Father we thank you that we can have freedom from worry because of your Son, Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that anxiety and worry, that cause us stress and worry in our lives, are not from you. We stand on the promise that if we seek the kingdom of God then you will take upon yourself our cares, anxieties and worries. Give us grace to receive this promise in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
