Prayer {Think On These Things}

I used to think that prayer is what changes our circumstances, but I have learned over the years that prayer is changing me. For years, I have battled anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, because of my genetic make-up, personality, and past, I will continue the fight against fear for the rest of my life. Prayer has become my battle ax against the menacing thoughts that consume me on a regular basis. I have trained myself to pray before blowing things out of proportion thinking the world will end soon. Recently, in two totally different circumstances, I prayed, "Lord, please deal with this issue." And while He may not have dealt with it in the way I would have, His solutions turned out to be exactly what I needed. Then there are times when prayer isn't about asking for solutions, things, or a change in circumstances. Sometimes prayer is praise or quiet moments with Him listening to what He has to say. So why not join me in the month of October as we look at prayer. What is it? How do we go about it? How can it change us? Get out a pen and a journal as we write out the following verses and "Think on These Things"...

If you would like all the Think on These Things verses or want to know more about it, click here.

During the month I try to post my thoughts on the verses on Instagram. If you would like to follow me you can find me here. Also, if you are posting your own thoughts there please use the hashtag #thinkonthesethings. I would love to read how God speaks to you!!

There are many ways you can use these verses. You can read and meditate on them. You can write them out as you meditate on them. You can read them and then write about them in a journal or journaling Bible. Here are some of the items I use...
