Lord, we bring to You all our problems, we ask You for Your help. We know we can’t possibly see our way through them, but we know that You will work all things together for good for those who love You.
We surrender our problems to You, and we ask You to take care of all of these pressing needs. We trust in Your steadfast love, and we surrender any and all anxiety over our problems to You Lord. We walk ahead, into in the day, free from these burdens, because we know that You will provide for all our needs, in the name of Your Son Jesus.
