Philippians 4:6-8 says” Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
We have the scripture telling us to pray about everything. Why are we to pray about everything? Have you given it any thought?
In our human intellect we see it this way, if we are to pray about everything we would never make a choice unless we prayed. On the other hand because we don’t pray like we should we never have to wonder if we did pray about everything.
So let’s go to the scripture and see what Paul is telling us here. In Philippians 4 we see first that Paul addresses them as dear friends, He then proceeds with encouraging them, wow. Imagine what would happen if we do this daily? Paul then goes on to tell them do not fret or worry, instead of worrying, pray. Let your petitions and praise 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.
He then goes on by telling them to think on these things, he says filling your minds and mediating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious -the best , not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not thing to curse. Did you know that when we think on these things that we are praying? That’s right, see Paul is reminding us that when our minds are fixed on prayer which are these things then there is no room for worrying. Why? Because the presence of God comes over us and settle us down. WOW! How amazing is that.
Now that you see just how much important prayer is and what it does for us ” it’s time that we start praying about everything, don’t you agree?
