Father, I'm praying that all the SONflowers and others in my circle of family and friends will be free from worry...

Help them not worry when things don't go the way they expect. Jesus said we're not to fret, not to worry, not to let our hearts be troubled or afraid. He said we're to trust in You— and also in Him. May it be so in their lives and ministry, no matter how impossible things seem. (John 14:1, 27b)

Keep them from worrying about tomorrow, for each day has enough trouble of its own. When such trouble comes, help them to cast all their anxiety on Christ because He cares for them. (Matthew 6:34; 1 Peter 5:7)

Help them not to be anxious about anything but to pray about everything with thanksgiving—for when they do, You'll give them Your peace that surpasses their understanding, and such peace guards their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6–7)

Keep their minds steadfast in trusting You, and give them Your perfect peace. May they turn to the Lord of Peace who will give them peace at all times, in every way. (Isaiah 26:3; 2 Thessalonians 3:16)

Help them leave every worry at Your feet where it belongs.

In Jesus' name, amen

(adapted from a prayer on beliefnet)

Dear Lynn,
I don't know what sermons on grace you listen to but might I suggest Joseph Prince as one to listen to. He is a wonderful grace teacher. I too came from legalism in my childhood church/education. To this day I struggle with having to earn Gods approval and just accepting His approval because He loves me. Old habits die hard I guess. I long for the day when my heart & head are on the same page fully about Gods unmerited favor towardsus as His children!
Sincerely,
Sonflowergammy

I struggle SO much with living by grace - I came out of very legalistic churches and it's so hard to not get back into the rut of living by rules and expectations and all that crap! I've decided for the month of July (at least...maybe even longer) I'm going to listen to at least one sermon about grace each day...

again, in our 'old denomination' it was practically heresy to listen to preachers who weren't from that denomination, who didn't line up with every little thing about every single piece of doctrine, so it's a battle to get past the labels and just listen to truth -

listened to a message from Tim Keller this morning.

suggestions for sermons welcomed!

Worry is something I struggle with a lot. I think I'm going to try to memorize some more scriptures and really make a study of this. emoticon

2 Corinthians 12:8-9
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. emoticon

O Lord God almighty, who has brought to us to the beginning of this day, defend us in the same by Your power; that we may not this day fall into any sin, but that all our thoughts, words, and works may be directed to the fulfillment of Your will. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.

And finally, this last of these prayers brings to mind the line from Psalm 95:7-8: “Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”

Merciful Lord, you are never weary of speaking to my poor heart. Grant me grace that, if today I hear your voice, my heart may not be hardened. Amen.

Explore all these scriptures and more as we seek first the Kingdom of God and learn through His imparted Wisdom how to truly live Worry Free Lives! emoticon emoticon
"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things,

"When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say,

Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof.
