Casting Off Prayers

"casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."
1 Peter 5:7

Are you heavy laden and burdened by the cares of this world?

Are you concerned about...
  • your marriage
  • finances
  • children
  • elections
  • the evil that seems to be increasing
  • projects
  • school
  • ministry
  • work
  • health
  • relationships
  • (fill in the blank)
We've had some overwhelming circumstances around here as of late and I'm doing a lot of casting off prayers.  I always have a knitted dishcloth in progress so I'll often sit for a bit and have a quiet time of prayer, knitting 4 rows of the dishcloth while casting my cares off the Lord. The rhythmic click, click, clicking of my needles and time of prayer bring a feeling of calm to my anxious heart, knowing He cares, sees and is working even if I'm not yet seeing change.  

Try it... cast your cares.  Let go and trust.
