The Apostle Paul was stuck in a Roman dungeon facing the possibility of having his head chopped off. Instead of worrying about dying, he prayed.
And look at his word found in Philippians 4:6-7. Remember, a man sitting in a damp, dark, depressing dungeon penned these words: ""Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worry into prayers. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down."
When you face a challenging circumstance you have two choices. You can lose heart and let worrisome thoughts control your mind; or you can pray about it
The gift of prayer is wonderful. Even more wonderful is having a loving God who not only listens but also answers our prayers.
