God did something really awesome today!  He reached out to someone who was struggling during our prayer time!   

A dear friend from church was struggling with anxieties caused by her husband’s job situation.  His previous job was terminated – a result of current economic troubles, and the job they’d prayed for did not work out.  Emotional with worry, she shared her concerns with our small prayer group.  While the others took their turns praying, I silently prayed to God asking if there were scriptures from the Bible that we could offer our sister-friend.  Immediately He put a verese in my head.  While searching for that verse in my Bible, He led me to a second verse! 

I’d like to share the verses with you.  Maybe they’re words that God wants you to hear, too.  Or maybe you know someone who’s struggling with financial concerns and uncertainty.  If so, please share this message with them, as well. 

Words spoken by Jesus in Matthew 6:32-34:

Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if  you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.  So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries.  Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Phillipians 4:6-7        Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand.  His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Dear God, Thank You for speaking to us through Your Living Word today!  It’s always amazing when You respond to our prayers!  I hope and pray that those who need to hear Your words of truth will be encouraged.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.
