Monday Memory

Image Detail

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
                                  Philippians 4:6-7

Be careful for nothing.

"In nothing be anxious" (Revised Version).

The meaning is "Have no distressing anxiety about anything.

"Care-ful" used to mean "full of care".

But in every thing. Instead of anxiety, just lay the case before God, and trust him to do all things well.

Let your requests be made known unto God.

Three elements enter into the appeal to God: Prayer, the outpouring of the soul;

supplication, stating our wants; thanksgiving; we must always come to God, not in a complaining spirit, but with thankfulness
