Reflection: Instead of Worrying, Pray!

We waste so much time worrying when our answer is in prayer. Prayer is the answer for everything. If you are anxious, worried, perplexed, annoyed, and can’t sleep, just pray. If you are overthinking all the possibilities and your worry scale is at its highest, just pray. You hope for the best but are still worried things may turn out to be bad, just pray.

Talk to God. Give Him all your worries. God shall give peace in the midst of storms. The circumstances may not change instantly but God is still with us. Keep praying and enjoy your time with God. Be patient. God is doing something to your life. Learn to rely on Him at all times. Learn not to allow worry to creep into your heart and cause you distress. As soon as you get worrisome thoughts, look above and talk to God.

Remember you are talking to God who can do the impossible over and above what you could ever imagine. You have the God of the universe on your side. Have Faith.

May God bless you.

Prayer: Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian

Lord and Master of my life! Take from me the spirit of sloth, faint-heartedness, lust of power, and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to Thy servant. Yea, Lord and King! Grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother, for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.
