Prayers For An Anxious Heart #AnythingGoesonSunday
As part of my August celebration, I’m reviving #AnythingGoesOnSunday – an invitation for you to add yours link for your Sunday posts to the linky below. No theme, no prompt – anything goes! However, I’d appreciate if you left a comment and visited at least two of the blogs linked before yours!
Today, I’m doing a short book review. Prayers for an Anxious Heart is a compilation of Christian prayers by the staff of Barbour Publishing and includes dozens of practical and encouraging prayers inspired by the Biblical verse found in Philippians 4:6-7 – 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 your minds ……
I found the prayers were too long and the book could have done with a contents page, however, I’m sure someone somewhere will find solace through it! [rating=2]
Talking about an anxious heart, I’m curious to know what your answer would be to this question.
Do you find yourself getting more anxious as you get older? Or are you more calm and relaxed with age?
In my case, I find myself getting calmer about the bigger stuff – the larger life questions about the future etc. It’s the little stuff that makes me tense and anxious at times. I think I need to work a lot more on myself in this area.
If you gathered up all the fearful thoughts that exist in the mind of the average person, looked at them objectively, and tried to decide just how much good they provided that person, you would see that not some but all fearful thoughts are useless. They do no good. Zero. They interfere with dreams, hopes, desire and progress. – Richard Carlson
