On my way to work this morning, I heard an interesting statistic; 92% of the things we worry about never materialize. The statistic came from a radio program by Dr. David Jeremiah who is currently doing a study on the book of Philippians.
“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 Jesus Christ.” Philippians 4:6-7
According to Dr. Jeremiah, when we pray we must be prepared to want the answer we receive and not pray with the mindset that God will always give us what we want.
