If you read the book of Phillipians, you will see why PRAYER MUST ACCOMPANY THANKSGIVING….The answer is right there in the bible….if we pray WITH thanksgiving…we will have peace. Does it make sense? It doesn’t have to if God says it. That’s all I needed to hear. So when someone comes to you for prayr; explain it to them. It will make a huge difference.
Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. Philippians 4: 6
And the peace of God, vwhich surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.And uthe peace of God, vwhich surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 7
