Why worry when you can pray?

Trust Jesus, He'll be your stay;

Don't be a "doubting Thomas," rest fully on His promise

Why worry when you can pray?

Worry is the interest you pay on borrowed trouble

In her down to earth book More than sparrows, Mary Welch tells of her discussion about worry with a group of teenagers. Although they were Christians, they were as worried as unbelievers about the common things in life. As she lovingly listened to them, an unusual idea came to her for a game they could play.

Instead of saying "I'm worried," stop and say, "The Lord is my Shepherd" Then add "So I'm worried to death!" The students laughed at the absurdity of the idea, but they all promised to play this new "peace of mind" game.
