Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Prayer gives God a chance to answer and be glorified. Prayer gives your mind a chance to be steadfastly on God. And prayer gives your mind a chance to give over your burdens to the only one who controls the universe…
Paul composed Philippians while he was in prison hence Paul was able to reject anxiety even during his own imprisonment.
The life of faith is filled with the constant challenge ultimately how terrifying life often is….
Well, the Bible in book of Philippians 4:6-7 encourage us to rejoice in the Lord, but also to enact gentleness, make sacrifices for others and focus on whatever is true and whatever is admirable.
The verse says, “Do not be anxious about anything.” It doesn’t state just ““Do not be anxious.”
The word “ANYTHING” means anything.
Many of us have lost our near and dear once due to the impact of the pandemic. Due to the economical crises people have also lost their, savings, business, jobs…. entire generation of families have died in some parts of the world.
The Bible gives teaches us that as Christians, we have a way to acknowledge our anxiety and even plead in our despair and feel that we are not alone.
It is easy for prosperous people, who have nothing to trouble them, to give good advice to suffering hearts; and these are generally as futile as they are easy but due to this pandemic God has taught everyone of us a lesson. If a thing is big enough to threaten me and make me anxious, it is better for me to talk to God about it.
So, the Bible teaches that you can fight everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving.’ That thanksgiving is always in place. If you consider what you have got from God and realizes that whatever you have is received from the hands of divine love, thanksgiving is appropriate in any circumstances.
The temper of the Christian should always be of thanksgiving. There is nothing too great and nothing too small that cannot be given to the Lord, and there is no area in our life, about which we cannot tell the throne of grace. There is no anxiety so disturbing that cannot be guarded by the perfect peace of God and no pain so deep that cannot be healed by Him.

It is by faith that we were saved, and it must be by faith that we live. It is by faith that every anxious thought is banished from our heart, and when faith in our heavenly Father is translated into prayers and supplication, with thanksgiving, our requests may be made in quietness and in confidence that He will hear and answer.
