Memorize and Reflect

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)


Prayer Direction

Take time to rejoice in God’s grace, presence and power in your life and our world. Pray for the power to be gentle with others in growing measure. Ask God to help you see the presence and power of His Holy Spirit around you. Lift up prayers of thanks for what God has been doing in your life, through your life, and in our world


“Live It!” Challenge

Gratitude: Take time to write down three things you are thankful for, every day, for a week. Read this list out loud when you feel a lack of peace in your life.
