Thoughts 18th July

Phil Ch 4 verses 6-7             Do not be anxious about anything. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. And the peace of God……will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Here is another prayer linked thought! It’s just that this seems to something the Holy Spirit keeps reminding us to do. Pray with faith and gratitude and live in peace not in anxiety and fear.

Lockdown is being lifted (in some minds too quickly)! Will the R number increase? What about people’s jobs? What about the economy? What about people’s health? What about abused children being at home for so long?  So many questions? No concrete answers! This country and this world need your/our/my prayers day in and day out.

As we pray though, instead of being filled with fear and anxiety, ask that the Holy Spirit will fill us with his peace.

Holy Spirit help us to pray as you promised. Lead us in prayer. Fill us with your whole life peace.

Amen.
