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. Philippians 4:6, 7 KJV
I pretty much already know this one, but I will work with the kiddos on it this week.
The key word for me in this verse is thanksgiving. So many times we just go to God with our problems and concerns. The Bible tells we are to go to Him in prayer and supplication WITH THANKSGIVING. Are we thankful for the bumps in the road that God allows us to go through? Do we thank Him for the trials? That can be difficult at times cant it? But God has something for us to learn through each trial we bear. May we ask him today to teach us and may we be thankful in prayer.
