Do not be anxious about anything

From every direction and from every side

Thoughts of worry bombard our minds

We feel powerless to stop any of it

No breather is given for us to unwind


Some call it anxiousness or fear

Some call it apprehension, doubt or woe

Some call it worry, or a type of uneasiness

The challenge is finding a way to let it go


but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving

Not sometimes, but all the time

In every situation start with praying

You may have to train yourself

The discipline is worth the paying


Prayer is the cry of the heart

It gives voice to your feelings

Unguarded, unfiltered, transparent

Forms a path for healing


Petition is presenting to God a list

Detailing the crisis of your need

The solution is totally up to God

You’re just providing Him with the seed


Thanksgiving points us in a new direction

It breaks the grip of worry’s chains

Our voice finds a rhythm of hope

Our sovereign Lord Jesus reigns


Present your request to God

We are not muttering words to ourselves

Our prayers go beyond our walls

Our God is ever listening

Engaging in our every call


We understand that God is above all

Boldly, we approach the throne of Grace

As children, we come to present our request

O God, the love of talking face to face
