Puny Prayer vs. W.I. Worry

Philippians 4:6-7

Trials and difficulties come to every life, even Christ-follwers.  When they do come, we can respond in one of two ways:  1) worry, or 2) pray.  Let's see which one is the better option!

>  No worries mate - v. 6a

       Be anxious for nothing.  Anxious = to be pulled apart. 
       We are commanded not to worry - whatever is not done in faith is sin! 

>  Hit your knees - v. 6b 

       Prayer -  In everything by prayer
      Supplication - Genesis 22:8, 13-14 - heartfelt, specific request for our needs. 
      Thanksgiving - an important part of prayer.  God is blessed by our gratitude. 

> Peace to you - v. 7

       Prayer = peach of God
       Peace in the midst of trying circumstances. 
       The worry option will never give us peace.
