The strongest action that you can take in any situation is to go to your knees and ask God for help. Whatever is worth worrying about is certainly worth praying about. Prayer unlocks God’s treasure chest of great ideas.

I will share with you one of my favorite prayers. It is one word: help.

“Help, help, help!”

When we pray, we must be simultaneously willing to take action that God directs in answer tour prayer.

There are four levels of prayer:

Level #1 is petition: “Father, I need…”
Level #2 is intercession: “God, help…”
Level #3 is praise and thanksgiving: “Thank you, Lord!”
Level #4 is conversation: “Good morning, Father.”

In Philippians 4:6,7 the apostle Paul counsels us, Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petitions, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus. In Colossians 4:2 he says, Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
