertainty and bring us to a place of peace. I hope that you know that you can go to the Lord in prayer. And I hope you know that you can expect Him to answer those prayers because He truly does care for you. Until next time, stay strong in the faith.
