Prayer Removes The Need To Worry

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Romans 8:26
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
Psalm 34:17
17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Earlier this week I received a phone call that was a little scary, to say the least.  My pharmacy called to tell me, that when they called to verify my insurance, they were told that it had been canceled.
The frustrating thing about all of this is that my insurance company had closed for the day, so I was not able to get answers until the next day.

My husband was listening to the conversation, and he was a bit thrown off by this news also.  I must admit I started to feel a bit anxious inside and stressed.  You see I have been dealing with some serious health issues.  So, taking the medication that the pharmacy was calling about was critical.  My insurance was also important, due to how expensive the medication is.

As I left the room thinking I would not be able to get answers from my insurance company until the next day, the Holy Spirit whispered to me, ” Don’t be afraid”.

It was just the reminder that I needed, that no matter what, God was going to work it out and it was going to be ok.

I did the only thing that I knew to do, and that was to pray,

The next morning, bright and early, I made a phone call to my insurance company.    The person that I spoke with told me that our insurance was through a different company now, and she gave me the phone number to contact them.  When I called them, they confirmed that I was still covered and that my prescription would be taken care of.

I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I was to get this news!   I must say that I learned some valuable lessons that day.

  1. When you get bad or disappointing news, pray immediately.  Don’t allow Satan a single second to get inside your head and create doubts.
  2. Investigate and confirm whether or not the news is true or not.
  3. Don’t immediately think the worse.
  4. Trust God to work things out for your good.
  5. Be patient and give God time to work. It may take longer than you initially anticipate.
  6. When you pray, ask God for His favor to be over you.

So, no matter how difficult the situation or circumstance that you find yourself in, remember God has got you. Pray without ceasing, because prayer will remove your need for worry.
