Prayer Focus - Worriedness, fearful thoughts or anxiety
Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Anxiety is not entirely a matter of distrust in God; it’s more than that. Anxiety is a distraction which leads to careless thoughts and interferes with our service to God. Worriedness, being overly concerned or nervous about our personal needs can hinder our spiritual growth and holiness. That’s why the Apostle Paul teaches that we should be mindful of this level of human emotions and the effect it has on us when it’s not controlled.
Application and Pray Journal Entry:
Describe what you are worried about or are fearful of. Include why your faith in that matter seems weak and if you feel you are doing the right thing concerning it.
Matthew 6:26 “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”
Matthew 7:7-8 “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.” New International Version
Philippians 4:6 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” New American Standard
Reflection: Pages 8, 10-11
Speak the description you wrote openly so that you hear it, presenting it to God. Do not hold back your emotions.
Pray your concerns giving them to the Lord asking for His help, guidance and deliverance from worry. Declare your trust in His ability and willingness to intervene in the matter. Thank Him wholeheartedly for His love for you.

Not getting enough protein in our bodies is bad for our health. Although the recommended intake is 50 grams per day, some people may need more. Protein increased muscle mass, maintaining a healthy weight and in general improves overall health.
Although the main source of protein (so we think) comes from eating meat, chicken, turkey and fish, here are other high protein foods to include in your diet:
Whey Protein Supplements
Pumpkin, Flax, Sunflower Seeds
