“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6).
Being unable to process the circumstances and negative emotions of life in healthy and appropriate ways can result in debilitating anxiety. For some it is a neurological issue requiring medical intervention, while for others it is a theological issue requiring prayerful intercession. Prayer is the grounding and centering activity for the followers of Christ. Because anxiety is a control issue, prayer is our acknowledgement of God’s control.
