Battling Anxiety with Thankful Prayer

Philippians 4:4–7

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

You don’t have someone who merely stands up for you,
You have someone who laid down His life for you,
So He could stand up forever for you in heaven, always sticking up for you & staring down the lying prosecutor of your soul.

You can keep getting up,
because Jesus is sticking up for you.

You can keep going,
Because Jesus is staying with you & He’s not going anywhere.

You can hope
Because Jesus is your help.

“The One who died for us…is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us & Christ’s love for us? Absolutely nothing can get between us & God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.”
Romans 8:34 MSG
