This is good Truth Network encouraging prayer, God offers an open invitation for his people to talk with him at any time about anything encouraging prayer Dr. James Banks, author of the best-selling and many other books on prayer provides weekly biblical insight help you learn to mom and now my am really excited about today's topic is how to pray when facing anxiety and actually James is our thing about that is there a time I'm not fixing, I hope I'm making progress on that. But I'm open your topics can help me think about the topic that we need all about people in Ukraine what is going on.

What should we do what can we not do and the problems of the in inflation, rising gas prices. These are anxious and even that there were a lot of people struggling with anxiety. We need to talk about this.

Pray that the conversation have a college student night about just not sleeping well.

My daughter love sister having dessert. He said no sugar after 08 or 9 o'clock at night I had bad dreams and we went on to say what you do and how how do you as well. Like you, saying, when do I not have it. I think one of the main things that Jesus done for me in my heart and life over time is to to replace that anxiousness with P I'm so thankful you're saying I can't help but remember the hundred 19 Psalm or some line that says I remembered your name in the Nido Lord this I have because I kept my law and I'm like wow and I really worked on trying to remember when I started having a bad dream to remember his name and at times I have been able to do it.

It's really it's it's helpful. It is helpful and I think a great way to start reading the names of God whatever comes to mind. Counselor Almighty God really does a great like it was saying you anxiousness is part of our condition is natural for us to have that but what were called to is that that place where the spirit of God is increasingly moving into those anxious moment helping us. Even Jesus faced anxiety.

What did he do when he faced anxiety. Lord you are willing, let this cup pass from me regarding but not my will but yours went to the immediately another great way to prove and a lot of people have that number on the Lord is my shepherd, I love the cancellation. I actually prayed everyday third person. Lord you are our shepherd like to pray for other people's income praying for me. Yeah that's beautiful you think vehemently makes me lie down in green pass you the quiet water moment with each one and imagine you're doing just that. He restores my soul he guides me in paths of righteousness for his namesake in the right path shortly where to go what to do in this moment and I love between two thumbs up. Talk about the place where he says even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will first place.

Aggressive God, the second person for you are with this is where transpersonal in the valley And just to pray to even the first four verses of the 23rd Psalm make credible different lately since you told me but surely goodness and mercy will follow the word follow you pointed out was that word pursue and in in the Hebrew it actually is like their dog and you write and I know that I love that I've been thinking about ever since you gave to me, as I pray that that I feel goodness and mercy, literally dogging my steps, which is what you need when you feel anxious.

Yeah it's so important time in my life probably was a little boy I was caught in the cave. Briefly, just briefly, but it was long enough that I got blindness about it later and was a matter where I had to squeeze rock from the skin below.

So you know I got. It was dark place. Place on no later I went to a time where I was, was just imagine it when I go to bed. It was really an attack there would be times where I feel that darkness closing in.

You will got to the point where I had to say Lord here is you know what's going on. I know this is the way you want me to feel this so please take this love me and the more I gave it to him the more he yeah and just praying his work thinking about what Peter says about and cast your cares on him because he cares for you or what Paul calls the God of all comfort. You know we have to run to him because Jesus really is RP and that that the profound piece of supernatural peace. The gift that we need so much James could you lead us in a prayer like that right now except since we really are all feeling that absolutely come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. You are our rescue. RRP's we thank you that we can come to you with anything that we are facing that you won't pass this away. So Lord we resting right now and we ask that you help us just because will love you back and you love you hear more from Pastor James by visiting the website James or by visiting church in Durham, North Carolina.
