The Lord is at Hand
"The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." I was thinking about this passage today from Philippians 4:5-6. It captured my thoughts, and I was trying to phrase it in a different way and apply it to our situation with Ian: The Lord is all over this one. He's not far off. He's very much involved. He's on top of it. It hasn't escaped his notice a bit. Because he's at hand, I'm to obey the command, "do not be anxious about anything." "In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving," I need to let my requests be made known to God.
This is the same thing Ian needs to do.
Jesus, help Ian to continue to be in faith. Heal him from head to toe. Bring him back to us. Thank you that we can come to you with our requests. Thank you that you rule over our circumstances. Help us to continue to lay our requests at your feet. Help us not to be anxious about anything.
Thank you for joining us in prayer.
