Prayer 2021 - July 12 - Refuse to Worry pt 4

Scripture For Today:

Job 22:27

“You will pray to Him, and He will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows.”

Refuse to Worry pt 4

We have been studying about Refusing to Worry and how we need to “Cast all of our cares over on the Lord, for He cares for us.” That’s in 1 Peter 5:7.

Yesterday, we left off with how some people, even born again believers, feel it is their obligation to worry. If they don’t worry about something, they feel they are not doing their Christian duty or something.

I seen a bumper sticker or sign or something one time that said something to the effect of, “Why pray when you can worry.”

Although it was meant to be humorous, in fact, it was stating how many believer operate!  It’s sad – but true!

Our motto should be, “Why worry when you can pray!” 

Philippians 4:6 says, “…but in EVERYTHING, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.”

Did you notice, it says “with THANKSGIVING.”  That’s not talking only during your annual turkey dinner. Amen.

Paul has shared several different facets of prayer in this one verse. Let’s look at them:

1.     Don’t worry.  It does not matter what the circumstances are, you are commanded to NOT worry about it. Don’t fret over it. Don’t concern yourself with the outcome – God has your back! Amen!

2.     Paul said “… in EVERYTHING…”  that covers how much of the circumstances you are facing? EVERYTHING!  Amen!  Everything means Every Thing. All of it.   You are supposed to “…in everything, with prayer and supplication, make your requests known to God.”  You can PRAY ABOUT IT – just don’t worry about it! 

3.     He said to PRAY WITH THANKSGIVING.  Some people never pray with thanksgiving. Ever. Their prayer requests don’t even come close to giving of thanks. They are more like moaning, groaning and complaining and “gimme gimme gimme” type of prayers. Paul said to Pray WITH THANKSGIVING about the outcome of your prayer!  Just start thanking God for the answer AS YOU PRAY about it – not when you see it. Oh, I don’t have time to go down that rabbit trail today… Glory to God!  

Let’s Pray!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
