Here at NC, we are committed to praying everyday for 21-days as we move towards the Day of Pentecost on June 5th. This is a time for us to intentionally seek God for ourselves, our church body, our community, and our world. Join us as we pursue God’s will and purpose in our lives. Daily updates will be provided via our website, and social media.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
For many of us, the last several years have been some of the most challenging, stressful, and anxious years of our lives. In times like these, the peace that Paul talks about in his letter to the Philippians - “Peace which transcends all understanding” - is something we desperately need, and yet, for many of us it seems so elusive. The invitation from Paul in Philippians 4 is not an immediate escape from our anxious thoughts, but instead is an invitation to bring God into our frustrations, stresses, and discomforts; to share with Him the tensions of our lives, and allow Him to bring peace as He strengthens us from within.
