When in Trouble, Pray

When in Trouble, Pray

If you are anything like me, when I’m feeling anxious I tend to do, do, do. I act, sometimes erratically, though this rarely solves my problems. The Psalmist tended to do the opposite-“When I am in trouble, I pray...” (Psalm 120:1). Next time you are in trouble, consider slowing down instead of speeding up. Sit quietly, and pray for guidance. Listen for guidance. Notice the difference in how things work out.
