Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
,,, present your requests to God.
Presenting your requests to God means leaving them with him. Trusting Him with them. When we trust Him with our anxieties, worries and fears it takes the weight out of them, we’ve given the issue to a much more capable person to deal with it. When we take our pets to the vet, who knows more about animals than we do, we don’t hover around watching his every move, we don’t grab the pet back and try to cure it ourselves. We trust the vet to do what he is qualified to do and leave him to get on with the job. The same is true with God. Present your request to God and leave it with Him, trusting Him with it.
