The Bible tells us in Philippians 4:6-7 not to worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.

We all face difficult times in our lives. Whether it is illness, loss of a loved one, financial difficulty, or even trying to overcome obstacles that distract us from doing good…turning our focus to God through prayer is the best way to find peace, comfort, wisdom, and strength.

In John 16, Jesus explained to his disciples that the grief of his death would turn to joy because he was going back to the Father…and because they loved Jesus, the Father loved them. Jesus continued to explain that in this world we will have trouble. But take heart! He has overcome the world. Henderson Grove would like to join you in prayer.
