I love finding all the parts of my TEA CUPP in just one section of the Bible. It’s a refreshing way to pray, using these few verses to pour out my heart to Jesus. Today’s verses come from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippians, the fourth chapter, verses 4-7. Many of you are familiar with these famous words:
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7 (NKJV)
T for Thanksgiving
…but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving… Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)
E for Exalting:
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Philippians 4:4 (NKJV)
A for Admitting:
Be anxious for nothing… Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)
C for Calling:
Let your gentleness be known to all men… Philippians 4:5 (NKJV)
