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 minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

As a follower of Christ, one of the most important parts of life is prayer. Do you realize there is not just one way to pray? God wants you to learn to communicate with Him and pour your heart out to Him. Regardless of your circumstances, good or bad, communicate with God. 

No matter what situation you find yourself in, you need to begin to talk to your Heavenly Father and invite Him to make a difference in your life. 

Ephesians 6:18 says, And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

In other words, there is nothing off limits in your prayer life. When you bring your requests to God, no matter how big or small they might be, He will hear you. He wants you to talk to Him. He longs for you to spend time with Him, and prayer is one of the best ways you can do that. 

Whatever you are facing today (especially during these uncertain times), I invite you to pray this prayer:

“Lord, would you invade this situation? Would you take over my circumstances and my life? I’m going to lay this situation, this relationship, this uncertainty, on the altar. I’m going to back away, and I’m going to thank you that you are in charge of it, and I’m going to let you take care of it.”

    I am a teacher with a wonderful group of precious children that have so many diverse needs-and diverse behaviors (I have a blended class IEP children, behavioral, and typically developing children)-prayer is a constant -I often feel weak-or doubting-wanting to do my absolute best to meet their needs-by the end of many a day-I am worn-without prayer with an amazing father-God-not sure how I would face some of the challenges.
