If we will watch our lives, we shall find that God meets the things that we commit to Him in prayer with special blessing. He often allows the best things that we have not committed to Him to be ineffectual, simply to remind us of our dependence upon Him for everything.
It is very gracious and thoughtful of God to compel us gently to remember Him. In every thing . . . let your requests be made known unto God. Let us bring our least petitions, Like the incense beaten small, All our cares, complaints, conditions Jesus loves to bear them all
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
