Lent Day 8 & 9 – Giving Thanks

Where do you turn in times of trouble? I missed a day here not because I wasn’t thankful but because I was focused of asking for prayers.

My life verse has almost always been Philippians 4:6:

Don’t worry about anything but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. 

When I am praying I am trusting God that He is in control of everything. In times of trouble I pray, and I ask for my friends to pray with me and for me. I can feel the prayers of my friends and family and God gives me an amazing peace that I cannot describe. There is power in talking to God about what troubles me. Even when praying doesn’t change the situation or circumstance it changes my perspective from worrying to trusting in God. I’m thankful for my friends and I am especially thankful for my friends who are willing to pray with me.
