Make Strong Communities Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God." — Philippians 4:6 In any given situation, prayer is better than lamentations. . We cannot help but be concerned when things are not going our way. Yet, nothing is accomplished if we cry out that life is being unfair to us. It is better to stop, to consider the situation that we face, to reason out a proper approach to doing something about it — and to pray for the guidance we need, and for the strength we need to do whatever needs to be done.
