Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Our Lord showed the need for prayer when He said, “Without me, you can do nothing”. (John 15:5) Then He assured us of the power of prayer, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened” (Matt 7:7-8). “And if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer”. (Matt. 21: 22)
