Pray or Bray, You Decide?

Prayer is the voice of faith, trusting that God knows and cares.

"6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Phil 4:6-7, NKJV).

Prayer is like conversing to God just as we converse daily to our closest friend sitting in a park nearby our home, which relaxes our nerves and brings joy to our heart.

When ever we stop praying to God about the problems we face, these very problems becomes a huge mountain for us to carry. When we pray to God and unload our burdens to Him, He carries our problems from that point of time. Learn to unload your burdens daily by having a regular prayer time and appointment with God. People who do not pray regularly are the most anxious, stressed out, worried, fuming and fretting Christians. They blame God and others for all the problems they face each day. But those who have unloaded their burdens to Jesus daily are those who are peaceful, serene, tranquil and calmn in their day to day life. They enjoy their life everyday adundantly.

What type are you, you decide today? To be peaceful through prayer or be anxious without it, is a choice you make ever day of your life.

To the stressed out Christians who want to solve all their problems themselves in their day to day life, end up as a huge disappointment to themselves, their family and friends. Jesus is inviting you for a heavenly party of joy, peace and rest saying, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]" (Mat 11:28, AMP). Tell to Jesus daily about your problems and he will tell you how you should be joyful and happy all the time, because He is going to work out and solve all your problems day by day without even you realising it because of His peace that surpasses all understanding. Jesus is the only person who has agreed to take all the garbage of problems that you bring Him and replace it with the glorious heavenly solutions of rest, refreshment and enjoyment. Nobody in heaven or earth ever gives it this way. I bet, you can't get it in the disney world without paying for it.

"He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day." - John Bunyan
